August tag swap *partners posted!
« on: July 14, 2014, 04:14:17 PM »
I decided to carry on our tag swap that we did over at 2ps.

I hope you all will be able to join in!

The standard requirements are still the same
-must be a rectangular hanging tag
must have stamping on the tag

Most months I do a technique requirement and a theme. Sometimes theres a twist too!

I'm keeping it simple this month.

Start looking for that white crayon!

This months technique requirement is crayon resist.
I'm assuming a lot of you have done this technique before. If not, its pretty simple to do. You can google it and come up with a lot of tutorials, or search youtube if you are a visual learner like me. I found several good ones pretty quickly.
No theme this month, let the technique shine!

The sign up for the swap will be now through the 17th I will post your partners on the 18th. Deadline to get your tag in the mail to your partner will be the 30th.

any questions, just post them here!

I want in - have to find a white crayon.  Must be one around here, somewhere or I will borrow one.

Okay I am in. I tried some crayon resist a month or so ago and was really unhappy with my result.  This is a good push to try try again.

Thank you for hosting LeighAnn!

I'm signing on, Pug. I may need to refresh my memory on doing crayon resist. This technique should work well with Aug. KIAE. Thanx for hosting, pal!

Count me in  O0 I will go ahead and get mine finished by Monday since I'm having surgery on Tuesday! That way if something happens, my tag will already be complete  O0

Hooray! We're off to a great start!

It's been a while since I've done crayon resist.

I found a video  using embossing folders with the crayon resist also last night. I had forgotten about that way too. I may have to play around with that too.

Yo, Pug! I did a quick search about crayon resist & refreshed my memory. Thanx for the noodge.  Like CG, I already have an idea for my tag. And I'm pleased to hear that you may be offering more tag challenges that aren't swaps.  O0

I have a decent prototype of my tag going. Want to lay out another stamp or two and clean up the edges for the real deal. Crayon is fun!  Even if they do keep breaking...

Love my 'broke' crayons, Heidi! And like sharpening crayons. too! The 'flakes' make such great additions as resists & color. Thanks for the reminder, pal! O0
