February Art Jornal page

In January I decided I was going to use Tim's 12 Tags of 2013 as inspiration for my art journal pages. I am coming in at the very last minute here, but I have completes my February pages.

As I said my pages are based on Tim's February 12 Tags of 2013. The background of the page is done exactly how he shows using the stains. I also added some background stamping using the mixed Media Stamp set and a white paint dabber.

I did not have the stamp he used so instead I pulled out a some of my Dylusion's Stamps that I have neglected. The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show is to use a stamp that you love, but don't use. I really love the face from the Bits of This Dylusion Stamp set and knew that this would be perfect for the challenge. I added a crown to her with the Doodle Parts Stamp set. Both of these are colored with Distress Markers.

To finish the pages off I added some embossed Kraft core cardstock, Tissue Tape, Twine, another background stamp from Dylusions and the stamped saying from Tim Holtz.
I only had about an hour to complete the pages and was very happy with how they came out in a short amount of time. Hope you enjoyed them as well. Thank you for stopping by!


  1. Fabulous idea to use Tim's tags as inspiration for your journal pages. Love the red in this piece, fabulous background and I love the Dylusions image. Thanks so much for joining in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. Tracy x
