Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

TH #7 - July Tag

OK it only just a week since Tim published his July tag but it has felt like an eternity trying to find the time to have a go. I made quite a few attempts at doing the alcohol ink splats and just had to settle for one as I think I'd have been there all day otherwise. I don't think the air thingy I have is strong enough - any suggestions of which one to get? I used my Tower Bridge stamp and together with the colours it reminded me of the Jubilee Pageant down the Thames, so I just had to add "60" as my number. I made my word banner with metal tape on card and my typewriter again and I added a couple of Tim's mini screw brads in the top corners. The ribbon is one I received with a WOYWW ATC swap a few weeks back. Sorry I can't remember from who now, but it went really well with this theme - Thanks.

Love your take on this tag BJ, especially the image of Tower Bridge. Glad you avoided adding the rain on it! You can get a small metal directional tool for blowing through from art supplies shops (got to get one rather than borrowing my dad's!!) Hope this helps. Thanks for your lovely comment, hugs Buttons x

Love the tag. I used the Fellowes air duster, but found that if you held the canister level with the paper then pressed the button you got a better splat, and do it in short bursts.

This is great - love the Tower Bridge image and the pageant idea. It's a great challenge this month as we can use red, white and blue for British celebrations too!

I probably say this every month but I think this month's tag is quite hard! Your splodges look great, especially behind Tower Bridge - great idea of yours to use the pageant for inspiration. Love the way you do your labels on the typewriter too. I haven't even found a straw yet to do mine, might have to venture into a MacDonalds........now there's a thought! Anne x

I like the way you adapted the theme to your own country's celebrations. It's so fitting and a perfect way to commemorate it with a Tim Tag!
