12 Tags of 2016 Remix - November

November people! Where is the time going?  I am in full steam ahead Christmas mode around here, but I am sharing my 8x8 layout for the 12 tags of 2016. You can find the links and technique info over on Tim Holtz' blog here.
Thanks for taking the time to look...see you soon!

I added a strip of Scor tape along the side and bottom. It gave the cork letters something to stick to and then I poured distress glitter over the exposed adhesive.

Urban Scrapbook's Monthly Challenge Kit - November

Hi everyone! It's time for the November kit over at Urban Scrapbook! This month features Echo Park's "I Love Family" collection. Head on over the the blog to see what else is in store. <<see what I did there? hehehe...
As always, I started with the colors from the papers. The blue pumpkin was a perfect fit for the focal image. Here is the link for photo credit. Hexagons were my repeated pattern from one of the papers in the kit. I added some images in there too, that were printed from my Silhouette Studio software.
Got washi tape? I tore long strips and twisted them. It sticks to itself, and is a great cheat way to make "branches". It sprinkled some German Glass Glitter on them to give it a little more bling.
Extras that are not in the kit that I used were:
Peacock feathers distress ink
Frameworks die (I used as a stencil for the background)
Thinlits Mixed Media die (stencil)
Letters A U N (which I had in my stash of sticky letters)

see you soon, I have been in full Christmas card mode around here.
