Inspiration Wednesday - Week 16

I'm playing catch up this weekend with my blog posts and my art.  Finally got to do lesson 16 from Donna.  I wasn't so sure about these pages when I started since I totally skipped trying the bubble technique. I loved using both the positive and negative of my stencils, and just kept adding layers until they became something I liked. The negative flower is my favorite.

Tim Holtz Tags of 2016 - August

Every year my goal is make the time, no matter how busy I am, to complete my "Tim Tag".  August was one of those busy months, but I did manage to get my tag done.  I would have liked to have had more time to devote to this one, but part of my challenge is to accept that all tags are not created equal, and I'll like some more than others.  Hope you enjoy.

Thanks Tim! I'm looking forward to September.
