12 Journals of 2016 - April!

Hi Everyone

As the temperatures plummet outside I was inside making an April page for my Journal!  Still playing catch up but still having lots of creative fun and I hope you find lots of inspiration in my tutorial.

This page was inspired by Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2016 series.  Each month he takes two techniques from pervious years tags and combines them to make a new tag and inspires so many of us to play along.  I have so many tags now from many years of playing along I am making art journal pages instead and there is a tag in there too!!!

You can see Tim's tag in this shot but you will see in the tutorial that one of my tags made way back in 2012 inspired this page too!  I loved this faux mosaic technique using scraps of patterned paper and I am sure you will too.

Each of my pages has a coordinating tag and each holds a memory.  As I was making this page the faux mosaic reminded me of china tea sets and my love of all things afternoon tea.  I really like making them and am collecting lovely antique china to serve my celebration teas upon.  This photo though is of a cake I would really love to know how to make.  I think my skills are a little way off this standard yet though!

This is the finished page and I love how cheery it looks - it perhaps has a hint of frost about it after all!  We were forecast a little snow this evening but so far only cold and rain.  We even picked up all the leaves and doggy presents in the garden just in case we get to build a snowman!  I guess we only have ourselves to blame if it doesn't snow after all ;-)

Here is the tutorial and I really hope it inspires you to try out the techniques and get creative.  Thank you for popping by X
