A few last tags before I start on some new assemblages I have in mind. I used
 Tim Holtz  Distress Paints and Inks and Layering Stencils, and 
and Our Lady of Rubber.  Time clock and rose stamp not accredited.

The technique was using painted stencils as a monoprint.

 Then layering with inks and misting, and  stamping focal points.

The amount of water you mist on the painted stencil
 gives a sharper or more loose background.

Interesting effect, as it gives a rather impressionist feel,
 as if the focal  stampings are showing 
through the back ground, instead of the other way around.

So, putting the tag techniques away for awhile - 
and now to rusty gears and old watch parts!
