Wonderful!

Hi everyone,

Now I'm all caught up with the Tim Holtz Tags of 2016, I was determined not to fall behind, so I grabbed a few minutes this morning to make my tag for November. Well, in fact I've been making mini journal pages instead of tags and I just about have room to squeeze one last page in for December.

This year, Tim has been combining two techniques from previous years to create something totally different each month. For November, he reworked Remnant Rub Resist and Dimensional Colouring, as well as layering die cut cork over torn corrugated card to create lots of interesting texture.

Here's my version ..


The rose was stamped with Archival Ink onto the background and again onto some watercolour paper. The raised parts were coloured with Distress Inks on the watercolour paper, cut out and adhered to the background with foam dots. I think it gives a great three-dimensional effect, and I love the way the remnant rubs resist the inks and create that white halo around them.

Thanks for popping in to my blog today, see you again soon :o)

Loving the idea if rehashing previous techniques and you did a marvellous job with this, Annie! I can't believe it only took you a few minutes!

You've done well to keep up with the tags, as well as learning all the art techniques. Love the yellow colour you've chosen and that combined with the cork.

I agree with Helen... good on you for keeping up on top of everything else you have been doing. I fell by the wayside loooong ago.. :( I am really hoping next year will be less chaotic. This is a beautiful journal page and I think that is a fab idea. Love this Annie.
