Tim's April Tag!

Today it is very windy here and they have warnings about it!  We can get 80 MPH winds and those are dangerous as power poles and trees have been know to give was.   Why am I telling you this, I don't know, but could be because I just thought the door might blow open from a big burst of wind!  Now that I have gotten that out of my system, how about sharing Tim's April 2013 Tag, which will also go for a visit at Unruly PaperArts for "RAQ 2 Gears." 
Followed Tim's instructions as much as I could, but the IMPROVISING took place with the Distress paints as I only have two and none were Metallics.  Pulled out the Distress Stains and Metallic Stains to mix up as well.  I just played until I was somewhat happy!  Could not get the background effect, but can live with what I did!  This tag with be for my Grandson's #22 coming up at the end of April. 
Used Tim's Mini Blueprint and Tiny Things for my tag.  The world and compass was stamped on plastic packaging as again, I did not have the special product!  Added a piece of filmstrip over the postage airplane, which I wished later I had stamped in black as the sepia ink does not show up that well via camera! 
My number was a piece of grunge board that I played with paints and stains until I thought it was close to Tim's.  The metal embellishments were also treated with the paint and stain mix!  Fun tag and always a challenge to come up with the end project with a lack of product!!!! 
A little excitement to share!  I made TOP 3 at Simon Says stamp and show for this AO Canvas!
And TOP 3 at SanDee & Amelie's Steampunk Challenge for this Cuckoo Clock
I just was going to go and pick up the mail and I saw the entire air was brown!  It is so windy here and dirt is making visibility very bad!  No, I left the mail, but here is a picture of what would have been a blue sky day!  I took this out my craft room window!
Sorry, I was so photo heavy!  Hope you are having a great week and with a little less dirt blowing in the air.  I know at least one of my blogger friends is probably dealing with the same conditions!  Thank you for visiting today!

congrats on your wins! I'm with you Terry--I don't have a lot of the chosen products for this particular tag but I'm going to mix and match it up too. I could only hope to come up with something as stunning as yours. It is perfect for the Unruly Paper Arts challenge--so happy you are entering it there.
