The first Friends With Flair Friday of 2010 and a new technique



Welcome to Friends With Flair! Today is Unity's customer blog hop. Make sure you visit all the participants in search of the FWF blinkie. Leave a comment on that blog to be entered for some Unity rubbah! If you need to know who to hop to next, you can get the full list from Unity's blog.

If you've visited my blog recently, you know that I've been attempting Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas. So far, I've only done 5 (today's tag was Tim's 12th one - see all of them HERE), but I'm sharing with you my favorite so far. And let me tell you, for such a tiny project, it took a LONG time. This was the first time I've ever made 3D flowers, so it took me quite a while to follow all the directions - oh, and there's always the inevitable snag we run into when trying something new. I really love how this came out, though, and may even try it again!  =D

I don't own very many "Tim things", so I had to do a lot of substituting. He used grunge paper and Perfect Pearls on his flowers; I subbed in watercolor paper, Pearl Ex mixed with gum Arabic + water, and Twinkling H2Os. He used a gorgeous script stamp; I subbed a text stamp from Unity; He used some music-themed dsp; I had NO black and white, so I created my own with a Unity background stamp. Tim used a cute little ticket embellishment; I made my own from scratch. He also used some Stickles on his roses, but I used shimmery paints to make the roses sparkle.


Thanks for stopping to visit today. Happy New Year, and enjoy the rest of your hop!
