Enjoy The Journey

Time for my interpretation of Day 8 of Creative Chemistry and this time around I am focusing on the Paint Dabber Resist Technique and the Shattered Stains Technique.
As is the norm for me I have created my own tag using the techniques from the class.  My focal images are the handsome gentlemen from Tim's Steampunk set.  I have cut three squares 1.5" square and stamped the handsome gentlemen onto each and coloured with Distress Inks and spritzed with water.
You can see the Dabber Resist in the background, I used one of the backgrounds from the Mixed Media set stamped with snow cap Paint Dabber onto Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Back Canvas and coloured with Distress Stains broken china, faded jeans, peeled paint and vintage photo.  I have then added a Word Band secured with twine and stapled into place for added dimension and interest.
Twine has also been stapled into place at the bottom of my tag along with gears cut using the Mini Gears Set. All the gears have had the Shattered Stains technique applied using Distress Clear Rock Candy and coloured with Distress Stains, this adds fabulous texture to a creation and the colours are fantastic combined with the Rock Candy.
To add to the steampunk feel I have added one of the fabulous Clock Keys giving more dimension and further interest to my tag.  It always surprises me how much creativity you can fit into one tag!
Embellishments also include a Game Spinner and Mini Sprocket Gear to each of the die cut gears. All the edges have been distressed with the Paper Distresser and the decorated piece have been added to a tag cut from white card using the Tag and Bookplate die and coloured with Distress Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Tracy x x
