October Tim Tag - Version 1 - Fall

It is Tim tag time! I love Tim's tag this month but don't have all the relevant stamps. So I decided to follow the techniques and do a few versions. If I get round to finishing them I will post next week. Here is Tim's version:

So this mine is the Fall version - so I would also like to share at Frilly and Funkie - where the theme is Autumn Colours. 

My tag includes texture paste and distress sprays as Tim's, but without the stamped and masked spider first. To add some contrast and balance I added some remnant rubs.

 I decided my focal point would be some autumn leaves all painted and crackled until I was happy with them. Two pictures below, one in sunlight, one not:

I love the idea of remnant rubs on the monocle - I added autumn toned DP's to mine.

Weather not great here today so struggled to get good photos again - the sun is low it casts horrible shadows and out of the sun it isnt really bright enough!
Back tomorrow for the new challenge at A Vintage Journey.
Thanks for looking.
