Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - December
Here is the last Tim Holtz tag of 2014 - you can see Tim's tag here. I went a different direction with this one, but, the background is much the same. I did not have frosted sheets, so I used unembossed frosted film and sewed it onto the tag with a zig-zag stitch. You can see the stamped snowflakes and painted background under the film - I love the gentle frosted look of the film on top. The snowflakes are die cut from chipboard that has Tim Holtz paper collaged onto it. I wired the snowflakes together so that I could add beads, buttons, and a jingle bell. The snowflakes can be detached and used as an ornament. I do love a card that jingles!
So that completes a whole year of tags. I have learned so much this year by taking the 12 tag challenge. First and foremost, I have learned to add depth and many layers to my work. I think my cards before were just a bit too one-dimensional. I also learned some really cool techniques and had a lot of fun. Finally, I am now more confident in going my own direction with the techniques. Thank you Tim for the inspiration!
