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!
