12 tags of 2014 - April

Howdy Folks!!
 Hope you've had a chance to get inky and creative over the last little while.. I have my April tag for Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2014 to share with you today.. I love this months tag., its just gorgeous..

 This is my version.. As always I started of with the best of intentions..  but things went a little off course right from the beginning..   When I first started I added in a  stamped layer using Shaded Lilac Distress paint , then followed the rest of Tim's instructions for the background.. I love the extra little bit of colour and texture it gives..

I then spied my new packs of idea-ology Adornments and Elastic loops sitting on my desk and  things just went from there..
This is what I ended up with.. a little different from Tim's, but i'm happy! 
 The photo of cute little girl I've added in is a member of my  family..
I love the colour combo of shaded lilac, tattered rose and walnut stain, with just a hint of manila peeking out from under the tissue tape..
So there you have it, another months tag is finished.. Thank you so much for stoping by,
 hope to see you all again soon.
Happy creating..
