Hi : It's been a really long time I know. I been traveling, working, and basically just running around getting stuff done. I'm seriously ready to take a breather. I just realized it was only a couple of days till the end of the month and I hadn't even looked at what the Tim Holtz August tag for 2016. So over the weekend I got to work. The techniques were fun to experiment with. Brayered stained was challenging, because I want to color it all. So instead I went sideways instead of up and down. I used distressed ink - wild honey, fossilized amber and picked raspberry. I also used fossilized amber distress paint on my framework pieces. The frameworks part was much easier for me. I love these dies, they are like little puzzles. I hope you all like it.
