Tag Board

Yayyy!! I got my project done!! Over on the ATT yahoo group they did a tag swap called Chaos Swap sponsored by Pam Austin, Pam & Nancy Mayer then spent countless hours in painting the canvas's, decorating the top & bottom and assembling them all together on canvas board for 32 players!! I can't imagine doing more then one! If you are a fan of Tim Holtz you should join the All Things Tim yahoo group, there is so much talent on that group, total inspiration!!

The tag board looked so awesome, I told my boss about it and she wanted to see it so I showed her and she thought it was a cool idea for a class. So I have been busy, busy, busy trying to get something similar done for an example for a class. I have slowly gotten her to carry some of Tim's products in the store but doesn't have a lot so had to improvise on some things as I can't supply everyone out of my stash of goodies!! So if I was just doing it for myself I would have used a lot more idealogy pieces etc. on it! I was on a time crunch so made a few mistakes along the way, but all in all it came out ok. We will do the class in two sessions. I had fun with it, a lot of different techniques most out of Tim's book which some I had tryed before some new to me. Loved the water stamping!! Used Tim's die cuts and embossing folders, distress ink, alcohol ink, distress stickles, distress embossing powder, smooch, utee, perfect pearls, both Tim & Wendy's stamps and what ever else I could get my hands on! Tryed the drunken scotch technique and love it, thanks Kat!! I absolutely love Tim's embossing folders, they emboss so deep!! Way to cool!! It looks better in person but here is a pic of my project....

Thanks for looking!

Have a good one!!

    So glad all our extras inspired your own board. It looks wonderful (but of course, I'm biased! :) Pam

  3. Great stuff, Donna, what a tremendous amount of work! Your class participants will be lucky, lucky!

  4. Wow I can't believe how much it looks like our board..... The header and bottom trim were Pam's ideas and they do look wonderful, of course.
