CAUTION Toxic Heart: Andy Skinner PROJECT, Creative Jump Start

HOWDY All!

Andy Skinner from DecoArt was recently a presenter for Nathalie Kalbach's Creative Jump Start Workshop. It began the first of January and is now coming to an end.  What a GREAT jump start to creativity with so many incredible teachers and projects. 

As a die-hard DecoArt fan ...  I was inspired to create my version of Andy's tag, but, trust me, his was LOTS better! Of course.

Andy used a tag, stamps, a heart, chipboard gears & nuts, and texture products. It was done in earth tone type colors using fabulous techniques.  
I just used what I had in my stash, and since it's close to Valentine's Day... I made it pinkish.  Yes - pink. Very uncharacteristic for me, except this time of year.  Gears and chains, too. Imagine that... I have gone girly industrial steampunkish grunge!!!!!!!!!



Andy began by using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Metallic Silver on his tag.  So did I, but I added some pink, and mounted that tag on a second pink tag. And, I promise you, Andy's tag had no flowers on it either - hehehhehe!!! Of course, since this was a paid workshop, I can't tell you how it was done, but I will show you some pictures. 
Most of you can guess the steps!

Oh wow Joi, this is fabulously grungy but the touches of pink, the pink backing tag and heart and the flowery ribbon give it a feminine feel. I don't know what Andy's looked like but I LOVE your version!! Anne xx
