12 Tags of 2013 - Tim Holtz (January)

Each year I see Tim Holtz start his 12 tags series and I ALWAYS intend on joining in but never do. This year is a year of change and I thought I would kick the new year off with getting creative and joining right in with '12 Tags of 2013'. I thoroughly enjoyed putting this tag together and now my fingers are all wonderfully inky. 

Thankfully I thought ahead and decided to make two tags as I always seem to get attached to my work and never want to give it away. Now I have one for me and one for someone else. 

Happy New Year to you all!!!

    1. Wow!!! I actually won something?? Woohooo, this news made my very early morning. Super exciting. Now looking forward to getting cracking on February's tag (some major improvisation is going to be needed!).

      Delete
  14. Love your colors and the eye in the corner! Major improvisation is half the fun! This is my 4th year i have done the tags (don't always get them posted, but always get them made!) and I make it a rule to never run out and buy something I don't have but instead create with what I have! Enjoy the journey!

    1. Hi Nonnie, what a lovely post you have left me, thank you for taking the time. I am hearing what you are saying regarding improvisation, I have just finished my tag for February, definitely used product I already had and still somehow it sort of looks a little like Tim's (but really not at all, oh well, I made it mine!). I am loving the journey so far, it has really made me open my mind a little further and also begin to use up some of this ample craft stock I have been hoarding. Have yourself a fabulous weekend!!!
