Tim's Tag October 2012

Hello to all my blog friends old and new and a big welcome to my latest followers, it is so nice to have you along on my crafting journey.

I ask myself a question each month - why, when I have so much Tim Holtz stuff do I struggle to find the necessary products for the tag each month?  Answer - I just need to get more!

This month was no exception but I wanted to make my tag look like Tim's because I love Halloween so much and I love the colours he used, so here we go, this is my tag:



I followed Tim's recipe for the base card but with musical tissue paper and some acrylic paints from my stash.   I enhanced the backing with Distress Inks.   I then stamped the cobwebs with a Stampendous stamp and then misted the tag with Perfect Pearls Gold.

Now came the fun part - making the glitter.  I admit I did panic and thought I had got it all wrong but wow, it looks great when you just keep mixing it and get rid of the lumps - a great technique.  I cut the letter for my 'boo' from the Wordplay die (using zeros instead of 'o's' because they were bigger) and glued the letters together with Glossy Accents.  I cut the flourish from the Elegant Flourishes die and trimmed a bit off.  I then put Glossy accents over both pieces and covered them with the glitter.  The spider was stamped (Stampendous), and Glossy Accented and glittered.

I don't have the ticket die but used a Journalling Ticket, cut down, added an October calendar, heavily distressed with Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo DI's and added a computer generated word - spooky.  I attached it with a little clothes peg that I coloured in orange acrylic paint.

To finish off I added Tim's Tinsel ribbon (have I said how much I love this stuff before - oh yes, sorry, I have) and some vintage seam binding dyed with Rusty Hinge DI.  I think I have enjoyed making this tag so much because they are techniques that I have never tried before and because I had to think about how to replace some products - always a challenge for me!

I hope you like my tag and I also hope you will leave me a comment, I love reading them and they encourage me to continue along this crafty road.  I will always try to return the compliment wherever possible.  Crafty hugs, Anne x

  5. Oh really, I love it, Anne. All of it ...
    I'm like you, love so many of his products (the paint dabbers are a pain, though), but I'm not able to catch up, I don't know if I even want to, it's just way too much for me :-)
    You did a very great job with replacing things, looks absolutely stunning - I, of course, love the spider :-) but the 'boo' turned out spectacular, too.
    Hugs, Suzanne xx

  12. Morning Anne,
    Great take on Tim's October Tag - I love it! The spider's webs are fab!
    Mine's underway as we speak, your's looks so much better though. Would you believe I've done the same as you for the 'Boo' - great minds think alike and all that! Loved doing the glitter, once all the lumps had gone. I'll be trying that one again, definitely!
    Thanks for all your lovely comments again this week. Have a great weekend . Linda xx

    Thank you so much for your support and comments whilst I have been awol, I am slowly starting to get back to normal , Tim has asked if I could please take a back step with Mum and Dad , at least until I get fully recovered, Its difficult, but I have to think of myself and my health now ,I am no good to them if I am poorly too, this fall really shook me, I have to put it all into perspective now.
