The Tag Video
I felt like we needed a little sunshine yellow in our lives, and sunshine yellow we got. The good news about yellow is that the black pen shows on it wonderfully. :) If you are viewing this post on a mobile device or the video is not showing up below, please click here to watch and/or download the video.
Here is a photo of the finished Lesson 09 tag:
Here’s a close-up of the masking technique for today. If I was to do this tag again, I would use Mustard Seed as the middle layer of ink instead of the last one. This would make the two layers of masking show up much better. I still like how this one looks, but you totally can’t see the middle layer of ink on the finished tag. It’s about about the learning experience, right? ;)
Card #1 focuses on the concept of proximity to create unity. Even though our elements are different colors, shapes and sizes, everything still ends up unified. I love it!

Here’s a look at the finished result:
I can’t remember the last time I used the smallest die from a nesting set and liked how it turned out. This is a fabulous way to take those adorable, little die cuts and make them into something that really shows them off. Labels Sixteen from Spellbinders and the Framelits Stars from Sizzix really shine here. Oh, and don’t forget about the sparkle from the diamond stickles and sequins. That really steps up the card to the next level.
Card #2 shows off theme in a way that’s definitely outside my comfort zone – vintage. This is the perfect opportunity to step outside your comfort zone, too. That’s what classes are for!

Here’s a look at the finished result:
Even though we combine several manufacturers here, everything still works together because it all falls under the same shabby-chic feel. I especially love that Flutter By and You’ve Got Mail work so well together even though both sets are very different by themselves. It’s all about that vintage treatment! This card features an especially fun watercoloring technique using Distress Markers and the Detailer Water Brush from Ranger. Love!

Leave a comment below about whatever you want, or answer the question: what’s your favorite thing about fall? We had our first day of high-60s degree weather yesterday, and I couldn’t be happier. I love nothing more that walking around outside amongst the changing leaves wearing a nice, cozy sweatshirt. So I’d say sweatshirt weather is my very favorite thing about fall. What is yours? Has fall started to arrive where you are, or are you still holding on to summer for as long as possible? With school starting this past Tuesday, I’m okay with the cooler weather and less sunscreen. ;) <– comments are now closed. You can always tell me your thoughts on twitter @waterfilterlove!
See you on the next lesson!
