Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

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
