12 Tags of Tim Holtz - December 2015
Hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas sharing the LOVE and enjoying some magical moments !
I must begin by apologising for not being around much during December! Things got a bit crazy here what with health issues and all the Christmas prep I was so behind with that I sadly have had little time spare to be creative and blog .Usually I am so organised for Christmas and everything is normally all good to go by the end of November but this year things really did leave me spinning!!
Needless to say the 'chilled white' has got me through and I'm back today in blog land to share with you my take on Tim Holtz tag for 12 tags of 2015- December
I've followed Tim's Tutorial to create my tag, making the necessary changes due to my craft stash lacking some of the craft supplies that Tim has used on his tag .
I used a piece of cream burlap to cover my tag before spritzing Fired Brick Distress Stain Spray through Tim's Flourish layering Stencil. I have to admit despite having a few spritz /stencilling doubts. I am really impressed with the end result!
I only have one of Tim's punches (Laurel so I also used a couple of the dies from Tim's Holiday Greens Thinlit Dies to create my wreath. I used both green and brown shades of Kraft Core card stock.
I adhered my foliage, as Tim does on the Tutorial, starting at the bottom of the wreath but I adhered the foliage in a continuous circle - lets say an unintentional error that I think I may just have gotten away with!
I used the medium sized bow and embellished it with a silver button that I altered using Alcohol Inks (mushroom and gold)
Santa was kind enough to bring me one of Tim Holtz splatter brushes for Christmas and as you can see i had great fun trying it out ! Its a must have in my opinion - splatters so much better than an ordinary paint brush . Thanks Santa - hope the mince pie I left for you was as good as my splatter brush is!
I thought I had the required small talk stickers but nope - wrong again so I have used a much loved sentiment stamp instead. I had to resort to some good old hand sewing too as my sewing machine is not 'in situ' at present .
I always finish off my tags by mounting on to card stock and fixing an eyelet around the hole of the tag to feed my choice of hanger through - in this case its a length of natural jute.
Here's my finished tag
I would like to enter this tag into the following challenges
I have loved joining in Tim's tag's this year and as a result of participating I now have a great body of work that I have to say I'm really proud of. I really hope Tim's up for doing another 12 tags for 2016 .
Fingers crossed !!
I guess its time now for me to go and make a start on my next piece of creativity so until the next time I will love you and leave you and thank you too for stopping by today. All your visits, comments and follows are very much appreciated !
Wishing you all a lovely week ahead
