Taylored Expressions August Peeks Day 2!


Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week (peeks August 4th, 5th and 6th and release on Thursday, August 7) with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE Blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win.

My first project uses In Other Words Travel. The book stack was colored with markers. The background was created with gesso, Ranger distress inks, embossing paste and drywall tape.

My next project uses Every Which Way, Little Bits Ants, Little Bits Picnic Basket, Mini Caps Alphabet & #s.

Today’s hop list!

Quilted Thanks

More Dare to get Dirty fun!

Today’s mixed media project uses a background done with ink and embossing paste (using drywall tape as a stencil).

I die cut 3 different colors (I used scrap papers from the Truly Scrumptious collection from The Paper Loft) with Sizzix 659758 Overall Patterns with  my Big Shot.

Next I glued all my pieces down randomly to create a pattern.

I used my Magnetic Platform to keep everything in place and die cut my “quilt” piece with 659711 Ornate Labels. I also cut my phrase (Impression Obsession CL549 More Basic Greetings)

Next I cut another label (my phase will go on this one).

I die cut two each of two sizes of 657552 Scallop Circle Framelits for my flower.

The flower was made by scrunching the scallop circles and layering.


Happy Tuesday!

There’s a new challenge  at Tiddly Inks – Let’s Hear it for the Boys!

Here is my card using Tiddly Inks (Harmony at Home – Clear Stamp Set). Die cut from Taylored Expressions.
