Hate might be too strong a word, but loath, abhor and dread are runner's up. Now I'm not referring to love or the celebration of love, I'm referring to making tags. If you want to see a grown woman throw a full on tantrum; sit me in a chair and tell me that I have to make a tag.
I could admire other people's tags all freaking day long and well past the cows having come home, but making my own gives me a butt pucker of 10.
So what did I do yesterday? I decided to combine one of my favorite things with one of my least favorite things and see how it went.
A favorite thing - Kewpies
Still having fun because I'm just playing with colors, inks and sticky things....
And then the (gasp) tag!
I decided that in order to keep the hyperventilating to a minimum, I'd start from the beginning of Tim Holtz 1st book Compendium of Curiosities I and re-learn and practice the techniques. Here I used Wrinkle Free Distress (pg.33), Scribble Stain Distress (pg.34), and Double Distress- brick wall (pg.40).
And here is the finished tag.
In the end, it made me smile so I cut that very word out and now it's on my shelf for a Valentine gift to me :)
Yeah to persistence overpowering belligerence!
Hugs and Happy Facing Your Crafting Fears,
