Monkey Love

Not sure what the infatuation Abbigail had with Monkey's, but she loved them her entire childhood. If truth be known, I think she still does!

For this lay-out I used gesso to first mute the pattern down and then distress paint to bring the background to a nice green. Then I ended up scrubbing the paint off with a baby wipe as it was too dark. Oh well, a work in progress.

Loving texture on my projects this one certainly has a variety of textures. including sewing, modeling paste, stamps, glassine paper, twine and more!

Paper used was a beautiful line from Crate Paper called Open Book. I've induced some of their embellishments as well (tags and brads, which are fabric covered).

I hope you are inspired to create something fun soon!

Tim Holtz Tags 2016- February

Here we go again! Where do the months go?

Using the materials I have to replicate Tim's inspired monthly tag for the Love month <3

See Tim's tag here.

I loved Mr. Jackson 29 years ago (in this photo, my Nursing graduation ball in 1987) and I will love him for 29 more
