Tim's tag for July at CVC

What's on my desk?

Although Tim's tag was inspired by the US celebrations for the 4th July I originally wanted to keep to the red. white and blue theme and make a UK patriotic tag but it didn't work out. So I went a bit more vintage.

Using mini blueprints 4 I chose the vintage desk items and followed Tim's directions to colour up and make the tag stamping onto watercolour paper and using distress markers and a water brush to colour them in.

I applied micro glaze like Tim shows us, it does a brilliant job of sealing the distress inks and I love the distressed effects that can be achieved when you paint inks over it.

My design changes here with the addition of remnant rubs and ideaology.

I will link you to Tim's blog where you will be able to see his patriotic version and all the process steps that you can follow if you want to join in his monthly tag contributions.

Thanks for popping in today.
