Tim tag for March

12 tags of 2016 - March

This is Tim's tag for this month and I'm just getting in under the wire, so pleased I found a few hours yesterday afternoon to get my one done.

I followed both of the remix techniques but used different dies and found my own design which I actually really like. 

Following Tim's steps - see HERE to see all the details, I created the top layer and used two movers and shapers dies.

Then onto the media layer (see details from Tim's blog HERE) - I had die-cut the tag once but it didn't quite give me enough of the trellis to fit under the top layer, so I turned my tag over and found I could re-cut to extend it further - great find.

Here you can see how much extra trellis I managed to get - it was enough for what I wanted.

I carried on with the process steps using the new distress crayons and oh boy this technique is fabulous.

And then I added the embellishments. This is the best photograph of the tag showing it in it's truest colours and catching some of the brown (yes would you believe brown?) foiling. Having used a small talk saying I altered the wordband to reflect the same colours, black background - archival ink - and white lettering - picket fence distress paint. The photobooth lady was raised on thick foam pads and I used alcohol inks on the mirrored star.

Yay, I got it done and what a fabulous remix - thank's Tim, I just need to pop over and link it up.

I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend, we had a family outing to the local Indian restaurant Friday night, a fairly quiet Saturday, Sunday was the Easter egg hunt in the garden for the girls ....

... with a family meal later and nine of us this time.

Saturday night and most of Sunday storm Katie raged, wrecking her havoc everywhere but we kept up the family tradition of having a BBQ ...

.... but ate indoors, again the family together. So all in all a busy but wonderful time.

See you back here on Friday with two post as A Vintage Journey and Country View Crafts will be starting new challenges.

Enjoy your week.
