I expect many of you know about Tim's 12 tags series but if not you can check it out here. I've not used all of the ideas this year and somehow I never seem to have quite the items he's used although I can usually improvise if necessary. The chalkboard technique used on the latest one has taken my fancy so I had a go but instead of using the traditional 'blackboard' colour I've used a very dark purple card and rather than make a tag I've decorated the cover of a journal. I've also incorporated a few of his other techniques from Creative Chemistry. I won't go into details because you can read all about it on his blog but I used one of his blueprint stamps, Distress inks and stains along with various masks/stencils for the background.
