Some creations from Tina

Hi, it's Tina here with some of my creations to share with you.

I made my album by die-cutting the edges of my chipboard and acetate using Tim Holtz dies, and Zuttering it all together.  I  then painted, and Glimmer Misted, then added Glimmer Glam and heat embossing.  Then I embellished and added photos.  It was a major mission, but I absolutely love how it turned out.


 Sorry about the blue tinge , we've had a lot of cloudy days lately!

 The tiny birdcage was made using Shrink Plastic and Tim Holtz dies.  The pieces with spritzed with Glimmer Mist before heating.

Here's a layout I've done using Kaisercraft English Rose.  I stamped and heat embossed with gold embossing powder on the corners.

I've used a Kutalicious acrylic word for my title and coloured it with Tim Holtz Alcohol inks and added some Metallic Mixatives.
If you've never used Alcohol inks before, they are an amazing product.  They work well on all glossy/non-porous surfaces, but can also be used to colour seam binding, fabric and ribbons.  They come in small bottles which last forever, because you only need to use a few drops.  I use them to colour flowers & rhinestones, on acetate and metal foil, you can "age" metal embellishments, & re-colour well as a heap of other things!  I love the amazing  effects you get with them, especially on metal and acetate.  There's a nice tutorial  here, otherwise if you Google 'Tim Holtz alcohol ink tutorial' you'll get lots of You-tube  links to watch Tim do his magic.   

 I love this Gabrielle collection by Bo Bunny.......and I've added a dash of Tim Holtz' new Kraft Resist paper.

I'm off to dance Eisteddfods all weekend, watching my darling daughters.   Still have to sew sequins on costumes so I'm off....
Have a great weekend
