Hello, hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that all you Mom's out there got spoiled rotten, you certainly deserve it! I was hoping to be able to show you the card I made for my Mom today but good ol' Canada Post has mucked up delivering my parcel to her, so she still hasn't received it, grrrr! With any luck she will get it either later today or tomorrow and I'll be able to post my pictures to share with you then.
So in the meantime, I thought I'd show you the updates I've made to my 12 Tags of 2015 mini album I made to house all my Tim Holtz inspired tags. I've been finishing the pages as I've made the tags so here are the March and April pages completed.
For the March page, I added the mask I made to protect my bird stamp (from the Stampers Anonymous Classic #16 set) from the texture paste and embossing powder that was used on the March tag. The words I added reflected the trepidation I felt while making the March tag as all those bright colours had me quite terrified!
For the April page, I used the offcuts from the 'Explore Life' die I cut on the April tag and then added some words and images to echo the sentiment. I also added some pen stitching around the edge of the page to represent the real stitching used on the tag and water coloured the truck and the 'Admit One' ticket stamps (both from the Tim Holtz Visual Artistry Clear Stamp 'The Journey' set) since that was one of the techniques that was used on Tim's April tag too.
It's so much fun to do each page as the tags are made and I can't wait to see the album completed come December. It will be great to be able to review the whole year and revisit Tim's techniques and the tags I made for the 12 Tags of 2015 challenge. Thanks again to Astrid for this wonderful idea!
Have a lovely day everyone, it's beautiful and warm here again today so time to get out into the garden and try and tame some of the weeds that are sprouting up like ... well ... weeds! Hope to be able to share the gift I made for my Mom with you tomorrow and until then happy creating!
