Tim Tag July 2015

Hi Everyone

Just a quick (well reasonably quick) post from me today to share my Tim tag for July.  To see Tim's wonderful tag and how he did his, look HERE.

I made several starts on mine, I don't have the stamps Tim used, so tried lots of other designs before I settled on a seaside theme (no surprised there then!).  I used the same techniques that Tim did, just different colours and stamps.  

I also added a couple of 'altered surfaces' to my tag which falls in nicely with the lovely Linda Ledbetter's Compendium of Curiosities III challenge #33, which is to use Tim's Altered Surface technique found on Page 45 of Tim's CC3C book.  If you still need a copy you can buy one direct from Tim here.


For the base colours I used Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon.


The elements were coloured with Distress Markers.  The hanging star is one of my altered surfaces.


The number 1 is my second altered surface.  

CC3C #33 is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium and this is my DT piece for Inspiration Journal.  Inspiration Emporium are offering a very generous $50 voucher for one randomly selected individual to spend in their on-line shop.  Their shipping rates are excellent - $5 in the USA and $10 to Europe.

Tim and Mario are also offering a fabulous prize of Tim Holtz goodies to one individual selected as the favourite by the talented Curiosity Crew.

Thanks for looking, hope to see you again soon - in fact I hope you will come back
on Tuesday as I have some very exciting news!

Hugs, Anne xx

  11. Hi Anne. Love your take on Tim's July tag! The three panels of the blueprint images are lovely. Great job of coloring and coordinating them. I also love your hanging star and "1" that you've altered the surfaces of for our challenge. They really work beautifully with the theme of your tag. The machine stitching really finished everything off nicely. Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
