12 Tags of 2013 - August

Welcome back...to me that is! I've been on hiatus far too long. Thank you to those who have emailed, spurring me along to get back to business, and thank you to the new followers as well. I whole heartedly appreciate you!
Here is my August tag for Tim's 12 Tags of 2013. I loved his simple masking technique, and all four of his tags were wonderful. 
I had all of the images he used, but I hadn't used three of the four seen above, so I thought it would be fun to incorporate all of them on a #10 sized jumbo tag. There are several mistakes though, seen in hindsight, due mostly to being out of commission, but that is always part of the learning process. However, the pictures are not doing this tag much justice. It's a little hard to tell, but the children in the middle are sitting on Dyan's mushrooms.
I followed all the steps, only using different images and colors of Stains and Markers.
 Supplies:


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!

  42. Another fun tag! Super masking technique and I could tell those children were sitting on mushrooms! When I come to see what you have made I scrutinize your creation (in the nicest possible way, lol) to see if I can figure out how you made it and what you made it with. Good to have you back so we can see what you've been doing. Always fun!!
