There's five Fridays this month so we have a special Tag Friday over at A Vintage Journey with tags galore from the Creative Guides.
I wanted to remind myself of the techniques Tim has been using on his monthly tags and have pinned all the ones for 2014 and so far for 2015 on Pinterest. I have to say it is now really easy to find the correct post quickly for reference and go back over the process steps.
For this tag I knew I wanted to use some of the new things I had brought back from California particularly the distress marker spritzer so I was able to find a background and Tim's tutorial to get me started.
I began with the tissue tape and distress paint background, Tim shows this on his tag in April 2014 .
I used some new tissue tapes with vintage photo and pumice stone distress paints followed with walnut stain distress ink.
I began designing,making and gathering embellishments to use ......
... with stained courtyard frameworks to add to the background. To finish it off I used my new distress marker spritzer with gathered twigs and splattered some antique linen distress paint over it.
I didn't use the memo pin and token embellishment from Tim's tag this month so I tried it out here and added aged mahogany distress paint to the word.
I finished off with some extra tissue tape and a couple of remnant rubs.
Thanks for stopping by, I can't believe it's Friday again but yay it's the weekend. Hopefully I will be going shopping with the girls - that will be five of us over three generations. The girls' birthdays are coming up soon and Ella wants some new clothes and shoes.
I hope you have a lovely weekend and don't forget to note those special moments.
