I did it...just in the nick of time :)
I finished my Tag for August.
If you have been following me, then you know that I have been trying to do all of Tim Holtz monthly tags.
I have done them all, but one month I was a bit late.
For this month Tim was focusing on layered masks, stamps and his distress stain.
I only used 1 out of his 3.
I wanted to focus on his travel theme.
If you know me then you know i love my road trips.
As I lay my head against my pillow last night, thinking of my tag the first thing I thought of was to use an old map for the background.
I used a brown tag for the background and cut the map a tad smaller then the tag.
I used some stickers for the word "Road Trip" and the charm is attached with a fishing swivel.
I cut down a hotel card envelope and added alcohol ink to the actual card key.
If you look close you can see I punched the ticket coupon with today's date ;)
I stamped this old car. It was the closest stamp I had that was close enough to the look of my jeep. Yeah, its a stretch I know ;)
I came across this flair button with a map on it, and thought it pretty cool and added a bit of colour to the tag.
Before I could work on my tag, I had to clean off my desk.
Scary isn't it, lol.
I haven't created down in my craft room for many months. I have been creating at the cottage or upstairs, so my desk has become a dumping ground.
The reason the table cloth is on there is for when I take photos of my projects. I just cover all the nastiness and snap away, lol.
But believe me my desk is all tidy again.....can't say the same for the floor though ;)
I don't want you to go away with that messy desk burnt into your eyes, so here is another look at my tag.
I am happy to say that this tag turned out just how I had planned. And we all know that doesn't happen very often.
Well we are off to the cottage for this long weekend.
I am bringing as much creative supplies as last weekend as I hear it is suppose to rain a lot :(
Hope you all have a creative day and a wonderful weekend. You know I will be posting over the weekend, as I don't think I have missed a day posting since I had started my blog over 3 yrs ago.
