Believe in your dreams......

Yay...my craft room is finally sorted....
 I've had the chance to have a good rummage through my stash....and have found stuff that I forgot I had!!!!...So, I thought I would mess it all up again, and get a little inky....
Every year I look at Tim Holtz's tags and am amazed at his creativity and inspiration.  So this year I'm hoping to play along for the first time each month and be inspired by his arty creations. 
 -oOo-
 So....here is my version of Tim's
January 2014 tag

I didn't have some of Tim's supplies, so I used some similar items from my crafty stash, but even if I did it wouldn't of come out exactly the same, because I like to change it up a little bit ;)  
For the background I have used the 'gathered twigs' distress stain, 'vintage photo' distress ink pad with 'measured' and 'splatters' stencils
I don't have the pocket watch die, so I went with an embossed metal tape arch...I used 'swirls' texture fade to use with the metal foil tape, and I also used 'French connections'-wings texture trades and some gold metal tape to make my little angels (paperwhimsy image) wings.
 I really like how the metal effect came out
...and I've also added a TH corked vial filled with glittery dreams!!
It was certainly fun to play along with 
Tim's 12 Tags of 2014
 Looking forward to seeing what Tim inspires us with in February
Thanks for Peeking

  2. This is beautiful Jan! I really do love how you've created your own style from Tims original. Mine is similar to his as I have lots of clock/cog embossing folders so used them on my tag. Look forward to seeing what you do next month :)

  5. Hi Jan, I saw your tag link on Tim's page and had to take a look! I love your version so much! Very cool how you created the wings and I like the arched frame background just as much, if not better, than the pocket watch! I, too, hope to get all 12 tags done this year...something I've not yet achieved! We'll see if I do!
