a small remaining quantity of something.
a piece of cloth or carpeting left when the greater part has been used or sold.
a surviving trace.
I only have remnants of brain matter left this month after working on my entry for Tim's September tag--it was a challenge!
To begin with, I'm alcohol-ink impaired so piles of glossy stamping paper later, I finally arrived at a background that might work.
I don't have transparent gloss texture paste so I used gloss gel medium with Tim's Scribbles stencil instead. I thought it would dry clear but I believe the thicker application prevented this. It's still somewhat transparent though and the pop of alcohol ink colors shine through but it's obviously not the same effect as Tim's.
Rather than highlight the texture with archival ink I used Vintage Photo Distress stain to darken the cracks and provide some contrast.

There's no frosted paper in my studio so I took a laser printer transparency and sanded both sides to mimic this product. I guess it's close-enough but didn't curl as easy as his did.
Finishing touches included a Foliage charm, Remant Rubs (Words), ribbon scraps and Scribbles (3D fabric paint) dotted along the tag edges.
Tim's monthly tags always challenge me and this time, after allowing myself to fail (and learn), I thankfully pushed myself through.
I am grateful for the process and the end result!
