Hello, here’s my ‘tag’ for Tim’s January tag. I made it weeks ago, but knew my 300th blog post was coming up so I held it over until now. Tim started the new year in spectacular style with his tag & I wanted mine to be the same, except that I decided to use a canvas board as the base.
I painted the board with Sage & Irish Cream fresco paints, then added Brushed Corduroy distress stain.
The board is wider that a tag so I used a second stencil to fill in gaps.
I had been to The Artistic Stamper earlier in the month & the TH pocket watch die was on sale, so I had to have it. I don’t have any of the TH movers & shapers dies, but this Spellbinders die was a perfect fit.
And here’s the finished board. I added some stamping with a PaprArtsy mini script stamp. The quote on the journal ticket is from ‘A Tale for the Time Bring’ by Ruth Ozeki – a book I highly recommend.
In other news, I apparently have the ‘flu. Yesterday I thought it was just a cold, but I was so ill today (reminded me of how I felt after chemotherapy sessions) that I rang my GP’s advice line & was told that yes, it sounds very much like the ‘flu. Great. I hope it clears up quickly.
Thanks for looking & to Tim for the inspiration. See you next time.
