TTT – December 2016

hello everyone!

holy wow! I can’t believe that yet another year of Tim’s Tags has come and gone! the 12 tags of 2016-remix (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2016-december/)has been so full of inspiration and revisiting the techniques from years gone pass makes me realize how many things i have done and forgotten, and also makes me realize how far i have come!!

I know I  am not the only one who loves to look back and see what each tag/technique we have done gives us the inspiration we need sometimes when that mojo is missing. I personally have mine all hung above my work space and literally look at them each time I am stuck.  all the techniques can be transformed into an art journal page, a canvas, a scrapbook layout, a card etc….

so here is my final tag for 2016. as i was creating my tag this month i wanted to end my 2016 with a thought…. ‘cherish the moments’ is how one really needs to live each and every day so that is what i went with

 

december-tag

and  a few close ups!

december-tag-1 december-tag-3 december-tag-4

i didn’t follow exactly as tim did but that is what i believe he encourages us to do every month….recreate using his techniques but make it our own…..thank you so much tim for all your inspiration (http://timholtz NULL.com/blog/)though the years.

TTT – November 2016

hello everyone!!

i am here today to  quickly share with you all my version of this months Tim’s Twelve Tags – Remix 2016 (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2016-november/). for all the step outs and the hows to’s drop on over to his site and following along!! you have one day left to post your take!!

for me this month was a reminder of how much i love to just lay a  sheet of remnant rubs (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Idea-ology-GILDED-HOLIDAYS-Remnant-Rubs-TH93250--TH93250-) on a tag and let be what happens after a quick rub..the randomness of the whole thing is what makes a wonderful background for the tag or art journal page and i love that

so here is my take:

november-tagi chose to use the white remnant rubs as i am in full Christmas mode in the studio preparing for an upcoming class and with the forecast of some snow i thought i would do the whole winter theme… i used the snowflake from the blueprint christmas (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Cling-Rubber-Stamps-CHRISTMAS-BLUEPRINT-CMS135-46738?currency=USD) stamp set along with an idea-ology piece and the back ground the snowflake from the layered snowflake (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Sizzix-Bigz-Die-and-Texture-Fades-LAYERED-SNOWFLAKE-660040-660040TH) die

november-tag-believe i loved using the metal sheets as the background for my believe…shiny things make me happy!!november-tag-snowflakehope you all enjoyed creating your latest piece and that you have uploaded your projects for all to enjoy!

see you next month with some more pieces from me

TTT – October 2016

hello everyone!!

i am here today to  share my take on Tim’s Twelve Tags – Remix 2016 (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2016-october/). for all the step outs and the hows to’s drop on over to his site and following along!!

this month i had the best time ever creating my tag.. want to know why???  well you see Auntie Carol was here visiting over the weekend and we were down in the studio thinking what could we work on and i asked her how about Tim’s tag as i hadn’t done mine yet this month and it was a fun one to do!!!

so out came the ephemera, the foil, the die, paint and alcohol inks! and with lots of coffee and a few laughs here is what we came up with…tim-holtz-october-tags

we pretty much followed Tim’s tag instructions for this month. i love that i had the opportunity to share my love of Tim’s tags with her!

i love love love the creepiness of my zombie!

zombie-die-2

i especially loved the distress crayons on the crazing!! it is so much fun.. addictive almost!!!ttt-october

well that is it for me for now!

hope you have played along too!!!

TTT – August 2016

hello everyone!!

holy wow where has summer gone!   i can’t believe we are mid way through August already .. okay now it is not really mid way but almost the end of August!!  i had created this tag almost as soon as Tim posted it but am now just getting around to posting it.

i have to admit as much as i love summer and those days of creating on the deck pool side i much prefer the temperatures that come with the fall. although i had two weeks of vacation and had great plans on creating the whole time i found myself in a funk. i am trying to get out of it but if you have been in a funk you know how hard that can be. so i have been enjoying cleaning and moving things around my studio instead.

anyway, that is not why i am here today.  today i am here to share with you my take on Tim’s 12 tags – remixed for August (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2016-august/)

TTT 2016 Augusti absolutely loved Tim’s tag this month, well truthfully we all know i love them every month, but this one is so much fun to do.   i didn’t stray too far from his as i totally loved his just the way it was/is

i chose the quote to celebrate my anniversary month. all true true words i believe for the love of my life

so that is it for this month’s tag. i am hoping to share another project before months end.

hope you have been creating and being in your spaces

TTT – July 2016

hello everyone!!

i am here today to  share my take on Tim’s Twelve Tags – Remix 2016 (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2016-july/). for all the step outs and the hows to’s drop on over to his site and following along!!TTT july 2016

I always forget how much fun the distress markers can be. I have them and love looking at the them and moving them around my desk but since I am not someone who just colours, I never use them….  I am so going to stop doing that!

so for my tag, I decided to use the Nautical Blueprint (https://stampersanonymous NULL.com/tim-holtz-cling-mount-stamps-nautical-blueprint-cms194 NULL.html)stamp set and couldn’t decide which stamp to use so end up creating two tags

tim holtz explore the beach I love how because I used the micro glaze (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-DISTRESS-MICRO-GLAZE-Ranger-TDA46967-TDA46967)that when it came time to add my spritz of black using this tool (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Distress-Marker-SPRITZER-TOOL-Ranger-TDA39730-64479)as well as my background blues, it doesn’t touch my shells!!tim holtz discover the ocean I also love how the distress markers, when blended using the water brush, (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product?id=92731&currency=USD) actually make me think the colouring of this shell is real!SA seashell stamp

and the star dollar, which up until this year I so wanted to find one, until I realized that they were live creatures..now I just want to see one as it buries itself in the sand!SA sanddollar

and as i was adding bits to my tag one of tim’s foliage flowers (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Idea-ology-FOLIAGE-Flowers-Leaves-Hardware-Metal--TH92788-15696)  fell onto the floor and I thought. hmmm I wonder.. so out came my pliers and I have tried shaping it like the inside of my sand dollar.. kind of cool I think!!

exploring the beach and discovering the ocean are two of my favourite things to do in the summer so this months techniques and remixes fit perfectly! totally brought me joy creating these two tags this month! thanks Tim!

hope you all are taking the time to create art from your soul!
