Live In The Moment - TH 12 Tags of 2016 March

Hi all,

Did another Tag for the TH 12 Tags of 2016 in March. I didn't have a some of the items that he used to achieve the exact Tag but I improvised with what I had on hand. I have to be honest it turned out okay but would like to redo this using the TH distress crayons.

This years Tags are themed "2016 Technique Remix", which means that he is taking techniques used in recent years and adding them together.

Supplies I used for this Tag:
Dies - TH Alterations - Tresllis; Butterfly Duo
Inks - TH distress paint - picket fence, seedless preserves, spiced marmalade, broken china, mowed lawn, spun sugar, mustard seed; Distress Inks - Vintage photo; Destress Stains - Vintage Photo, Tarnished Brass, Picket Fence.
Accessories - twine and yellow ribbon; gold leaf scattered around the tag; metal embellishments; TH ideaology - Hinges; TH manila tags and corrugated cardboard; White Gesso
Paper - TH ideaology - paper stash - Seasonal (8x8)

For this tag I followed along with the directions stated on TH Blog but used my 
TH paints, dies and other items I had on hand. After spritzing the corrugated
cardboard I used gold leaf around the tag. 
For the background I covered the tag with a sheet of paper used from paper stash;
used the trellis die cut, added a gesso, then painted around the tag. 
I made a little butterfly out of the TH Hinges.
