This is only Distress inks and Tim's Burlap and Bubble you can see I set on my own path to begin with ..
 I am minus many of the supplies needed to join in with his tutorial sadly but what I love is you add to your wish list that way..
Time being short today and the lack of dies I just fussy cut one layer. This stamp is a beautiful stamp from Stampers Anonymous out of the Tim Holtz collection . It is Butterfly's and Moth's..on my wood block stamp the item no is p2-1673.
I used my black uniball pen and then my white one on the out side of the Butterfly's and moth's I have a small circular sponge I used Distress inks
stormy sky

mustard seed
peeled paint.
I used a very old stamp to me one I purchased many years ago. (at the  right hand bottom corner), from Stampers Anonymous and I fail here because I do not remember the name of I had to look it up. It is Tattoo corner p1-1424 here is a link to it
The sentiment is also a Stampers Anonymous stamp and it say's "when i want to see love defined i look at you" and the small wheat /flowers on bottom left is also from their store in clear cling mount.
I added a large ticket I cut from manilla folder and added some silk ribbon and a burlap flower I inked up.

Altered Tattered and Timeworn "Butterfly" 6x6 swap Page 2

Hi everyone how are you? I am working through my to do list today and I wanted to show you page two of my "butterfly"6x6 page with yahoo groups Altered Tattered and Time worn.
My inspiration came from Aaron today with imperfectimpulses.I will give you a link and you can also find his blog through his videos.
I will show you a few photos of my process. well here we go ...Have a awesome day.
susan s

First this is Aarons link to the video that inspired me. 

Of course I modified to my point of view for the theme and the group.
MY acrylic job covered my papers. !!!OH SUSAN YOU FAILED RIGHT OFF THE BAT!
well to make up for that I used one of my favorite stamps from Stampers Anonymous
This little stamp is a Wendy Vecchi Stamp..happens to be one of my favorites
The item no on the stamp is D2-1435
I stamped in Distress Broken china by Ranger Ink,I could not go back so I went forward so there are not any unique paper showing under the acrylic because my acrylic was to thick so i used the stamp.
moving on...
I did use the credit card and my black soot dabber with acrylic ink on this page  and mu uniball white gel pen to out line the words and the card marks
The large and small butterfly are from Tim Holtz cling mount sets also available at Stampers Anonymous

Now I know everyone loves goodies on their pages so I had to figure out how to become a bit vintage on a journal page
so I used another one of my favorite stampers anonymous stamps to pull things together .
I made her out of a manilla folder and used several inks to color her
Lindys stamp Gang Starburst Hydrangea Blue, Perfect Pearls Mist forever violet, and Dylusions Funky fushia.
I wrote my feelings on a butterfly in my white uniball gel pen and glued my butterfly down with my tacky glue...I am liking that butterfly lined in with my black uniball pen and the outter layer lined with my white uniball pen and of course gave her antennas :)
That was not enought uummm I needed more.
Oh yes I loved Tim Holtz ideology spinner there ..well my little page is looking up but still I know how we love our goodies :)..

Tim Holtz ideologies flower and lace? well it works for me today.
I added a ribbon and finished.
Thanks for stopping in

Altered Tattered and Torn 6x6 swap "BUTTERFLYS'

Welcome to my blog.
This is Day one of twelve making a Butterfly journal page swap with Altered Tattered and Torn group.
This page is inspired by France Papillon's new post

Altered Tattered and Torn group was All Things Tim's so there is no confusion.

I have enclosed some photo's of how I made this page.
I cut my cereal box 6x6
and tore stips of paper gluing them on in a downward layer
I added gesso over them
and then a thin coat of beige acrylic paint
I sprayed with Ranger Perfect Pearls mist and let it dry
I used Walnut Distress and Mahogany Distress ink around the borders.
I tore thicker strips of paper for the middle and along the side and covered them heavily in the Perfect Perals Mist Forever violet
The stencil comes in a two pack from Ranger ink one is burlap and this one isBubble. I used My Distress Black soot dabber.
The die cut is a spare I had stashed back and honestly I am not sure which one it is..but as you can see I made a hole and used a brad to attach it in.
The photo wheel die cut I cut in 1/3 inked in my Ranger black archival ink and dried then added black diamond stickles.
I used my small little butterfly stamp and my wood mount moth stamp to make miniature tags.
I also used scraps from my images I cut out and save for the circle on the side.
You can see I stickled the die of the butterfly under the circled picture and the part of the photo wheel.
The circled image I used Tim Holtz tissue paper and sprayed again with the Perfect pearls mist forever violet. I rouched the edges and laid is on a clear  die cut by creative imaginations.
I trimmed the sides and added some burlap string to the miniature tags.
my letters came from making memories no 31616. I lined and black ink and added some glued lace to the bottom.
It is a bit of a different version than France Papillon's but she was my Monday inspiration ..
Well that is that and I shall include the photos now and I am off to find Tuesday Inspiration for page two of this swap.
I want each page to be different..I became tired of reputation this past year and reach with in my self to do the unusual.
Thanks for stopping in
