Live in the Moment

Greetings!  It is Memorial Day Weekend here in the United States.  The unofficial kickoff to summer, and an opportunity to pause and remember all of our countrymen and countrywomen who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.  I have been poking around most of May working on my May Tag for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013.  His gorgeous tag is shown below.

This is my first year of playing along with 12 Tags and I must say it has been worth the effort.  Tim really pushes you to try new products and techniques but holds your hand throughout the process with a wonderful tutorial.  

From my perspective, working with Idea-ology Remnat Rubs was new to me.  Love how the inky juiciness of the Distress Inks worked on top of the Rubs.  Finally found my filmstrip ribbon and used the filmstrip ribbon and my Wonder Tape for the first time.  I did not have the enameled tags but used a grunge board key that I painted with Picket Fence Crackle Paint, distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added a ChitChat sticker.  My Classics#5  images arrived during May and I used them on the tag as well.

Thanks for stopping by!  Yvonne
