12 Journals of 2016 - February

Hi Everyone

I can't believe I taped this tutorial ages ago and am only just remembering to post about it now!  I almost missed the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 challenge!  Better late than never though!

Tim mixed two different techniques for this months tag and it was fun revisiting embossing with texture paste and mono printing with your stencils.

As you may know I am making Journal pages based on Tim's monthly tags this year and I can't wait to see how the journal builds as the months go by.  So this months page looks like this:

One of Tim's techniques was all about creating texture with embossing paste and embossing powder and that is what lead me to make all the hearts with all the different textures.  You will see from the tutorial how I started my journey and how the ideas progressed to create the final page.

Each month I will also take inspiration from something that month brings to mind - this month of course it is all about romance and valentines!  I wrote a poem to my hubby who I have been sharing Valentines day with for over 30 years now.

Some months I may be inspired by something that has happened in that month and I will create a tag to document that and on the reverse there is, of course, a photo of Tim's tag that inspired the page in the first place.

I really hope that I inspire you to play along with everyone over at Tim's blog and to remember you don't have to create tags!

If you click on the 12 Journals of 2016 category in my Labels list on the left-hand sidebar you will see all the other pages as we make our way through the year.
