What's on YOUR Workdesk Wednesday? My desk is actually fairly clean as I have been working very hard at putting away what I use before I go to bed at night.  Since I share my desk with 2 kitties, it doesn't do well to leave pots of paint and water or piles of inkpads out on the desk.

Here's a journal page that is on my desk this morning.  I had tucked it under the desk on a shelf to dry overnight and pulled it out to take a look at it this morning.

I've been really bad about posting my WOYWW (What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday) as usually I don't have anything on my desk on Wednesday.  I don't do much art at my desk on Tuesday nights and I'm off and running on Wednesday mornings to my day job.  But this week, I had started a project on Monday for Mixed Media Mondays and wanted to work on it some more.'s off to the day job!  Board Meeting day and I have to minutes to take, so it will be a long one for me.
See you soon!

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2013


Finally had time to work on my February Tag.  I didn't have most of the supplies that Tim used this month for his 12 Tags of 2013...but I loved the vibrant red of Tim's tag so I jumped in to see what I could come up with.  
I pulled out my Distress Inks and rubbed them into my Craft Sheet and spritzed, then swiped my tag through the inks to give it the brilliant red.  I dried the tag with a heat gun and then flicked with more water to give it the mottled background.

I dug out some Valentine and Love themed rubber stamps from Just for Fun Rubber Stamps and stamped a white card background and the tag.  I distressed the edges of the card with Barn Door and Walnut Stain Distress Inks.  

For the Co-ordinations cardstock I didn't have any black so I took a greenish gray color and colored it with Black Soot Distress Ink and embossed with a Cuttlebug emboss folder and tore out the words "loving" and "you".  A little Recollections bling, and X and O from the Word Play die and some ribbon and tissue tape finished it up.
