Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016- August

Hello and Welcome Everyone,
Hope you are all going good and enjoying your weekend. Its been a stressful couple of weeks here, but yesterday I finally got to spend  some time in my 'happy place' creating this months Tim Holtz 12Tags of 2016- just the tonic I needed! 

Tim's August tag and tutorial can be found here so be sure to pop over to see and learn from the 'master' himself.
As I have pretty much stuck to Tim's tutorial for this month's technique remix tag- 'Brayered stains and Frameworks,' I have just a few photos to share.
Here they are
The colour palette I have worked with is Wild Honey distress stain( brayered) , Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain distress inks inked with blending tool) . I also used Black Soot distress ink to distress the edges of the tag.

I used paper from the 'Dapper' pad, gold mirror, textile and textured surfaces for the inner pieces of the honeycomb frameworks.
The ideology mirrored star is tinted with Latte Alcohol ink and with my sewing machine back  'in situ' I was able to add some stitching to my tag and of course some of my much loved paint splatters.

and in case you don't fancy scrolling back up again- here is my take on 
Thanks Tim for yet another fabulous tag and monthly dose of creative inspiration- the best medicine anyone could ever wish to be prescribed!

Take care
stay on the 'happy' side
