Summer of Creative Chemistry: Weeks 2 & 3

So, funny thing happened as I was working through class with Tim Holtz in Summer of Creative Chemistry...I discovered I never made a whole bunch of the sample tags from CC101! Not sure how that happened, probably life just got in the way at that time. Good thing I am back in class, catching up, playing, learning and just having FUN!!

My Week 2 tag: 
I was trying to make it look like a nest at the bottom with the fringed tag and the cheesecloth.

Week 3 Tag:
Playing with Perfect Pearls - it's been ages! Trying to show some of the shine below. Love these stamps!

And then...
I had the brilliant idea to add to the tag so I could enter it into Creative Carte Blanche's "Winged Things" challenge! I was thinking about air and flying with my hot air balloon, so why not add some wings to make it into a funkier tag? Here it is...

I just cut slits on either side of the balloon and slid the butterfly wings into place. Totally different look from the original!

Have a wonderful day!!


  1. What a great tag, Maura! I love the wings added to the hot air balloon. I'm jealous of your tag samples for CC101. I need to do that. ;-)

  2. Awesome tags! I love the Week 2 tag - it has so much personality!

  3. Wings on a hot air balloon! I love it!! Your tag is amazing, as are your other Creative Chemistry samples. Well done!

  4. Maura...Your tag is awesome! I don't think I've ever seen butterfly wings in combination with a hot air balloon! I love it! Love your background and the airmail tissue tape at the bottom of the tag. Beautiful coloring on your butterfly wings, too. Great idea for our Winged Things challenge. Thanks for sharing with us. Your Creative Chemistry tags are really cool as well!

  5. What a fun tag, Maura! How clever and funky to add the butterfly wings to the hot air balloon! Now it can really take off! Thanks so much for sharing this fun project with all of us at Creative Carte Blanche!

  6. Wow--beautifully artistic work!

  7. Awesome tags...I love them all!!! Thanks for playing along with us at Creative Carte Blanche!
