12 Tags of 2015 November

Hello and welcome,

Well I can't believe it.......I have been crafting ALL day today and I feel amazing, OK I think I may have hurt my lower back again but it was all worth it. lol. Awe I think I need a hot water bottle, actually better still better book a massage in tomorrow. I will be absolutely fine.

I have had a blast completing my TIM Tag, there are no progress photos as I was totally lost in the moment.
Originally I thought I would create a tag about writing down your memories, then I took my rub-ons out and saw the word Paris so I thought why not make this about all the wonderful people that have so sadly lost they're lives in Paris. No-one can take precious memories away from you and that's what I hope the friends and families of the fallen can focus on, and the good times they had together. Our hearts and thoughts go out to every-one in France. xxxxx

Spray Stains:Frayed Burlap/Ground Espresso
Paint: Antique Linen
Thinlits Die: Happy Holidays
Stamps: Paris to London/Typography
Archival Ink: Jet Black
Gold Leaf Foil
Sticky Dots/Glossy Accents?Scissors/Manilla Tag/Water Color Paper/UHU Glue/Tims mini Brads
To color the hand I used  a water brush  and the Distress Ink Pads Faded Jeans, Pumice Stone, Antique Linen and a little Black Soot Distress Marker.
I added Glossy Accents to the pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Stay Safe every-one.
