12 Tags of 2013- August

It's not a TAG, I know:)  I decided on a wall hanging for my Media Room.  But sometimes things don't turn out how we hoped.  It may not be a Tag however, I did use the same techniques and some of the same supplies.  No photo tutorial this month.  I had August Tag to get done and my daughter turns 17 next week...WOW!  So this week I am one busy Mommy!
 
 
Nope no tag but manila folders cut with the Postage Frame die works pretty awesome;) I did use Distress Stains but some different colours since I don't have the same colours Tim used.  Using the Walnut Stain and Antique Brass it warms it up a little.

OMG, I love this old Balloon and without having the ship stamp it's a perfect replacement.  Using the same colours with the Distress Paints I applied it to the metal #'s 4 1/2 and glued it on. 
 
I didn't have time to hunt out the Mask that was used.  Instead I used acetate.  With the same technique I stamped, dried, cut and glued with Glossy Accents.  I found smearing a light coat of glue with my finger worked well.
 
I piece of thick twine knotted at the ends is all it takes to hang it up...in my Craft Room!
 
 
It's not where I wanted it to go but in the end it works:)  And I like it over my Sponge Blocks:)

I made this frame a few weeks ago...well not the frame, I bought that.  But I did make all the stuff that goes in the frame.  I used the Jalopy die, rubs and various goodies to personalize our FAMILY frame above our mantle in the Media Room.  You can see how I wanted the August "Wall Hanging" near it...oh well.
 
Thanks for popping in to see.  I can't believe September Tag is next!  Are you making the 12 Tags?  If you are, leave me a comment with your link so I can see.  Hopefully while I'm bumping around Vancouver Island seeing family I will hit WIFI now and then.  Mmmm... like STARBUCKS!
 
Have a great August:)
