Crazy for Crazy Birds

I absolutely love the Crazy Bird stamp set from Tim Holtz.  You can do so many things with this set from card making to journals, to painting them onto tiles. You are only limited by your own imagination.  These stampsets are selling like crazy so if you see one you better buy it or they will sell out.

I bought these 4x4 tiles at Lowes for $3.97 for a set of 9. I have only used 4 out of the set. I cleaned the tile with  90% alcohol front and back before doing anything at all. I then put some tissue paper down to help give my tile some grip before painting. I painted and stamped my background then I stamped the image with Versamark ink then I stamped another bird onto watercolor paper and colored it with watercolor markers. I glued the paper on top of the image to give it a raised surface and highlighted the image with a brown pen. I then applied some water proof Mod Podge on all the tiles so they could be used a coaster or just as a decoration, I also backed each tile with cork so it would not scratch any surface. I had so much fun making these crazy birds that I will be making more of them.  TFL!

Folio mini

Good morning.........I just can not give Chandra enough credit for her creativity and her awesome tutorials. I call her the one and done. She creates a book and makes a video..she gives a quick run through and then she does an awesome tutorial video. She does not play games when it comes to her books.

She created a folio called Simple Stories-Summer Vibes can see that video here

I created two folios after watching her tutorial. I used a retired paper pack from Close To My Heart called Yuletide Carol and the new Anna Griffin Halloween Paper found only at HSN.

Thank you Chandra for another awesome tutorial and here is my version of her Summer Vibe Folio.
Thanks for watching.
