Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - January


I've decided to join in with Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2014, and here is my effort for January.  And below is Tim's.  The theme is "time".  I don't have any clock parts so I went for gears for the imagery, but added a clock rub-on and appropriate sentiment.  I sponged the gears with Distress Inks, then decided to paint them with Brushed Pewter Distress Paint and it dried a bit bubbly, but it made the gears look rusted and blistered, so it was a happy accident.


I'm entering it into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes with Twine or String, and I'll be back in a few with another entry for this challenge.

  2. Fun. A great reason to get inky. Can you believe I just saw that there was a craft show in Frankfurt (like 45 minutes from my house!) and I didn't know about it. Mr. Tim was there! Probably the closest I'll ever get to the man and I blow it!

  5. I love that you chose the gears and arrow for your tag...the sentiment is fabulous, too! Great idea for a young guy (and I think they're the hardest to create for)!
