TH 12 tags of 2012 - August

Hello dear Bloggy friends!

It is the weekend and I have finished my physio, so I thought I would do something crafty! I have been following Tim Holtzes "12 tags of 2012" but I never join in because I usually find that I don't have all the bits and bobs that are needed and sometimes I just can't be bothered to think up something to replace what I don't have. Well this morning when I looked at the tag again I found that I could make it so I did....
I did use all of Tim Holtz techniques but most of the material and embelishments I made myself....
Here is what I made....




The focal image is an Alpha Stamp, the black embossed frame is a Viva stamp. I used a Darice embossing folder - it was the only one I had with a sort of window in the middle! I didn't have the Juniper dabber so I mixed white and teal acrylic paint and got a similar color...I did have all the distress inks Tim Holtz used! I added a bit of lace on top as I thought it went well with the black frame! I colored some ribbon and added some fiber for interest and I made my own "roses" and charms with perls and a swarovski cristal. The sentiment is computer generated!
So there that is my Saturday evening making....I will pop this on the TH blog!
Have a nice rest of the weekend, see you soon!
Lots of hugs to all of you

  1. Lovely interpretation of the TH tag. Like you, I had none of the materials used by himself so I improvised too. I love your blue roses. Elizabeth x

  2. Just catchingup on some blog time and saw this posting you have done a wonderful job on your tag. I also to gave up because sometimes products or just time outright.

    Oh and Adelaide to Melbourne along the Great Ocean Road, that is the longest way to go but the most beautiful and very windy.
