Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 November

Good Evening!

Is it really the last day of November?  I swear Tim just posted his tag for this month.  Check out his fantastic tag here.  Be sure to also scroll down to the bottom of the page to see what everyone else created.

I'm just happy that I was able to make some time to create my version.  Since Thanksgiving has past, the leaves are falling, and its almost December I decided to do a snowy version.  Don't you just love the layered dies?  This snowflake is just amazing.

 I chose some blues and some iced spruce for my background.

Faded Jeans for the embossing portion.

A silver for the foiling.  Now that's really cool.

More blues for the corrugated cardboard.

Now here are when things took a decidedly dark turn.  I only have three colors of distress stain sprays so far.  So far, hee hee.  I used pumice stone and need some more practice on the spotty technique.  It was more spray than spot.  Looking quite dark at this point.  I wanted to lighten things up and get some "spots".  What to do?  Hmmm, could I do a flicking technique?  Well, yes.  I smooshed several colors of blue stain on my mat, hit it with some water and flicked it onto the tag.  Subtle, but I think it helped.  As you can see, I think I got more ink on my fingers than on the tag.  Don't mind a bit.  Love to get inky!

Determined to go with the flow and enjoy the process I went forward with this dark and grungy snow flake.  I added some white rubs on, ribbon, and the alpha parts.  So happy with the overall look and really felt good about staying in the moment.

Hope you like my version of Tim's November tag.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Creating!

Hugs,  Sharon
