My take on Tim's tag for April 2016 - I'm happiest when I am with you

Well I had most of this tag done fairly early and then Easter holidays and the finishing bits just didn't seem to happen...but there done now..

I have to say , despite loving the mosaic effect, the kit had sat new and unloved , until now...so I am pleased to be spurred on to open it and play... I have followed the techniques from the master himself, but have changed some elements...

So without further ado here is my take and Tim's can be found here :

I chose coordinating papers for the heart in soft neutrals and a hint of blue/grey...

I added some twists of rusty wire ...just love the stuff, some co-ordinating seam binding and some personal touches ....the sentiment reads I'm happiest when I am with you and I added the number 20 for the date I married my wonderful husband... I know how soppy ...but all my pieces seem to be having words , a word or some personal,message at the moment...

I added little staple kisses...and have to say I loved the background technique for this one....I had to adapt slightly as my brayer seems to be in a VERY safe place, you know so safe , even I couldn't find it!

So I will be adding this to Tim's tags link up and hope to be back really soon with something else...you never know!

thanks to everyone , who is popping by despite my sporadic posts and comments....I appreciate it so much x

keep those fingers inky!
