12 Tags of 2014 – May

Published May 31, 2014 by isisimaginings

Morning all, nothing like leaving it to – almost – the very last minute. Here’s my take on Tim’s May tag, which you can see here. Tim challenged us to use those metal embellishments that we’ve been saving for that ‘special occasion’. I love the simplicity of his tag, with every element perfectly balanced. Not sure I’ve achieved that balance, but I like what I’ve done.




I used a canvas board & kept the background simple, using Fresco paints – Vintage Lace, Mocha Mousse, Chocolate Pudding, French Roast, Little Black Dress. I finished the background with splatters of Tarnished Brass distress stain mixed with water.




The embellishments are on pieces of Thorndon Hall paper from PaperArtsy, with a TH key, frame, vial label & rub on.  Each piece has  significance for me & the  word ‘create’ is a Chocolate Baroque stamp.



Thanks once again to Tim for the inspiration. Nice to know that we’ve only got to wait ‘til tomorrow now for your June tag. Smile

Thanks for looking, I’m hoping I’ll get time to make something either today or tomorrow for this week’s PaperArtsy challenge………….
