June Tag.

A quick post, as I'm busy with a book commission. Whoop.

A different take on Tim's tag as I didn't have most of the supplies.  

I liked the striped/plaid effect on the tag Tim made, but didn't have that stencil, or the ink pad to customise.  After spritzing the tag with a drop of vintage photo reinker and water using a mister bottle, I used distress pens and a ruler to get the stripes, using a variety of pressures to get the different width lines, and added Wobblieness.

Not having the coffee cup die, I decided to use one of the Artfull Dwellings houses as the centrepiece, and cut a cloud from old packaging using the movers and shapers die, backed with white distress paint.  I wasn't really sure where the tag was going, but searching through my stash for something shiny to replace the star Tim used, I found the little deer charm so that, with the 'live gently' small talk quote (on a Tattered Banner die cut) sort of gave it a theme.  I made the trees from jute threads pulled out of the fabric and a bit of dried moss. 

I gave my jute fabrics an extra long fringe at the top so it sort of looks like grass. 😄
