Tim's Tag January 2013

Hello Everyone

Tim Holtz has delighted his many followers by doing 12 Tags again in 2013.  Last year at this time I did not even know who Tim was - oh how things have changed - I don't seem to be able to do anything these days without using at least one of his products and I am totally addicted to doing his tags.

Here is Tim's actual tag for January:

 
 
Once again, I did not have all the products that Tim used but I did use Tim's recipe for the tag, so here is mine:
 
 


The background is embossed with a clock embossing folder that I bought from Creative Expressions some time ago, it is quite large but I cut the top of it so that my No. 10 tag would fit in.  I then cut an inch or so from the bottom of my tag to balance the embossing element.  The cogs are die cut from Spellbinder Sprightly Sprockets because the TH cogs that I ordered during the sales have not yet arrived. 

Apart from these items and the stamps Tim used to overstamp the ribbon (I used a mini typewriter style stamp set) , everything else is pretty much as Tim did his so I won't go into any further detail. There have been some fabulous entries this month, do go over to http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2013-january/ and have a look, if you get the time.

Thank you, as ever, for looking and for all the lovely comments you have left in my last few posts, it cheers me up and keeps me motivated!  Take care.  Hugs, Anne x

  2. Hello Anne,
    What can i say but Top of the class again. I absolutely love what you do on your tags...I am almost stuck for words (and that takes some doing believe me)
    I have been looking at your previous posts I find myself loving the next one i see as much if not more than the last one i looked at. You have the award from me for best backgrounds ever.
    You have to show a new tag every day now Anne,otherwise i will go into withdrawal.
    Kindest regards
    Nelle xxxx

  4. Gosh, I can't believe you've only been channeling Tim for just a short year. You sure have his techniques down to a perfect T. Your tag is so "Tim", and is perfect with your own take on it. Do you ever send any of your work to him....or write a comment at his blog? My friend met him at CHA last year, says he's very 'down to earth'. I have to get you & my buddy together....This is a fabulous tag...You done good, girl. (Hope you got the BSE issue resolved too.) Hugs

  16. One word Anne Lovely. I like how the emboss folder pops out with a nice big clock and I think this is perfectly preportioned with the cogs you have used.

  26. Spectacular, Annie! I can't believe that you weren't a Tim afescianado (no idea how to spell that so we'll just pretend it's a Darnellism if it's wrong) just a year ago! I'm sure he must count you as one of his best practitioners!! You've got him nailed IMO!!

    It is remarkable that this time last year you were saying "Tim, who?" and now look at what you are creating with his products.
    A fabulous tag and great use of the gears.

  36. Yours looks great! Even though you may not have had all the products he used, you certainly captured the feel of his tag! I may even like yours better!

    For the first time ever I am trying his tags...I have made tags b4 and found them sort of therapeutic...I nned all the help I can get at the mo...so may make a few this year...teehee

  37. Goodness gracious and sakes alive -- Anne I wonder if you have any idea how talented you really are --- I have loved your tags since the first time I saw them. You are always creating something that is original and not strictly what Lord Tim says to do --- that is what I love most of all. I really want to learn that too. I adore this tag!!!!!!
