Here is Tim's tag for 12 tags of 2012 for August
Here is my take on it. I couldn't help it I did two - one for me and one for my mom!
I can't decide which I like better, I like them each for different reasons :)

Creative Core'Dinations
Sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!
I love the Core'Dinations paper and got a little carried away experimenting!
Below is my entry in the Studio L3 challenge along with some of my other "experiments" to be used at a later time.
I call this one Danse Macabre!
I love how the ink on the Core'Dinations paper gives the skeleton such a spooky look!

Here are the rest of the pieces I played with - so much fun!

Enameled Metal

Challenge 15 from the Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2, page 56 - chosen by the lovely Linda Ledbetter at Studio L3.  She makes me less lazy every week and keeps me creating!  This is one of those weeks that I just wasn't in to it but inspiration struck at the 11th hour (almost literally) and I'm going to squeeze one in just under the wire!  
This week's fun was the enameled metal technique.  Here's how I got inky with it! 
Don't sell yourself sort - have faith in yourself and your worth and let your soul soar!
