12 tags of 2015 - August

Hi everyone,

What a cool tag Tim has made for the August one of the 12 tags of 2015! I like the grungy colors. For my tag I wanted happy bright colors, because of the theme of my tag. But also because it's still summer, and want to hold on to it as long as possible...

The picture of the girl with her doll I found on tumblr. Unfortunately I didn't save the link, else I could have shared this picture. The inspiration for this tag is looking back on great memories.
I only have the Christmas word blocks, so I made my own words with the Alpha Thinlits. I was surprised I could make all the words that I wanted in one go. Wow!

The new design tape is perfect for keeping thinlits together. The adhesive isn't too strong and it leaves no residue.I printed the girl with the laser printer on white cardstock. After a layer of Multi Medium Matte, I did some photo tinting.


For the rest, I followed Tim's instruction as far as I had the supplies.

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