How To Use Your Twiddley Bitz - Part 2 (Technique Tag Ring)

While creating the large technique frame I decided to create a Technique Tag Ring for myself and to teach from my studio at home.  I store the tags on a ring by my work desk in the studio.  Each tag has the technique written on the back in permanent marker:

Here are the tags...

And the techniques are:
Free = Naked Chipboard
Cogs = Naked with Glossy Accents or Diamond Glaze
Flower = Aged and Distressed (sandpaper/craft knife)
Clock = Distress Ink using applicator sponge + through a stencil
Owl = Distress Stain (effect is like a paint wash)
Glitter clock = Glitter and Jac Paper using a stencil

Door & Windows = Acrylic Paint
Cog & Flower = Crackle Paint – Tim Holtz (Ranger), Jo Sonja’s.
Butterfly = Colour Sprays/Glimmer Mist
Brown = Flocking and Hot Set Powder (powdered glue)
Dust = Diamond Dust on Glossy Accents + stencil
Flourish = (with a) Bling

Music = Stamped Stazon on Colourspray
Laced up = Punches!  Any how, any way!
Cog flower = Layered and Rolled
Black & Gold = Stencils – Crafters Workshop etc OR use your Twiddleybitz!
Squiggly Square = Sewing – hand or machine
Mottled = Alcohol Inks and applicator

Bird = Patterned Paper (Graphic 45)
Wood = Ink + Pens + Mod Podge = Wood grain!
Cogs = Cuttlebug Embossing Folder + Stazon ink
Anchor = Regular Embossing Powder (AED)
Flower = Opals or UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) stamped into
Key = Rusting Powder (Mod Podge, Rusting Powder, Vinegar)

Here's another photo taken from an angle - you can really see the detail in the tags this way :-)

If you'd like to come to a class to make your own technique tag ring or would like me to come to your store to teach this as a class - please contact me through this blog or facebook.  I'd be happy to discuss with you.

Thanks for stopping by
