Leaves and SOUL....

Okay... another day.. another TAG... and this one was done with Tim's new technique...  using Alcohol Inks... not my favorite due to the smell of it... but I love the results...  so I turned the fan on.. and had some fun..

I am also doing this tag for a few other challenges also... 

First off... Tim's September Tag of 2014...  Alcohol Ink Technique

Sugar Creek Hollow   Tag You're it... 

Kraft Journal...  Anything Goes.. 

A Vintage Journey  To use a flourish of Tim's...  

Inspiration Journal    Fall is in the Air    

So here is my TAG... 

To see all of the Techniques used on this tag, PLEASE go over to Tim's site and see all the pretties that everyone has made... and also check out the techniques... thanks.. you will enjoy the visit... I know that.. 

My background didn't come out the way I wanted it to... so I did it again and again... and finally I liked what I saw.. so I went with it..
I stamped this fall wreath on it... as I had a fun idea... 

I did all the things that Tim asked for ... and here are my leaves...  I did use a lot of colors... but then added some teakwood around the edges... I wanted them darker so that they would look like leaves... 

I had enough paper for 3 and a half leaves.. what ever do you do with half a leaf... oh... you use it... on the edge.. .LOL... I couldn't throw that away... come on...

Some Remnant rubs... and what fun to use them like that...  no thinking ... just used them... love the way it came out too..  a few little birds that I did think thru and cut them apart... and used all over the wreath... 

which I finally colored with my alcohol inks and a solvent pen... 

I took the other leaf... that wasn't oak and used my solvent pen to remove the colors etc... and added a sentiment....
I live in the country ... so I can only image how good it must feel to get into the country...  I love it in the country... 

My final tag...  I really love the whole tag... I forgot to tell you.. I used a tree die cut for the branch... and colored it with my solution pen and inks too... 
So.. I couldn't stop there... I had to make another one too... so you will just have to look for that one too.. 
I hope to post it now... but I am getting really sleepy... and it might not happen until tomorrow... have to see... LOL.. 
Thank You so very much for stopping by for a visit.. I really appreciate your time spent looking at my art... I love creating and love to hear your comments on the direction I am moving...
I cherish each and every one of them... and take them to heart... 
Hope you have a wonderful day... evening or time where you are now...  enjoy every minute of it..
Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
