"12 Tags of 2012"

Morning folks...crikey are we really onto the September tag already...seems just like yesterday I was doing the first one...of course I'm referring to that world wide phenomenon that make all us Timmie fans have palpitations of anticipation as the first day of each month approaches...what else could whip a bunch of crafters into such a frenzy...it could only be...


here's Tim's Tag...
and no surprise that mine looks absolutely nothing like the Maestro's...I don't really think Tim wants us to make an exact replica of his tag but to use the techniques and put our own spin on them using the products we have in our crafty stash...that my excuse and I'm sticking by it...

I didn't buff mine as far back either...to be honest I didn't have any steel wool and the old dry brillo pad didn't have quite the same scrubby power but I rather like the more rusty metal look...

I just knew that these metal embellishing tools...

bought when I went to the Tim Holtz/Paperartsy Workshops with my lovely buddy Carol way back in February 2011...would come in handy some day...just goes to show that maybe all those "why did I buy that" purchases were not in vain.
See you all tomorrow over at WOYWW...

What a lovely job. I agree that Tim doesn't expect to be copied completely.
I like to think he wants to inspire us to create.

Redanne said...

Your tag is amazing, love your background, those tools create such a realistic look and I love that unburnished look too. Your take on TH's tag is all the better for putting your own spin on it. Love the house. Crafty hugs, Anne x

So much depth and detail to your tag! I think keeping the rust was a great idea, it's an important color element on your tag.

Your tag is really pretty and I love your "spin" on it. That little house is a cool idea!<3 Candy

Helen said...

Wonderful tag Kath. One of my favourite this month. I love the soft green contrast to the industrial metal. In fact my favourites and my own tag have been the ones that have put a bit of a feminine twist to their interpretation of Tm's tag this month.

Anna said...

Oh...I love this! I really like the brown of the background and the little metal roof on the house! The house reminds me of my house built in 1920 and it's metal roof...well until we replaced the roof a couple of years ago.
I used metal embossing tools on my my project too. I have a whole set that I got from Ten Second Studios and I love them. They were perfect for working with the metal tape.

Love the tag. Love how you soften the metal a bit with the green house and coordinating ribbon.
