I've Finally Made A Start....................

.............On Tim's Creative Chemistry Course at last and I'm thrilled I did as I am finding it very easy to follow, informative and a great insight to my inks, paints and mediums.
I've only completed day 1, but it's a start, something of a miracle for me and a FIRST as I have never participated in an on-line class, probably due to lack of time but I needed a little me time and this is the perfect opportunity.
Here are my three tags, my homework you might say using the Blended Distress/Spritz & Flick Technique (tag 1) Brushless Watercolour Technique (tag 2) and Wrinkle-Free Distress Technique (tag 3). All my tags have been adorned with images from 100 Proof Press (Med. Many Line Circle, Madame Birdcage Skirt and Large Tree Skeleton) combined with a few of Tim's products too.  I will not go into details re the how to, you need to register for the course to enjoy the fabulous techniques and I would highly recommend it.
 I was going to leave the tags blank but as I was enjoying a little ME time I could not resist but to add a few details. The sentiment is from Tim's Words For Thought set which I thought was perfect for my tag.
Add into the mix a little touch of highlighting with a white pen, ribbon and a coordinated brad and one tag is complete.
I've used the Brushless Watercolour technique for years and never tire of it and I found it great to revisit the technique with the Large Tree Skeleton.  A few torn edges and Alpha Parts add just a little more interest.
I stapled my piece onto a tag coloured with vintage photo Distress Ink, simple but I am quite pleased with the result.
Finally tag number 3 which I embellished with Madam Birdcage Skirt giving her wings so she can take flight whenever she desires!
A little gathered ribbon and coordinated fibres and she is good to go.  Well one day completed, think I had better hurry along a little before the class is over and I've not even started day two LOL.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
