My Tim's tag for January 2015

Well it has been a while.....but here I am dipping my toe gently back into blogland...
I so missed not being part of Tim's tags as I love the inspiration and the fact that I learn, play create and try stuff I  may not have tried otherwise...some more successfully than others but thats the fun!
There are no details for this as all the details can be found here from the man himself... although I am rather late to the party this month.. but better late than never!
So here is my version of Tim's tag for January :

And some close ups of some of the detail...I did change a few details to suit more me colours but essentially followed the details of Tim's tags .

I had great fun choosing words that meant something to me and my family for the 5 of us ..

I chose to go for a bluey crinkle seam binding bow as I love these colours ...
and love the splatter effect...I think the splatter brush is one of my all time favourite purchases..it just gives pieces that extra something!

I chose to add 5, together and of course a yummy arrow , but added mine at the bottom.

I chose to use silver distress glitter...I love working through these tags there is always a little gem to learn!

So thats it for my first blogging dabble in a while...
hope to see you again real soon as I have been having a play with Decoart and having lots of fun...hope to have a piece finished soon . 
If you have found the time to visit thanks so much I appreciate it and will do my best to return the visit x
until next time..
keep those fingers inky and painty
and those hearts full xx
