I so love this ... I chose a vintage look my friend Paula Cheney had a tutorial last week on colorizing pearls ... it was the boom ! I don't want to get into trouble... Soooooooooo I'll just say I had loads of fun. I did not have all the supplies I thought I had so I went with what I had... so pleased with the results.

Sure hope you can see my details... THIS WAS A CHALLENGE ! Not feeling well and antibiotics kicked in while I was working... talk about stressing :) . Anyway I have share photos ( photographer I am not ... especially not right now. I chose to do this ... so I must complete it ... I will not be defeated.
I so enjoyed the process. I'm so thankful I have Tim's other two compendiums ; I had to consult it ... I could not remember how to do the tissue tape on my configuration ( don't know if it was the meds or forgetfulness... hahaha ) ... ANYWAY I had the resources !
Happy Friday !

P.S. In my haste to get this posted I forgot to share with you what I used... I used  Tim Holtz  Merriment Paper Stash , Merriment Tissue Tape and a 6.75" x 8.75" Configurations.
Ideology  ring fastener,  baubles, Christmas muse token, mirrored stars, corners, curio knob , Christmas word band and Christmas tidings tokens. Oh and of course woodland tree !
Okay ... I'm off to clean up so cats don't get my stuff ... then off to bed ... antibiotic is messin' with me :(  ... See You later !
