I Said I Wouldn't Do This!

Ok, I was talked into creating a blog to showcase my creativity. I have been resisting this for far too long, but now is the time to finally get the ball rolling.

So here goes. Come with me on my journey into creativity.

12 Tags of Christmas - Day 7

We're winding down to the homestretch.  Today is day 7 of the 12 Tags of Christmas .... following along with Tim Holtz.  I'm so proud of myself in able to keep this up.  Nothing else is getting done.... lol.... but at least I know that I will have accomplished this task at hand.  I am learning all sorts of new techniques that I've never tried out before.  You really need to go to his blog and see the tags that he is creating.  So go here.... Tim Holtz.

So today's tag used a lot of different techniques, and again, I'm without a lot of the items that he used.  Now if someone would like to gift me with any Tim Holtz supplies.... I would graciously accept them.  He  cut flowers and leaves using sticky backed canvas ..... now where can I find some of that locally.  I had an appointment to take my mom to, so on the way home we have to pass Michael's... so  I stopped in there very quickly.  They didn't have that, but what I found was some Canvas paper by Strathmore and thought I could see about making this work as an alternative.  The other thing that I didn't have is the wood grain folder that Tim used to emboss the tag with.  But have no fear, I used another one..... "Rays".  I should have taken a picture of the tag before I embellished it, but oh well.... I'll have to remember to do that next time.

I'm still in search of the Rock Candy Distress Stickles.  It's on my wish list.
Again, I used my cricut to cut out different elements that I needed for this tag.  This time, I used the font from Hannah Montana cartridge, and the flowers were cut from Accent Essentials.

So without further ado once again, here's my day 7 tag.
