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 #07 - July Tag

Been pondering Timmy's July tag for a while. Needed to change the design to fit my stash and I was rather taken by Maisie Moonshine's use of the butterfly die. I said she led the way for the British version of this month's tag, so I did use the butterfly but side on instead.

Didn't really get to grips with the brayer and distress ink technique but I had a go.

Enjoyed the crackle with the distress ink on the grungeboard though and stamping the seam binding for the tie.

Just HAD to include my new film strip washi tape and my freebie flower stamp from my visit to CraftsULove for their 7th birthday last Saturday.

This is gorgeous BJ, I love the colours and details. I love to see how you adapt Tim's tag tutorials to fit your stash, always so inventive my lovely and you always do his demo justice. Fab job as always.
Huge hugs x

I didn't get to grips with the brayer technique either BJ I think I was a bit heavy handed! I am going to try again though. I love how you altered the butterfly die. Great interpretation.

Your tag is great! I love the border elements along the bottom - they really complete it.

Hi BJ, just back from Hols - which is why I've been AWOL from WOYWW and haven't been blogging. I LOVE your Timmy Tag, the background stamping is beautiful - I think I prefer it in a sympathetic colour rather than black, and the crackle glaze effect shows up really well on your butterfly. That film strip washi tape is gorgeous too! Some useful techniques that I'm sure we'll use again - looking forward to the next one... Hope to see you on Wednesday - although not much crafting going on here at the moment. Hugs MMx
