12 tags of 2014 - July

Hi everyone,

Have you seen the July tag of the 12 tags of 2014? I think it's a beauty! That seahorse is really cool. Unfortunately I don't have that die and have therefore chosen a different theme, a summery day in Paris!

That sand technique Tim did, is so cool!And I wanted to try it too. It was a bit of fiddling with the wet sand, but I think it turned out okay. The sand has a bit of a different color, but oh well, there are so many different colors of sand. Despite it's made with Glossy Accents and adhered wiht it, it still crumbles off very easy. Need to come up with something that will hold it in place better.


The Eiffel Tower I painted with Weathered Wood and Brushed Pewter Distress Paint. After sanding it, I've worked with Black Soot Distress Ink. Since it came in contact with Rock Candy Crackle Paint the color became a bit darker. But I like that.

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Sandra this is a clever and stunning take on Tim's July tag! I love how you used the Eiffel Tower and added the pretty flowers near the sandy ground! Love it!

That's a clever twist on Tim's tag Sandra. Love the way you've altered the Eiffel Tower. Jenny x

Aha! I guess you know all about "Paris Plage" when they turn a strip of the seine embankment into a beach then? Great take on the July tag :-)
