12 Tags of 2015 - February

Hi everyone,

Well the cold I mention in this month's tag tutorial has materialised!  I am feeling rough and topping up on the lemsip as I type!  I hate lemsip but it does the trick.  I need to feel a bit better as I am venturing out into the  cold to watch Callum play rugby in a bit!  Brrrrr.  I have my thermals on so I should be ok for the match!

Before I go just wanted to link up with Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015.  Here is my February tag.

I am in love with this paper collage background technique!  A great way to use up paper scraps and it looks soooooo pretty!

I also made my little 3" square in the same style and I am looking forward to seeing how the finished sampler turns out at the end of the year.  I am repeating a couple of elements in each square so they look like they belong together.  I am adding the date and a stitched border with my usual mat and layered frame.

……..before I don my coat and scarf here is the link to the video tutorial where you can see how I got from Tim's inspiration to my interpretation in the month of February!  Click on the link to check out all the lovely February tags over on Tim's Blog.

Hope you are having a fab weekend.  Thank you for popping by X
