12 Tags of 2013- April

Hi ya friends,
Today I'm sharing my tag for this month. I'm so happeeeee that I haven't missed any for this year!
Here's Tim's tag:

Here's mine:
 I was very excited to play with T!m's Distress Paints & his technique for April's tag. Mine didn't marbleize as nicely as his, so I'm going to have to practice some more. I didn't have the stamp set he used so I subbed the dragonfly for the butterflies.

Here's a closer peek:
 OMG! Do you see that?! I actually used tissue tape DECORATIVELY for once!!! Lol! The butterflies were stamped on the clear sheet & then I added some Stickles on top.

Stamps used:
The butterflies came from the Mini-blueprints 2 stamp set
Skyline from City Central Stamp set
Clock from Life's Possibilities Stamp set

I have so much fun getting artsy with the tags each month. It's so freeing to create for the sake of creating. But it's not a smooth process for me- here's how it usually goes...
      I start off stressed out when I see I don't have the particular stamps or embellishments T!m uses. Ugh... Then I look at the technique for the tag & doubt it will come out ok...I tell myself to use what I have & give the technique a try. BE OPEN!!! I completely emerse myself in the process and get artsy! Then I'm usually surprised at how much I like the final result. LOL! Yup, I'm a whackadoodle *Ü*

Thanks for peeking today!
