Week 1 Big Picture Class

I started my Big Picture class "The Curious Scrapbooker" this week.  (link to the side).  May Flaum is the teacher, and she started us off with misting and washes.  This is something I haven't worked with in quite awhile, so it was a challenge, but once I got into it, a heck of a lot of fun!

I decided to make some tags using the different techniques.  May shared a cool technique where you rub your Tim Holtz distress ink on the craft sheet, add a drop of water, and it makes a cool wash.  I tried this with the tags as the background layer. Found some cool stamp designs to play with, so that was the next layer. Then she challenged us to use mists and stencils, so I played with that next (the Tim Holtz compass stencil).

Added gears and a bit of white pen to the first tag.

Liked the spray mist effect on the second tag, so stopped with that.

For my third tag, I added a gold shimmer spray, and a bit of white ink.

I had a lot of fun playing with some of my stash that I haven't used in way too long.  I also really enjoyed creating the tags with one of my favorite styles - SteamPunk!

  1. Maura,

    Looks like this class is a perfect fit for you...both challenging and fun at the same time. I have not worked with mists at all so it was really fun to see what you came up with. Thanks for sharing your tags with us. If the first week is any indication, I think you are going to have a great time with it!

  2. Maura, I need you to teach me what you learned. Absolutely beautiful!!


It was so nice of you to visit and leave a comment, thanks!!
