Tag Book

Thank you for your good wishes following my accident - I'm on the mend though I've been "reassured" I'll take months to heal and so, for the foreseeable future I'm crafting one handed! For my first project back I wanted to make a tag book and this is it! Each page is coloured with Dylusions Inks and stencils with a mixture of Dylusion, Tim HoltzWendy Vecchi and JoFy stamps. I apologise that there's a few photos... I couldn't decide what I could leave out!
January, March, May
Each page is edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink so there is a complementary feel as you look through the book.
February, April, June
The month name and phrases are typed on my laptop and printed out, before being edged in Vintage Photo.
July, September, November
To colour in the under sea animals I used water brushes filled with Dylusions Inks.
August, October, December
For the cover I used Tim Holtz Idea-Ology and Wendy Vecchi Art Parts which take Dylusions Inks beautifully! The binder is wonderful Ruler Binder kit with a little Vintage Photo ink added to knock back the 'just out of the packaging' look!
I hope you like my tag book and that you feel inspired to have a go yourself - if you add a quotation or saying you could enter it into this month's Country View Crafts challenge... Just saying! Oh! To prempt the question which are my favourite pages...!!!
