A Vintage Journey - Tim Tag for Tag Monday

Over at A Vintage Journey we are having a Tag Monday and some of us are showing our Tim Tags for January and some of the Creative Guides are showing other wonderful creations.

You can see Tim's original tag HERE.  If you have not seen his original yet, please have a look as he uses some great techniques on his tag this month.  Here's mine:

I am not going to repeat the techniques here but I did change my base colours to Evergreen Bough and Peeled Paint Distress Paint and I don't have the new Postale Tissue Wrap so I used Composer Tissue Wrap instead.

Other than the changes above and a couple of placements,  I did stick pretty much to Tim's methods.
I love the way the white paint splatters show up against the darker background.  There are gold flecks in there too but the camera has not picked those up so well.
I do love the Idea-ology stars and arrows, so I just had to add them too.  So there we have it, the first Tim tag for 2015.  I am really looking forward to the tags this year, it is bound to be very interesting bearing in mind the new stamps, paint and papers that Tim introduced us to through CHA.

Don't forget there is still a day or two left to join in A Vintage Journey's current challenge - Use A Portrait, we would love to have you join in with a Tim inspired creation!

Thanks for looking, I hope to see you again on Tuesday.  Hugs, Anne xx

  22. Just delete the above Anne - just wondering if you could reply to the e-mail when I comment. If not, I do not know how to fix it.
    Well you are definitely off and running with a new year and Tim's Tags and you have one fantastic book to keep them all in, not to mention that stand you made. I am just going to be spying for a while and not posting. Will fill you in at another time.
    Sandy (thanks for your patience with all my tests!)

  36. It's stunning, and I love those outstanding dimensional words. All the word art was so right with the 21 embellishment, and the spatters looked terrific. (the white showed great, not seeing the gold but know it's equally pretty!). You channel TH in the most marvelous ways. I hope he sees your work too! TFS & Hugs
