Claudine Hellmuth's paints right now, and "anything goes" gave him the perfect excuse to get good and messy! Other products he used included the Numero, Winged Things 2 and Psychedelic Grunge stamp sets
paint dabbers for almost the entire tag, She scraped paint onto the tag for the background (raspberry, pool and snow cap), stamped with paint and Dylusions stamps for some accents, and then stamped some Dylusions images on white card stock and colored in with watered down paint. Stamped the spider/web and sentiment with jet black archival ink.
Tracy decided to liven things up a little this week with a few bright colours from Distress Stains spiced marmalade, fired brick and mustard seed along with funky images from Dylusions in the form of Love Struck Lucy, Around The Edge, How Does Your Garden Grow and Basic Backgrounds stamp sets. A little texture from Gesso and Tracy's tag accordion is good to go!
Anything goes....well Lynne took this at face value. She collected some supplies, Gesso, Multi Medium, Distress Stain, Perfect Pearls Mist, Archival Ink ~ Sepia and Jet Black, an acrylic paint mixture, Altered Orange and Traditional Tan and a few non~traditional supplies, dictionary paper, cardboard, toilet paper roll, plastic grocery bag and ooooohhhh the fun she had!! Join her and play along!!!
Nancy chose one of her favorite tried-and-true Tim background techniques: ink and flick. Here she used Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Weathered Wood and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks, blending colors onto a manila tag. Next, Nancy stamped the saying from Urban Tapestry onto a piece of transparency (similar to this one) with black Staz-On. Resin flowers, a Tim hinge clip and vintage lace were added to the tag.
Candy decided to dip her toes into the Dylusional waters this week by creating her first Dylusional tag. Using a combination of the uber talented Dyan Reaveley's Stamp Sets; Candy created this colorful and whimsical tag. Color Wash bathes the background and all of the detail work is done using a Small Sakura Water Brush and Distress Reinkers.
To Sarah, 'Anything Goes' is a chance to let the imagination run free. She made a girl's dress, sewn using Tim's Tissue Wrap aged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. She stamped the dress with Papillon butterflies, added an Idea-ology Ornate plate to the belt before finishing off with a buttoned back and home-made wire coat-hanger.
Terry decided to make a box and matching bag with lots of hearts, since she loves hearts. The background of both are worked on with Gesso and Distress Inks. The hearts on the box and the wings are from the Grungeboard set from The Tim, lots of crackle paint is used on the lid of the box, the lace with hearts is worked on with Tattered Rose and VictiorianVelvet and Vintage Photo and the sentiment is from The Tim's Philosophy Tags.
I have the journalling bug good and proper ... so I used the Anything Goes theme to make a mini journal! I coloured the cover with Frayed Burlap Distress Stain and added Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges. The stamps I used were Tim Holtz Shabby French and Odds and Ends. The pages are all Ranger Manilla Cardstock ... which is my favourite surface to ink on.
