I've promised myself that this year I will try to keep up with the Tim Holtz Tags of 2015. Tim is always full of new ideas and inspiration - even though I usually don't have all the materials he's used, it's fun to improvise and I always end up trying something new or digging out something I've had sitting in my workroom for ages.
Here's my January tag - somehow it turned out much darker and grungier than Tim's, maybe I was in a dark and grungy mood ...
There were quite a few items on Tim's list this time which I didn't have (yet!) but I did the best I could to achieve a similar look with the supplies I do have.
For example, Tim used Tissue Wrap Postale to create the crinkled background. I didn't have any, so made some for myself by stamping with Archival Ink onto plain tissue ...
... then went on to almost completely cover it up of course, but I love the effect and it's an idea I will use again for sure. I also don't have any Chit-Chat Stickers, so I typed loads of little words onto old paper on my faithful Gabriele and cut them out - I think they look just as good and I like their slight wonkiness due to my rusty typing skills!
When my tag was finished, I popped it into the little file caddy which I made last week especially to store my TH Tags of 2015 - a perfect fit :o)
Thanks for visiting my blog today - pop over to the Tim Holtz Blog to see how it should be done! see you again soon!
