Catching up with Tim Holtz Tags

Hellooooooooo my lovely bloggy mates,

This year I was TOTALLY going to keep up with the Tim Holtz Tags of 2016, but somehow yet agian I've fallen behind - which is a shame, because they are really quite quick to do, they get me using up all that stuff I have stashed in my craft room, and they always give me a kick up the mojo!

For 2016, Tim is doing a "technique remix" each month, where he takes two techniques from previous tags and combines them to create something new and exciting.

Yesterday, I made this one for September ...


,,, as you can see, this year I am not actually making tags - I decided to create little pages instead and file them in the gorgeous leather journal which my good friend Trina gave me for Christmas.

This month, the talented Tim showed us how to use Yupo paper for a marvellous resist technique. As always, I didn't have all the supplies Tim used, so had to improvise - but that's half the fun isn't it?! I did have some yupo paper though - it's a bit expensive, but great fun to use and unlike any other paper. I struggled to get the resist to work, but will definitely try again. You can watch Tim Holtz making it look REALLY EASY on this YT vid :o)

Ok, no time to chat, I have June, July and August to catch up on now!! Thanks for popping in, I'll see you again soon.

This is so gorgeous Annie! Loving those deep colours! The book will look wonderful with all the pages put together! I just saw a reference to those TH tags the other day and thought it was a great initiative. I would love to follow along if I had the time! We're so spoilt for inspiration aren't we? The hardest part is to choose which classes/challenges to take part in. I saw you'd signed up for Wanderlust 2017! Me too! I wasn't sure I was going to as I'm slipping behind this year, but with such a great line-up it is unmissable. Are you going to sign up for LB 2017 as well? I can't NOT do it - it's like a drug! I need my Monday fix! I figured, even if I just complete half the lessons, it's worth it. I'll link you up to WOYWW next week, no probs!

Great layout--how clever to create pages for a book. Your contribution this month is full of whimsy and I love it!

You're really living up to your name this year Annie. Lots of arty, farty creations, which always inspire and delight. I could do with a good kick up the Mojo as well, so ought to follow along with Tim's tags. I've never heart of that special paper, so must be off to consult Mr Google.

C'mon my friend, you CAN DO IT!!!! Catch up!!! I'd forgotten your 'aspiration' for Tim this year..... & you're right - they don't take long, it's just DOING them!! LOVE the green in here and those eyes....I first thought they were a stamp...but after all your arty farty stuff....maybe you DREW them>>>> eitherways, they look great:):) And I had a giggle at lack of Tim supplies.....nodding my head here, had the prob last year when I was playing along. Like you say, good for lateral thinking and scrap busting skills;)!!!

Valerie Thorpe said...

Oh yes this one rocks. The colours the kind of grungy steampunky feel to it and then those eyes :D This is lovely
