12 Tags of 2013-September

The calendar may say it's September, but it's still blazing hot here in Florida! We are still approaching 90 degrees every day with our summer cool us off afternoon thundershowers slowly waning away. It's been a wet summer for us, but we needed the rain.

Tim's got a GREAT tag this month! It uses his new layering stencils. I just took a class last night at Whim So Doodle in St Pete with the always fabulous Dina Wakely and got 6 of the I think 10 stencils that are available. So this morning I got inky again after being very inky last night!

I started with Distress Stains in Wild Honey, Peacock Feathers and Peeled Paint and then followed along with Tim's instructions for layering the different stencils. The ones I didn't have that he used, I jsut used others out of my ever growing stach of stencils. And taking a cue from Tim's lead, I punched a hole in all of my stencils this morning and put them on a book ring and will get some cup hooks they next time I am out and hang them where I can access them easily. Then they are out of the way and I'm not bending them up!

I've got a couple of "Manly" birthdays coming up, so I used the new Brett Weldele/Tim collaboration stamp set, The Chemist, for my main image.
