Youhoo !! Hi, Hello there, G'day Bonjour, Gutentag, Ciao, Hola,
How is everyone on this fine (well I hope it is where you are) Bank holiday Monday? enjoying doing something you like, I hope.
Ok so that's the pleasantries out of the way, now down to business!
I am listening to Glen Campbell while I sit here playing on my blog, I would insert a smiley face here if I only knew how :-) best I can do lol.
As you can see I have managed to make this months T!m tag, pretty much as per his instructions here.
I used the oval frame from the Tag and Book plates die and used the same technique as T!m used on January's Pocket Watch Tag,
I liked how it turned out but it did seem to take up more space on the tag and I was limited then on how many embellishments I could fit on. I didn't have T!ms wallflower paper stack so used Docrafts Madame Payrauds paper line and shock horror you will no doubt have spotted the imposter trying to blend in as a bona fide T!m trinket, yep the heart wings lol, in my defence they were just the right size and hey I like them ! I used Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord and edged with Frayed Burlap DI though in the photo's my tag looks very pink. Love the new shadow press de-bossing folders, you get a great look and there are some fab words.
I have just spotted in my photo's that the trinket pin is missing from the top of the tag, all I can say is that it refused point blank to be seen on the same tag as "the imposter" and muttered something about did I not know about it's famous lineage, or maybe it's just because I forgot!!
So, overall I enjoyed making T!m's May tag, it was a little bit fiddly and I can't tell you how many times I moved everything round trying to find the right place for each piece but I suppose there isn't really a right or wrong way and I'm fairly happy with the end result so it's all good and I'm looking forward to the next one.
I'm now off to see if I can upload it over at T!m's place and have a shufty at everybody else's masterpieces. Glen has packed his guitar away and is heading off back to the homestead so I will say ta ta for now. Take care and
Happy Art making
