Tim's July Tag of 2015

Happy Friday to all of you! I just made it in time to join in Tim's July tag of 2015 and this may be the first time I have slid in on the last day! Honestly, I have just not had time and it takes so much to motivate me lately, but I did it!!!
I will not bore you with all the details as he does a really good job of that! Here are the Distress Markers I used and blue print stamps. Pumice Stone was used for the shading on the image. I cut my paper from the Destinations stash and the Distress Inks I used for the final watercolor shading are Peeled Paint and Brushed Corduroy.
Now years ago I purchased a product from Judikins called Micro Glaze and I have it somewhere, but have no idea where and figured my local stores would not have Tim's version, so I improvised. Yup, I used regular Vaseline and pounced in on with my finger and then placed a paper towel over to lift off the excess. After I was done watercoloring, I rubbed off any excess. Hey you got to do what you got to do at times to play along!

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Such a fabulous take on Tims tag ! Terry I love your choice of blueprints and the subtleness of your colour palette . Great improvisation using vaseline in place of the Micro glaze - a sign that ya a 'real' crafter . So pleased ya made it in time as imho its winner worthy . x

OH..yes I remember the "Old"' Vaseline trick! Smart Move! Glad to see you did get a tag in for Tim's Tags this month. I was getting worried that you wouldn't make it.... We are looking at Homes in Green Bay..
Have a Great Weekend.

Hi Terry! I think I posted something on Facebook about this but I wanted to hop by your blog and leave a comment as well. I really love your take on Tim's July tag. Love the coloring and the blueprint stamps you chose to use. I also love the little touches of ideology that you added to the tag. Your artwork is always so nicely done… Fresh and clean and different. Love it!!!

Love your take on Tim's tag Terry, wonderful colour palette and love the blueprint stamps you used. Vaseline was a great idea to protect your stamps, I used bees wax on mine but the Vaseline probably would have worked much better! Deb xo

You selected the most perfect colours and tones as there is a lovely subtle quality but at the same time they somehow bring to mind canvas bags and leather cases and also desert lands and the ocean. A fabulous tag.
