12 Tags of 2016, March

Hello all you lovely Blogging Friends.

Time for the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 : March.

As you know by now, this year's tags are made with combined techniques from previous years' tags. This month Tim revisited Textures and Dimensional Cuts
and this is the beautiful tag Tim came up with:
You may want to join in on the fun by clicking HERE to get the details on Tim's Blog.
I really love this remix technique and I again created 2 tags as well as a page for my Photo Carousel. The Distress Crayons are not available where I live and I do not have Distress Spray Stains, so I used what I have and replaced the Distress Crayons with Gelatos and the distress spray stains with Distress Stains and Distress Paint

Products Used - TH/Ranger/Sizzix
Tissue Wrap - Terminology
Eclectic Elements (Coats) 6 Inch Fabric Crafting Pack
Cutting Die - The Umbrella Man
Game Spinners
Word Stickers - ChitChat 
Multi Medium - Matt
Distress Stain - Walnut, Mustard Seed
Distress Paint - Picket Fence, Festive Berries, Antiqued Bronze
Distress Inks - Aged Mahogany, Walnut Stain, Gathered Twigs
Alcohol Ink - Butterscotch
Other - Craft Sheet, Tonic Scissors, Heat Tool, Tiny Attacher

Here are my tags and Photo Carousel Page:

For the 2 tags, I used sections of Silhouette patterns as I also do not have the same dies Tim used. For the Photo Carousel page, I used Enmarc Crafts' Dazzle Stencil : Old Brick Wall which I traced and cut out. I coloured The Pocket Watch chipboard piece black and then painted the detail with white to mimic the metal pieces which were rubbed with a white gelato to add detail.

 Dazzle Stencil : Old Brick Wall
The Pocket Watch is a custom made piece.

Thank you for stopping by. Your comment is much appreciated :-)

Till next time, Crafty Regards!

12 Tags of 2016 : January

Hello all you lovely Bloggers!

I jumped in with the February challenge of the 12 Tags of 2016, but even though I cannot participate in the January challenge anymore, I still made my tags ;-)

This year Tim Holtz decided to revisit previous years’ techniques and to combine 2 different techniques on one tag. So, for January, the Technique Remix is Chalkboard and Industrious Metal and this is what he came up with.

Don't you just love the chalkboard effect? I do! :-)

If you would like to join in on the fun, please visit Tim Holtz’s Blog -http://timholtz.com/category/12-tags-of-2016/  - for more information on this year's 12 Tags.

Products Used – TH/Ranger/Stampers Anonymous:
Stampers Anonymous – Mini Blueprints 8 CMS231
Texture Fades – Damask
Multi Medium
Distress Paint – Black Soot
Heat tool
Tonic Scissors

Here is my take on the challenge:
I got the sketch idea from Helen Allen and love it! :-)

I have yet again created 2 tags as well as a black Index Tab for my photo carousel.
I followed the recipes as much as possible, but used what I have.
