Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 January

Good Evening Everyone!

I will be playing along this year with the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014.  Thanks Michele and Jodie for joining in on the fun at Chico Scrapbooks.  I had finished the January tag before I left for CHA but didn't get a chance to post it.

I followed Tim's tag, substituting where I didn't have the exact items.  I don't have the pumice stone distress stain so I squeezed some pumice stone re-inker on my craft sheet, spritzed with water, and  dragged the tag through it.  It came out a little darker than Tim's but I'm happy with the result.

Love the grunge and metal.  So fun to work with the pocket watch die and gears texture fade.

If you want to play along check on Tim's blog post for the January 2014 tag.  He has a supply list and step by step instructions here.  Remember its not about creating an exact duplicate of his tag but using the techniques and supplies.  You don't have to create a tag.  I have seen journal pages, cards and other art pieces.  Would love to have you join in.  If you do please let me know.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Happy creating!

Hugs,  Sharon
