Tim Tag April 2016

Please join me on my new blog - paperglitterglue.com where this project is included with more already added. Thank you. I hope to see you there.




My April version of the 12 Tags of 2016 includes a dinner plate setting on the wood grain background. I didn't have the wood grain paper so I embossed a piece of cardstock. I painted the little Idealogy forks and knives to look like silver. You know I wrote one blogpost about my Tim tag failure at some of the monthly techniques that were demonstrated. Well, I think this one mainly worked. I don't think I did the resist part exactly right, but it looks the way I wanted it to look - as an old tabletop. That counts as success, right?

I ordered the mosaic kit because I wanted to see how that worked. It's pretty cool. And the mosaic glaze works exactly as advertised. It does not drip past the margins of the paper. It is amazing how it outlines each paper tile. It does take some time to dry, however. The grout looks nice as well.



I was thinking a teapot and/or teacup would look nice with this technique as well. Have fun if you make an April Tim Tag.

My Biggest Fan

Please join me on my new blog - paperglitterglue.com where this project is included with more already added. Thank you. I hope to see you there.


Here is a photo of my biggest fan holding his latest house. He is so proud of them and takes such good care with every one of his houses. He even took it to school. His teacher thought it was so cute how he held it like a treasure. It was stored in his cubby during the daytime so no other children could touch it. Of course  I did get permission from his mom, one of my co-workers, to post this photo.


Doesn't he have the cutest smile?
