12 Tags of 2014 May Tag

Hi everybody ! Guess what... I've got my May tag done  and it's only May 9th... What ??!
I can't believe it ... I'm on a roll here! :)  I did the CC3 Challenge earlier in the week.
Oh my goodness... Tim referred to this tag as a "creative composition" assignment . Well named... we used a collection of trinkets and embellishments ; some of which I had used others I just had in my stash "to cherish and admire" ... hahaha ... Tim was looking at my stash when he said this ( I'm sure of it :) ).

For my background I had done an extra marble painting background and was so happy with it I decided to use it for this tag. I used evergreen bough, wild honey and peeled paint distressing paints.
I so love this combination ( that's why I had an extra one ... I got carried away playing).
We created tiles using the new wallflower paper stash... love these papers.
He used his new shadow press debossing folders... oh my ... this was so cool to do ... I felt intimidated  reading the instructions but I was amazed at how easy it was to do...absolutely love the look !

I used beautiful... it was beautiful !!! I did not have the same vial labels Tim had (bummer... I dug in my stash... I could not believe I did not have that set); mine were too big so I used a red bling to highlight my Wish rub on.  You must see his tag  http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2014-may/ ; it's so awesome. Love how he creates these. I think this was a brilliant idea. This tag showcases so many of his cool embellishments. It was a little tedious ( I have nails ... not real long but enough to get in the way) to work with these tiny tiles and embellishments ; but so fun watching each tile take shape.  I love that linen ribbon too  ... OMG it is so cool; distressing it  and stretching it out made it even cooler !

I really enjoyed  doing this tag ... it took me to my happy place. It's so amazing how  an eclectic mix of elements can be such an artful piece. Thank you Tim for another amazing tag !
I do hope all of you go and check out the other tags too! Maybe you'll be inspired to join our journey!
See you next week ... gotta keep up with CC3 Challenge next challenge comes tomorrow night... can't
wait to see what it will be !
