Tag Tuesday - Grid Tag + UHU

I haven't participated in Louise's Tag Tuesday in ages and I've really missed it! I think doing a quick tag is a great way to get your artistic juices flowing.

For my grid squares, I cut up a background piece I'd made awhile back using the Background Smoosh Resist technique from the Feb/March 2009 issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter. If you look closely, you'll notice that I also used the Drywall Stitching tech from the April/May issue and if you look really closely you will see that I used the Painted Mesh tech from the Dec/Jan 2008 issue.

To put the whole thing together, I used my trusty classic purple UHU glue stic. UHU is my favorite brand of glue stick because it really sticks! I am a diehard glue stick fan because no other type of adhesive gives enough 'open' time for me to move my pieces around. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I need to be able to adjust!

Did you know that every month the nice people over at the UHU blog give away free samples? All you have to do is promise to use the sample in a project on your blog. Head on over to snag a sample of UHU Twist and Glue - I'm excited to see how this works with things like ribbon and other embellishments. Tell them Shelly sent you! :)

  1. I like what you have done with all of those techniques. And I have to say that I am "stuck" on those UHU glue sticks, too!

  2. So soft and pretty Shelly! Love coral, don't see that so much.

  3. Lovely, Shelly. And thanks for giving us a detail closeup.


    Very balanced. I like touch of yellow. It warms up the tag and keeps it from being too pink. I don't think of you as a pink person.


  4. Wow! Love all of the different things you did with this - it turned out great!

  5. Yahoo for UHU! lol I was certain you had stitched on a machine until I read your description, Shelly! Your tag is really wonderful. And I'm going to check out UHU's blog, too! ;-)
