Tagged at Ranger U!

We did 70 techniques at Ranger last weekend and most of them were on tags which makes it perfect to reference the ideas and techniques. , and here is a pic or two I took of the tags we made . These were made with Tim techniques, over a period of 3 days! The top one is using distress stickles, and distress inks and a lovely piece of grungeboard.
Did you know you could spread them with your finger and then heat dry them?
These were the tags we made with Claudine..

The top one was made with gesso thickly spread on, then drawn in and when dry, painted with a watery mixture of her gorgeous paints, and dabbed over with a cloth or kitchen paper to get variation. This one was the first we did with her, and I don't think I made the impression deep enough to read it.
I shall pick some of the techniques to show you later, but for now it suddenly seems that jet lag has kicked in, and a little nap seems in order! I should be so lucky! Still it is Easter weekend, so I do hope you are having a relaxing time this weekend. More tomorrow....

What a wonderful idea - to have a tag book of all the techniques you did - so many samples, but easy to carry around.
