Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016 - September Take One

Hello Everyone and Welcome

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are all refreshed and fully charged for the week ahead. I got to spend some of my weekend with Tim ... well ok I'm hypothetically speaking of course but hey this girl can dream !!
Yep, I've been busy creating my take on Tim's September 2016 tag and am here today to share the results of my creativity. You can see Tim's September tag and how he created it here and as ever the master of his craft Tim explains everything so well in his tutorial there really is no need for me to go into any great detail.
So here is my FIRST take on Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016- September ( Take TWO can be found here ) .
The distress paint patina tag - Distress paints used : Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, Twisted Citron, Forest Moss, Tarnished Brass and Antiqued Bronze .
The alcohol ink resist panel - inks used : Pitch Black, Mushroom and Stream .
and just a few close ups of the ideology embellishments: long fasteners, mini gears (hammered) , remnant rub and Alpha parts. I set out using 'Documented' as my chosen Alpha part and had what I shall call 'a moment' and used heat to dry the paint!!! Needless to say there was some serious 'shrivel ' going down so have used 'This is life' instead . I think it works well though with the evolution man .
 a game spinner.,some film strip, eyelets, a star charm, a vial sticker and remnants rubs and some stitching.
Once again here is my first take on Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016 September
As always big thanks to you Tim for providing the monthly creative inspiration to get inky trying out both new and old techniques . Making my monthly tag/s is something I always look forward to and this one was no exception . Can't wait for the next one !!
Thanks to you all for stopping by today there. Your visits, followers and comments are always welcome and much appreciated .
I'm heading over to Tag two now - hope you will join me there
See you again soon
Take care
and keep on the happy side
