Well better late than never, just got back in from teaching a workshop, we've been doing the ABC book of me, a kind of beginners guide to Art Journalling, Everyone had very inky fingers by the end of it, including me as the ladies were busy creating some backgrounds I snuck in the creating of my latest tag with whatever there was to hand !
So here it is :

I coloured the background with distress inks the following colours : Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive & Mustard Seed. I stamped Tims Circles stamp in Fired Brick,and the pen nibs in sepia archival, then using the crafters workshop swirl mask went over the top with a bit more peeled paint.
I added some torn pages from a book, inking the lower layer peeled paint & the top layer mustard seed.
I added a House from Dyan Reaveleys Download sheets see here
I used black soot to colour the grunge board element, fired brick for the letter A & added the clock & spinner from Tim's Ideaology range. I finished off using Gellyroll pens, Black on the no.9 on the house door & White around the edges and the A.
You can find Linda's creation here : Here
