Hello again Everyone
What a week its been - 3 blog posts in as many days - think that's a record for me!! Its definitely been a creative , productive week and I have the inky fingers to prove it. So pleased I got my 'scrubbie' !
So today it's time to share my take on Tim Holtz tag for 12 tags of 2016- January
You can see Tim's tag for January 2016 and how he created it here and as he's the 'Master of his Game' and explains everything so well there really is no need for me to go into detail so lets get started!
Here's my tag
I used the same embossing folder as Tim did and I have to say I have always LOVED this Industrial Metal technique from the first time I ever tried it.
Now the Chalkboard technique is something I haven't tried before until now. I tried a few times but I wasn't getting a result I was happy with so I decided that I would come back to it (I'm not one to give in) when I had more time and I would use the chalk in a slightly different way to Tim on my chosen blueprint stamp - the padlock from Tim's Industrial Blueprint stamp set
I stamped the padlock in Versamark, embossed with white embossing powder, heat set and then delicately applied Silver gilding wax over the embossing. I then used the chalk to outline the image and smudged the chalk as I worked. Its been a while since I last used chalk back in my teaching days so thanks Tim for the memories !
As Tim did on his tag I layered my image also - the centre panel on the lock. I also added an embellishment - an Ideology long fastener fed through an Ideology washer and adhered over the keyhole.
I painted my chosen wordband with Black Soot distress paint,
punched an eyelet over the tag hole and fed a length of silver chain through the hole.
and here it is again - My finished Tag for Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016 - January
the first of this years collection.
I do enjoy making my 'Tim' tags, just hope I can make all 12 this year - fingers crossed !!
Thanks again for taking the time out to stop by today - I really do appreciate it . I hope I make your visits worthwhile and you leave feeling a little inspired and/or motivated to go and connect with your creative self.
Be sure to have a lovely weekend
Stay safe and warm
