Lisa’s Look at Tim’s Tag for April 2016

April16Tag10I enjoyed recreating Tim’s tag this month. I love the mosaic tile look and have several pieces in my garden.  I did not have the mosaic kit available so I created my grout or base.

I used Opaque Texture Paste and a little sand which I mixed until it looked like the right consistency (I guess I was influenced by my dad and grandpa who both did a lot of concrete work).

Then I spread it on my chipboard shapes.

After the grout dried I added bits of colored paper with Multi Medium Matte.

Then I added Glossy Accent to the top of each piece. Just love how the butterfly turned out.

While everything was drying I work on the tag itself.

I used Gathered Twigs Distress Spray for the background tag.

I embossed the top with a floral embossing folder.

I embellished it with some Chit Chat stickers, a piece of film strip and some metal flowers.

Looking forward to next months tag.
