12 tags of 2012 - June

I had a marvelous morning at a shop in Parklands called Basset Stationers and The Scrap Studio where I did a demo for 2, no nearly 3 hours for a wonderful bunch of very interested ladies.  Only I was so busy chatting, showing and explaining that I quite forgot to take out my camera and get a few shots of everyone...That's what happens when I am having fun...

On to today's tag, well yesterdays tag really, but I was sleeping by the time Tim posted his tag with instructions so I only got to give it a go this evening , between cutting kids hair, making supper and general home activities.

I don't have any of those fabric flowers, but I have been on a convention recently where we got a whole lot of Tim stash that we were supposed to use on our page, but me, being me, changed the page and did not use all of it, and guess what?  I needed it for this tag...see, I knew there was a reason why I kept it, not just cos it was nice and I am "shnoep" (stingy - for those who don't speak South African) and wanted to spread it out over a few pages...I also used the Graphic 45 flower which we got and I bent it up to make it more dimensional and added some silk leaves from some fake flowers I have taken apart.  In other words, I have done a reverse of Tim's flower...

I also don't have any of those special nibs for the photo colouring, though I did look at them the other day and decided I didn't need them, how wrong I was, but I made do with Distress Markers in Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade and Distress Stain in Antique Linen which all worked just as well as what Tim did in the video.  Oh and I didn't make the tag as suggested, I used some of Tim's yummy packaging from the word keys instead.

As usual I have not suck to the tag rigidly, but done my own thing...that's what this is all about, changing it up to suit yourself! Learn and experiment.

Thanks for the visit
