12 Tags of 2016 - August

Well, it's hard to believe that August has come and gone so quickly.  We took a family trip to Alaska at the end of July into the first week in August, then a quick turn-a-round trip to Las Vegas where my son was married at the Chapel in the Clouds at the top of the Stratosphere.  So I decided to use the wedding as my theme for the Tim Holtz-12 Tags of 2016-August Challenge.

The wedding colors were red, black, and white...the wedding party wore black Converse tennis shoes (even the bridesmaids in their red dresses) and the bride and groom wore red Converse tennis shoes. I originally wanted to use light gray for my background, but found I didn't have any gray my red background looks slightly pink!

The Technique Remix challenge this month was to use a brayered stain background and a frameworks technique with various textures inside the die cut frame.  I reached way back into my stash (about 12 years maybe?) to use the metal tag about marriage...I knew I'd find the perfect use for it one day ( #craft hoarder!)

Anyhow, thanks, as always, for stopping by!  Reading your comments makes my day!


  1. What a Fantastic summer! LOVE the entwined hearts and the honeycomb! We were just in Vegas for a meeting so I wonder if one of the weddings we saw was your son's???!!!

  2. I enjoyed hearing the story behind your creation. The dusty pink background was kismet (glad you didn't have the gray) because I think it works perfectly and provides an interesting contrast and makes the details of the tag stand out better. Love the simplicity of it and the sentiment.
