From Paris...With Love ~ 12 Tags of 2013

Hello friends and happy weekend!!

Hope you're all really well and surviving this heat!! I've felt that I've been living in an oven for the last week and feel well and truly roasted...lol! Today, is supposedly cooler here in London before another onslaught of high temperatures next week, so fingers crossed as excessive temperatures and working with papers and glue aren't the best combination! Why do we never get anything in between here in the UK?

Anyway, it's a flying visit from me today...lots to do and many deadlines looming that have to be met but I just wanted to pop by to share my July tag that I am entering for Tim's 12 Tags of 2013.

I loved making this one and adored the brayering technique on the background of the tag. As you can see, I went for a Parisian feel for my tag and as always, there's plenty of pics so you can see all the detail of this piece and I really hope you like it...



  I added a few bits of Idea-ology to my tag and a few more Sizzix die cuts!



 
 I took these photos outside because the sunlight really showed up the fabulous crackling that you get with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint.

Okey dokey, that's it from me for today...hope you all have a fabulous weekend and all enjoy the sunshine whether it be sitting outside or from inside like me, hiding out in a cool spot with a fan!!
See you all very soon...bye for now!
Love Emma xxx
