My Challenge at Turtle Soup

I made a tag and used some texture paste on it. I used a stencil and the paste to create the background, then I went over it with a couple different colors of ink. I stamped the car and cut it out and then used a die to cut out the traffic sign. The keys are real and one I made rusted and the other I left plain.

In case you don't have Texture Paste, it is so easy to make and this is what I used on this tag.

Texture Paste:
1/2 cup baking soda
2 Tablespoons white school glue (I buy mine at the Dollar Store)
1-2 Tablespoon of white acrylic point.
Mix this up and add just the amount of water you need for a thick paste.

Put in an air tight container.

The beauty of this is if you don't want it white, just use the color of paint that you want.



Sketchaton is still going on and there is still plenty of time to join in so why not come and join us at Turtle Soup

Spring is in the air

Spring is approaching (at least I hope so) it means soccer time. I did a layout using Punch 906 and made the arrows on the layout. I just used the pieces most people throw away and glued them on a strip of paper. I used part of the border around the purple to create a frame and then finally I cut up part of the border and used it as embellishment along the side. Please don't forget to check out these punches at the store and be creative with your punches.

Grandma's Little Helper

We were cleaning mom's house to have it ready when she came home from the nursing home and Tyler wanted to help. He did a great job.
