12 tags of 2016-July & One Little Quote

We have crested mid year and it's hard to believe this is the seventh tag already! In fact, we're getting down to just a few words left in my one little quote, so I'm going to skip showing you the previous tags, in case you guess it!

Tim's July Tag had plenty of inspiration, but I choose the stamp I used as we were spending a long weekend in Lake George and I was in an Adirondack kinda mood.

He featured a masking technique where you color your stamp first and then mask it so you can water color over it. I used Elmer's glue due to not having all the right products and it worked pretty well. I opted to just stamp it though in that brown. I did use a black sharpie to outline the boat a little.

If you look close near all the ribbon, you can see a piece of birch bark I cut in a scallop, which is actually FROM Lake George. Love those itty bitty blue flowers. They remind me of the little blue forget-me nots.

Really love the sparkle blue summer letters at the bottom of the tag. They were meant to mimic Tim's words on his tag, but really speak to the colors I used and the image!

Happiest of Tuesdays! I'm stuck going back to work! No more playing for me! I wish I was still on the lake!
