Yay! The weekend is almost here:)
It has been a good few days of creative play. Using inspiration from the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014, Follow Your Muse August tag and Mixed Media Mojo August Challenge: Mixed Media Tag, generated lots of fun playtime! Come play along, there is still lots of time!

I followed Tim's technique, starting with a plain manila tag that I cut from a manila folder. I like to economize and upcycle as I can so I can buy the good stuff like paints:) I love the filmstrip Washi tape so I added 2 strips. Then I added the cityscape stamp and then stamped it again above the first impression without re-inking with Jet Black Archival. The did the same with the wonderful balloon stamp.
After stamping I added some texture paste using the Harlequin stencil, love that one too! I added stars too, stars and diamonds, must haves!
I added these photos of the tag backlit. I am sooo in love with the glow it has. It really shows off the awesome qualities and layers of Distress Stains. To me it adds so much to the dreamy nature of the imagery.
I hope you like the tag, if you have the time, I appreciate all comments<3
