Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2012

November - Autumn Greetings

Took some time to play yesterday and completed my November Tag for Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2012.  Had to wait until today, so that I could photograph it in the daytime.  I don't have the Autumn Gatherings Die so I substituted with the Tattered Floral Garland.

I decided to use a bit of dried floral instead of a muse token and burlap.  I think I may go back and hang something from the top of it...but haven't figured out what yet.

For all my friends here in the United States, I want to wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Mixed Media Mondays

Art Journal

On Monday nights  after Boy Scouts I like to come home and join Tracy Weinzapfel and friends in a chat called Mixed Media Mondays.  Tracy always does a journal page LIVE on-line during the chat, and most of the time I dabble in my art journal at the same time.  Some times I follow along with her theme and other times my muse leads me in a different direction. 
Here are a couple more pages from my journal I'd like to share.  The background is created with Gelatos by Faber Castell.  You can find out more about them at Design Memory Craft.  They are soft and creamy and the colors are super rich.  I just love working with them!
For these pages I also have used rub-on, Copic markers, rubber stamps and oil pastels. 
If it is within reach it is fair game.
Well...enjoy!! I'm headed off to work!!
Be Such...
Heart and Soul
