Tim's May 2015 Tag at A Vintage Journey


Hi Everyone and a warm welcome to my new followers. Today over at A Vintage Journey is Tag Friday, where some of us on the Design Team share a tag, so do pop over HERE to see all the fab creations.


I am sharing with you all today my tag for Tim's tags of 2015. I kept more or less to what Tim explained in the tutorial improvising on products I didn't have.


I used DCWV Gauze Paper for my background. My heart stencil had a mix of Salty Ocean and Cracked Pistachio added to it with a touch of Decoart Titan Buff to soften the colours slightly. I added a little painted frame on top of my photo with a tiny key.


My flowers were made using a Cheery Lynn Flower die and my ribbon a torn piece of cotton spritz with stain. Cracked Pistachio, Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass. My little shabby heart had a Rub on added onto it.


You still have a few days left to join in our Current Challenge Spring Colours, where you can win a £20 shopping spree at CountryViewCrafts.

Thanks for all your comments and wishes for Simba last week. He is finally getting stronger and eating a lot better now, which is so lovely to see. I'm sure it's true when they say a cat has nine lives !

  6. Wooow, woow, woow, Julie, I like your fantastic tag more than original one! What a clever idea to use that gauze paper rather than burlap and to use a torn piece of cotton instead of crinkle ribbon! LOVE it!
