2009 Projects – Project 3 – 52 Tags

I know I should stop adding new projects to what promises to be an
already very full year but after this one I only have one more in mind
so I think I’m close to the end.

For this project, I decided to combine my own version of Julie’s href="http://balzerdesigns.typepad.com/balzer_designs/2008/11/project-fiftytwo.html">Project
52 with Emily’s href="http://embers.typepad.com/e/2009/01/52q-beginsa-year-of-questions-and-answers.html">52Q.
I wanted to spend more time trying new techniques, exploring and seeing
what I like so I made a list of all the techniques I could think of
(almost all of which doesn’t require me to buy any new supplies of any
kind.) I ordered manilla tags so that I can do a tag a week using
Emily’s questions as my prompts and a tehcnique from my list. I used
Excel to randomize my list (I am a computer geek afterall) and I’m only
allowed to go up or down 4 in the list each week for my technique just
so I don’t spend too much time picking one.



Since the tags are still on order, this might take another week to start
or I might just make my own tag for this week, we’ll see. But here’s the
list of all my techniques.

  1. Misters (tim’s mini misters)
  2. 3-dimensional embellishments
  3. water soluble crayons
  4. brayer/paint
  5. Vinyl
  6. paper pleating
  7. paper piecing
  8. Wire
  9. make my own flowers
  10. something with a lot of ink/watercolor like debee
  11. play with transparencies (made at home)
  12. UTEE
  13. create a lot of layers/depth
  14. Metal embellishments
  15. resist ink/castaway ink…
  16. Fabric
  17. Sanding
  18. Polymer Clay (SculpeyIII)
  19. beeswax
  20. bubble wrap
  21. Diamond Glaze
  22. gum arabic/pearlex
  23. alcohol inks
  24. Chalking
  25. flocking
  26. Acrylic paint (dabber or golden)
  27. use only rubons
  28. Grungeboard
  29. masking
  30. spray paint
  31. microbeads
  32. Masking Tape
  33. bleach
  34. doodling
  35. Machine Stitching
  36. printing on canvas (using canvas in general)
  37. Something with stamping
  38. Fragment charms
  39. something with complicated stitching
  40. Alcohol ink mixatives
  41. crackle paint/glaze
  42. do one of tim’s tags
  43. Stickles/distress or otherwise
  44. Vintage
  45. embossing
  46. Glossy accents
  47. Glimmer Mist
  48. Felt
  49. paper poking
  50. Distress Ink
  51. hand stitching/emboridery
  52. something with metal

I picked tags cause they are small and make this project more manageable
for me. This will be my version of an art journal this year.
