Definition: Aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.

The fleeting moments of knowledge in which we discover our existence are facts that can be committed to memory. We can enlarge this aggregate memory and refashion it as we go through a lifetime. By saving these memories on paper and reconstructing the images of our lives. We see the art of our lives unfolding before us.

Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams.
I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.

Friday, May 24, 2013 My Mind's Eye Remarkable Collection.

 Hello Lovelies....

I have a background tutorial for you using My Mind's Eye Remarkable Collection and Tim Holtz technique Dabber Resist from his "A Compendium of Curiosities" book.

This is an easy way to get color onto a tag and to use those great stamps in the collection. Then just use embellishments to decorate. So Fun.

Step 1: Pull out your tag, stamps, White Dabber Paint, Distressed ink and blending tools.

 Pick out your stamps that you like use an acrylic block add the white paint to the stamp.
 Randomly add the stamps to your tag. Be sure not to press too hard ad it will distort the image.
 Heat set.
 Step 2: Adding distress ink to the tag. I am using a seasonal pack and walnut stain for the edges.
 Here is how that tag looks with just the seasonal pack of Distress ink.
 This is with Walnut Stain on the edges.
 Take a damp cloth to remove the color from the white paint resist.
 Step 3: Embellishments-! 
Find the Washi tape in green in your bundle. 
Fold it over and stick the sticky sides together.

 Slip the tape through the tag hole. Punch a hole in the tape and add the brad to the tape.
Find the enamel dots and add them to the centers of the stamped images.
 Using the chipboard "Date" piece add it to the tage right under the brad.
Add the multi layered sticker "How Sweet it is to be loved by you" right under the "Date" Chipboard. 
Then add "This way for fun" and "Tolken 5 Value" to bottom of tag.

Congrats-! You have created a fun tag for a gift or a bottle of wine.
Wishing you a wonderful Day.
