Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016 - January

so…confession.  i have always wanted to play along with the tim holtz twelve tags! i am always inspired by them and always intend to accept the challenge to make my version of them.  well, this year, the 'remix' concept is AWESOME…it gives me a chance to take action and have the opportunity to try some of the techniques from the past…how exciting!  

so here we go…just under the wire…here is my January tag...

i LOVE how the industrious metal technique came out!

i did ink my embossed foil after i wiped the black distress paint off with mushroom alcohol ink…it added a great vintage look

i didn't have everything to do the chalkboard technique (a downfall of having your studio 1200 miles away)…so i had to improvise.  i used the new distress picket fence ink to stamp my verse and smudged it a bit before it dried.  then i used chalk to add chalk smudges to create an authentic look...

It looks fantastic! I like your chalkboard improv. It must be tough to have all your stuff in two different places, but you still made an amazing tag.

So glad you are playing along Chelle! Love your creative way of doing the chalkboard technique. That's what crafting is all about ... creating when you don't have what you want. Love the burst of color from your flower garden stamps. So perfect against the chalkboard and industrial background. Looking forward to seeing what you make next month!! -- Mary Elizabeth
