Gamblers Sale

Hello all! 2014 brings new challenges, new vision and a new focus for Flourishes and today starts that focus. If you travel through our store, you know that we have a mix of old and new. Well, with a new year, we want to focus on all new! That means that what you'll find in the store will be smaller in scope, but always something to appeal to your creative side. What does this mean? We need to clear our shelves. What does that mean for you? You get a chance to save and save big!


I created this tag using various Tim Holtz products found in the Flourishes store.  I love getting inky and creating mixed media projects.  When I sat down, I had actually intended to make a card.  Somehow I deviated from that and made a tag.  Am I happy with the end result?  Not really.  It came out a little darken than I wanted, so I tried to white wash a little with gesso.  Since TH inks react to  water,  the washing was causing the ink to turn muddy.  I had to try and dry bush the gesso with very little water.  Next time I will use paint instead of ink pads.  I wasn't about to throw away the tag since I spent two hours of my time on it.  I decided to go ahead and share it.

I would have never guessed this was a "mistake" on your part. I think it's a happy accident because it's absolutely beautiful with all the textures and distressing!

I'm so glad you didn't throw this tag away! It is stunning! You tend to do light colored projects, so maybe this wasn't to your taste, but...WOW! I wish I could create something this beautiful! Love the warm, dark colors and your distressing is fab. Great job with the gesso, too!
