Embrace the Creative Journey - Tim's Tags

This weekend I felt like playing with my Tim Holtz and Ranger stuff.  What better way than to make a tag.  I do follow Tim's blog and have long admired his 12 Tags of Christmas and the yearly 12 Tags as well.  I came across one for September 2013 and decided what the hay!!  Let's give it a try!!  At the bottom of my post is Tim's tag.

So here is my take.  The techniques highlighted were distress stains and paint resist and stencils.  I love the bold colours of the stains on this tag.  I also like the vintage photo ink through the stencils.  And check out the ribbon!!!  How cool that it matches :)  I pretty much love everything about the tag - the embossing paste, the black archival ink stamped butterflies, the word chatter outlined with the black soot distress marker, the rub-on!!





I did miss one step in the beginning and that was to include a metallic stain when adding the initial colours to the tag.  So I didn't get that shimmer that I saw in his tag.  So, after all was done I lightly misted mine with Pewter Perfect Pearls Mist.  And there you have it.  I'm working on my next tag already!!

This is so beautiful, I love the colours. And the use of texture really adds both dimension and interest.
