Letter T

This week is the letter T, 
so I chose Travel.

I decided to do a vintage style tag 
and to use the Tim Holtz 

Paper Distresser Tool that I had bought 

ages ago and had not as yet used. 

(Bad I know! And at time I really needed it) :)

I really love the Distresser Tool. It's really easy to use 
and yet can give some really effective finishes
I distressed the edge of the tag with it and loved the way it 
gives a kind of roll up edge to the distress finished. 
I then run a thick layer of bronze acrylic paint 
along the edge with my finger to try and 
highlight the effect. 
This tool I can see being used a lot now :). 
It's simple yet effective. 

I love hot air balloon's and was lucky enough 
to go up in one for my 21st Birthday (thanks to mum and dad)
These images reminded me of that special trip 
and so have been looking forward to using them.  :)

I'm a bit behind this week 
so am off to see what you guys 
have all been up to with your letter T tag's.
Have a good weekend.



  1. You have pulled out all the stops here Jules and it worked. The colours are gorgeous and all the elements blend beautifully. Telling a story in such a little tag is a real art.

  2. Beautiful tag, love the worn-look! Valerie

  3. Very impressive as usual!

  4. I LOVE the Steampunk feel of your tag design! Tim Holtz tools are some of my favorite too. Blessings!

  5. Love this - its very quirky! Carolyn xx

  6. Fabulous tag Jules. All the hot air balloons have such lovely decorations! How wonderful to have been in one, you lucky girl. What an adventure :0) Mo

  7. Great tag, fab use of all the embellies! X

  8. Wow, this is amazing!! I Love the paint along the edge!

  9. Great vintage feel to your tag, Jules. I like the effect of the distresser tool, it really ages it. I also like the placement of the elements coming off the edge of the tag.
