Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015 - December

So is the last Tim Holtz Manila Tag for 2015 made. I have followed TIm's tutorial, and I think it's a good way to end the year. 
This year has gone quickly and there have been many challenges.
Tim and Mario must have many thanks to be still going strong and come with all their new ideas. Thanks for a great inspiring year.

I used Tim Holtz 8 # manila tag, stencil flourish, bow-tied, festive greenery and shape strips dies. Small talk occasions, mirrored stars, distress spray stain fired brick. Distress ink ground espresso, mowed lawn and vintage photo.
Nostalgic collection paper.
From the stash canvas, gesso, jute string and sewing thread.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I wish you the loveliest Christmas Eve and Christmas holidays. Many Christmas thoughts to you all
hugs Susan

#2 Birch Christmas Tag

I was very inspired by Claudia's tutorial on Our Cerative Corner

Claudia's blog is worth visiting so here's a link vonpappell 

I have lots of old cernit clay leftovers from when I made dollhouse thing.
I started to roll and model.

The holes that you see is for cord suspension, but I had to find another way to get it to hang. *LOL* (angel wing upside down).

I am very pleased with DecoArts products and I have used
Weathered Wood Crackle Medium
DecoArt media Fluid Acrylic Titan Buff, Raw Umber and Quiacridone Gold
I came the crackle on the cernit clay first, because it was dark, and it was enough with one layer Titan Buff on the top. To achieve the old look,
I painted with Quiacridone Gold.

I used a birch plate and cut it into a tag size.

The angel had paper thrown around the body (a paper I have had for years), little tulle, rusty ring for the halo and silk ribbons.

Now my tag is ready to hang on the Christmas tree.

It fits nicely with my first birch tag that I had created for SanDee&amelie's Steampunk November/December Challenge

Thank you for visiting my blog and I wish you a good Christmas time

PaperArtsy Masterboads - Topic 22 2015

PaperArtsy Masterboard challenge is really exciting and I have let myself be inspired by Chris Cresswell. It was especially the fine girls who started my imagination.

First I began my masterboard and painted it with a brush, you can see I made two boards which I was very happy with. 
The first one is painted with acrylic colors from Dylusions in my black Moleskin that is size A4. It's stamped with white acrylic color using Andy Skinners stamps.

The other (A4 white paper) masterboard is in bright colors also Dylusions colors, stamped with green acrylic color using Rubber Dance Stamps Pines Fir Yew 
I will definitely use this masterboard for some Christmas cards.

Here's my girl painted in acrylic colors and colored with Prismacolor and outlined with black ink, charcoal and stamped with a small floral motif on the girl's dress.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I wish you a really good Christmas month
Hugs, Susan

Steampunk/grunge Christmas Tag - SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenge

Don't miss our two-months long winter special challenge 2015.

My husband finds the strangest things for my scrap work, here it is birch bark plates !! I thought that I'd never need. But they had tags format and here you see how.

I always have a lot of white paper of choice before I go started with the creative, and before I know what it will become. But it should be Christmas ...
I cut corners and made a hole for the silk ribbon on the birch bark.
The ornaments have as the first layer black gesso, afterwards crackle medium, on the top I painted with titan buff to get it crakle. For the old look there comes diluted quninacidone gold on. To seal the hole painted ornament, matt medium.

I have used
DecoArt Media White Modeling Paste, Matte Medium, Black Gesso
Americana Weathered Wood Crackle Medium
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Titan Buff, Quinacidone Gold
Andy Skinner Stamp

Distress ink fired brick, black soot
Distress stain spray fired brick
Distress marker black soot
Carved ornament #2, retro ornament dies
Kraft - Core metallic collection
Inka Gold lavared, Prima Stickers
Silk ribbon, jute yarn, decor leaves and birch bark. White Cardboard.

There are made two small holes in birch bark, to pierce the ornaments jute yarn through so that they can be pulled off and hung on the Christmas tree or a troll branch.
It is hard to see on the photo but there is gold behind the word LOVE, and the back has got the same treatment as the front.

I imagine that I had found these old ornaments in my grandmother's attic...
I hope you enjoyed my Christmas birch bark tag.

Thank you for visiting my blog and have a good Christmas month.
Hugs Susan
