May 12 tags of 2014

Happy Saturday! I cant believe its May already. The ,months have been flying by. I have my version of Tim Holtz's May 12 tags of 2014 to share with you today.

I did mine a little different, I didn't use a tag this time. As soon as I saw Tim's Tag I knew exactly how I wanted to do my version.  I've used a 6 x 4 canvas that I've  covered in linen, and I've used Wallflower paper for my tiles as well.



After lots of re-arranging I finally was happy with the layout and embellishments I chose.. Here is my finished panel.
 
 
I've used a photo of my Dad when he was little.. and
 also used some remnant rubs, rubbed onto old clear packaging and cut out for some elements on some of my tiles.  As well as lots of bits and pieces from my Idea-ology stash.. I just love the  label pulls and arrows!
 
 

 
So there you have it. My version. I cant believe I was actually organised enough to get it done so early in the month.  Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your visit. Hope you have a wonderful day, Happy Creating

  3. As always Karen your work is inspirational and so clean line in its simplicity but has a depth and warmth of style only you can produce! You should take a curtsy by friend as this is phenomenal xxx
