Sunday's Tag Demo catch up!

The first Sunday of each month we meet up @ The Crafting Place locally on Russel and I do a two hour tag demo. It's very mixed media based -- focusing on paints, ink, stamps, chipboard, and other materials.

For September I shared with the group the post-it-note masking technique for layering and scene stamping.

This was the base tag for the demo that everyone based their creations from. I did bring a few different bottles, plant type stamps, bugs and celestial bits for some variety and ease of use. The base tag includess the Bottle, Sunflowers, Dandelion with extra seed, Don't Let Anyone and Moon Circle stamps. The tag also has Distress Ink in Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass, and Walnut Stain, UmWowStudio Chipboard Daisy and Light bulb mask, Archival ink in black, Sakura of America Micron and May Arts Burlap String.

Here are some photos from the class as they worked on building up their scenes :

We had 10 or 11 people stop by to do tags, and they all turned out SO AWESOME!  You can see my demo area here, using the kraft mat. It works out pretty well with these nice big long tables provided by The Crafting Place, we can pass around lots of supplies easily. Here are some attendees inking up stamps, stamping post its and tags! They're fussy cutting and layering. It's pure awesome.

And here you can see some closeups of the girls at work :

You can see the postits working as a mask really well in these shots. Each month we explore a different technique and or medium (sometimes several!) -- we'd love to have you down :) Get all the info HERE and stop by the Meetup HERE (Look for Free Demonstration of Mixed Media) if you'd like to register and or need a reminder. They're completely FREE!
