Tim Tag November 2013

My broken hip is a real nuisance and prevents me doing lots of things but I was not going to let it stop me from doing my Tim tag!!  I especially love this chalkboard technique that Tim taught us on Creative Chemistry 102 so I was pleased to see him using it for the November tag.

I don't have the leaf stamp that Tim used on his tag which you can see HERE.  I thought the technique would really suit the snowflake stamp from the Christmas Blueprints set. I thought it might help kick-start me into making some Christmas cards.....


I am not going to go through the whole technique because Tim explains it so well in his tutorial, but I stamped the snowflake onto the base tag and twice more onto black card.  I then fussy cut one whole snowflake and then the centre part of the second one.  I layered them up with silicone glue to give some dimension.


The sentiment was stamped onto black card and given the same chalkboard treatment, cut out and applied to the tag.  For some extra interest I added some of Tim's Remnant Rub snowflakes and to finish off I added an Ideaology 'Jingle' charm, a pearl and some sheer white ribbon.


I scruffed up the rest of the tag with the chalk to give a real chalkboard appearance.  Did I say how much I love this technique!  Here's another look at the finished tag.


Thanks so much for looking and thank you for your continued well wishes, it really does mean a lot and keeps my spirits lifted - you really are a remarkable tonic and a truly wonderful group of crafty friends.  Big hugs to you all,  Anne xxx

  18. Brilliant take on Tim's tag Anne - there is no stopping you at all! To be honest your chalkboard is so well done that it reminds me of being in a classroom - the thought of which has terrified me! Sending happy 'bone-knitting' thoughts your way. Gentle hugs, Nicola x

  22. Fabulous tag as always Anne, love this chalkboard technique. I was wondering what stamp I could use for this month's tag (I haven't got the leaf either) - you may just have solved my problem. Thank you so much xx

  23. Brilliant choice of stamp for this technique, Anne. Your tag is fabulous! So glad you managed to join in despite the hip, and I hope you are finding ways to do other important things too (whilst obviously avoiding all such dangerous things as housework, admin and so on and so forth).
    Much love,
    Alison xx

  24. I'm of the same opinion as Butterfly - more are but definitely no work - I'm sure that's what the doctor is saying too!
    I love the sparseness of your art. Graphic and interesting. I am seeing that chalkboard look pop up in so many places.
    Keep mending Anne!

  25. Yay how lovely to see you on your blog Anne and what a delightful tag to boot. You have really done a fantastic job with Tim's technique and the snowflake looks perfect. Hope it wasn't too hard to get this made and that you are still taking the doctor's orders to heart. Miss you around but want you fit and well before you venture back too much.
    Take care.

  35. Fantastic tag, Anne. Elegant, beautiful. Love your fussy cutting... you are very patient. The white ribbon and pearl are a perfect foil to your dark chalkboard effect. This technique looks very interesting... need to investigate further! Thank you again for your comments on my posts. I'm pleased to hear that you are improving and agree with Alison and Julie, that art is very important and much less dangerous than housework, cooking..... etc. etc. Healing thoughts being sent to you. Take care. Cheers, Di xx.

  36. I keep loosing my comment - let's try for the third time! Your tag is gorgeous and to tell the truth I like the snowflake better than a leaf. Such a gorgeous ribbon and the pearl and token are wonderful with this. Anne you are soooooo good. You think it is hard now - wait until you can start doing more but still not as much. And then time becomes more precious than it is now. From one limp along to another, your tag is wonderful!

  39. Anne you may be suffering with your hip yet your art is not suffering one little bit.
    Set against the black has such impact and brings a lovely contemporary vibe to your tag and that snowflake is splendid.

  41. Love your Christmas chalkboard style tag Anne, it's really effective. Black isn't a colour you normally associate with Christmas, but why not when you get a result like this,your embellishments are the perfect finishing touch too.
    Doing something you love does a heart good ! don't know about a broken hip mind ? lol.
    Take care

  45. Thanks for your visit, which is doubly appreciated, since I know your computer time must be limited with your hip recovery. Glad to see you are feeling able to channel TH just a bit, & what skillful use you made of your time! That snowflake must have been a chore to fussy cut. The card is beautiful, & I'm going to zip back later to your link (thanks for providing too!) and check out the video. Trying to catch up on some commenting before we leave for Fla. next week. Hope I can do some 'visiting' while I without my craft supplies. Always mean to, then we get busy, I get tired, lazy...ok, that's my excuses! You take care, don't get too impatient. And keep healing So happy you are able to be back in blogland for a little while. Miss you. Hugs

  50. Hello Anne. It is such a cold, gloomy day here. It's not even getting out of the upper 20s temperature wise today and we even had some sleet this morning. So....reading your comment totally brought some sunshine into an otherwise nasty day. :) Thank you so much for your sweet words! They mean so much to me and I'm so happy that you like my little perpetual calendar. It was fun to make and even figuring out all of the measurements; while challenging, was fun. Right now, I'm getting ready to decorate our big Christmas tree in the living room. The rest of the house is decorated for Christmas...my favorite time of the year! :) Have a wonderful week.
