Tim Tag April 2016

Hello Friends!

It is no secret, I love doing Tim tags, usually I don't have some (or all) of the items 
that Tim does and I have to 'adapt and overcome' as my lovely friend Kath calls it!
Well, not so this time!  I have everything - I have not used the bird die before so it was an
ideal time to get him out and use him.  There are a few photos to show you the process, you
can see Tim's original tag HERE.

This is my effort.

I had a slightly different idea for the mosaic, I just managed to get the new Mixed Media #3 
set which includes the brick wall die and also one I think looks like mosaic.  I die cut the bird,
and die cut some Carte Postale paper.  I grouted the die cut bird.
While the grout was drying I prepared the tag and the Distress Woodgrain Cardstock part.
Once the grout was dry, I applied the mosaic elements using the Mosaic Glue.  I really
like the look of the die cut mosaic elements!
I used the Distress Glaze on top of the mosaic pieces and then assembled the tag.  To keep in
with the air mail theme of the Carte Postale papers, I attached a small Idea-ology piece (with the
word AIR on it) to an Idea-ology arrow, using thin wire from my stash.
Here is the completed tag, with some added stitching.


When I was photographing the tag I noticed that part of the mosaic paper has given
the bird an eye!

As always, thanks for looking, I hope to see you again soon!

Hugs, Anne xx

  3. Love it!!! Great idea to use the mixed media die for your pieces. I'm sure you must have been thrilled to see the eye - we often don't truly see our projects until they've been photographed xx

  8. Your tag is great Anne! I love that you used the die for the mosaic cuts! Very clever. I am waiting for this die and I am not a fan of cutting for the mosaic look. Great tip around that.

    The little bird just looks amazing and he really looks like he is going to strut right off the tag. Did I say I love it. lol

  12. Oh my gosh, this is stunning, Anne!! Your take on Tim's tag is perfect!! The bird looks amazing!! I love the added stitching!! I just finished my tag and I'm the exact opposite of you this month - I didn't have any of the products!! I had to improvise everything. I don't even know if I'll post mine...I want to play along every month but this one is a bad one for me, especially after I see this gorgeous creation!! Love it!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

  20. Great take on Tim's tag - better than his in my opinion. Love how you used the die to get your mosaic bits and your perfect placement to give that bird an eye. The word AIR is great too because it adds another bit of colour.
    Hugs!

  33. The wood graining on the tag looks way too realistic. I wanted to touch it! Love your grouted bird, and how clever of you to create his 'eye'. You always have just the perfect embellies to enhance your project, and the little Air tag was so cute. Love to read all the how-to and then see your finished project.

Love the "air" trinket, and your "wood" background turned out beautifully! sorry I'm late commenting! I could have swore I commented before. Perhaps it is that Internet goblin I've been dealing with!
