Hexagon week - Neil

Neil's turn today....who originally started with a tag, but things evolved and got a bit out of hand.. and I'm glad it did because I looove this art journal page!
Neil also used the Tando Creative Distorted Hexagon

 To begin, I inked up a tag and used the Tando Creative mask with Grunge Paste to add the hexagons. The basic background of the page is a mop up background in pale yellows over which I layered the flowers and circles with silver paint. 
I stamped over that with the Honeycomb background in Coffee Archival ink and to finish I used Black Soot Distress ink through the mask in areas too.

 To detail the flowers I outlined them with Spiced Marmalade Distress Marker and used a water brush to blend it. I attached the tag to the page, on the right hand side only, using tissue tape so it could be flipped over for journaling. 
I used the same tape to create a tie for the tag and attached a key charm with wire. 
The butterflies were stamped and cut out then sprayed with Dylusions ink in Melted Chocolate and Squeezed Orange. I love how they've turned out looking all rusty. I attached them to the page. (Make sure that you position the one on the tap so that it won't impede the opening of the tag!)
Now it's all ready for journaling, any ideas folks?

Neil used:
Masks - Tando Creative: Distorted Hive, Leaves and Sequin Waste
IndigoBlu - Honeycomb
Dylusions inks -Melted Chocolate and Squeezed Orange

See you tomorrow
