12 tags of 2012 Tim Holtz

What better way to start my blog then to do it with a Tim Holtz tag. I was so excited to see that I could actually get in on something that wasn't already over with.. well I did miss out on the February one but not March. He is doing a 12 tags, one every month. I think its an excellent idea and I am sure most of you Tim fans out there will think so too.. more of him over the course of the year instead of 12 days in the month of December. This month is a mosaic type of butterfly and I loved creating mine. I had most of the supplies just not the embossing powder he has introduced, or the wooden stamp. So what I did was used Ranger embossing Silver powder for the grout and I embossed my tag with the wood emboss folder and oh yeah, well I guess I didn't have some other supplies, but I did my own twist on his... I used his stuff, just different. I raised the butterflies with Ranger Pop It Shapes 3D glue dots. I made the roses from the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge, which I love making, popped a bling in the middle and added some glossy accents to the pedals to make them look wet. I added a stick pin at the top and put some gold pen on the pedals and it makes it look weathered. All in all, I think I did a pretty good job on it and it was absolutely super fun. I can not wait till next months... but in the meantime, I will be going back to February's and doing that one, just for fun.. hope you all like it.
