Dyan Reaveley Technique

I thought I would try one of Dyan's techniques in my journal.  I must say it was relaxing and fun to do!  I did have to create my own Bert because I do not own him so I drew him free hand with a marker on some Mask plastic and cut it out!  It worked fine!

Tag Bookmark

I played with some more masks today and made this bookmark for my daughter.  She wanted a cool bookmark.  I don't know if she thinks it is cool but I do because of the masking.  I added some lines to the flourish mask with the faded jeans distress marker.  I water colored the flowers by applying distress ink onto my mat and picking it up with a water brush.  I love the colors.  Peacock, mustard see, gathered twigs and peeled paint.  It was edged with walnut stain.

Sunflowers and Distress Markers

I was feeling like I needed a bit more summer so I stamped away with a new sunflower stamp and colored them with my distress markers!  I love how the distress markers shade the colors.  It never gets old and is so de-stressing to do!! haha!

Discovering Myself Tag

I love Tim Holts's Remnant Rubs!  The details are great and the choice of words are fantastic so that you can make about any sentiment that you want.  The background of this tag was actually made from waste inks on my mat from other projects.  I love the colors that combined to make this background.

August Tag 2013

I love masking!  Tim Hotlz's August Tag 2013 is all about using this masking technique.  This technique is so cool!  I love the dimension that you get using it.  Here are my two different size tags that I used the masking technique.
