I thought I would get my tags done early this year….not, lol.
Here is my tag for April from Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014
I am trying to get more colours into my tags for this year.
As much as I like the vintage/grunge look, it seems to be my safe choice.
I love colour…pretty colours make me happy. So I find it odd that the brown vintage look is what I seem to do more of.
So I am making it a point to use more colour on my projects this year :)
I don't have the die that Tim used. But I wish I did, I love the look of that die.
I used some embossing paste. I had never used this before, but really like it.
I usually use dry wall compound, which works just as well, in my opinion.
I coloured some paper with distress paint, stamped the butterflies and then cut them out. I also popped them up on foam dots.
The flower and leaves are also pained with the distress paints on white paper and then punched out.
The pink rolled rose is another one from Lesli's flower kit she had.
She left it on my table, so I nabbed it and it goes perfectly with my tag ;)
The blue flower was made with this butterfly punch ;)
I punched out the bottom of the butterfly 3 times and then adhered them in a circle.
I have to say, I was pretty impressed with myself on this one, lol.
Again here is the finished tag.
I had fun with this one…even though I was on a tight timeline.
I also made a video on how I put this tag together.

I hope you had a very creative Tuesday :)
