Tim Holtz Tags of 2014-January

Hi Everyone...............I always love the weekend and especially when I have some crafty time :-)
Today I am sharing my take on Tim's January Tag. Although I did not have all the elements that Tim used I was able to improvise and I am delighted with the result.

You can find Tim's tag and his tutorial by clicking HERE. 
 Unfortunately I only have the small version of Tim's Sizzix Pocket Die, so I thought I could perhaps alter his Sizzix Alarm Clock die, which you can see below. It was pretty large when placed on the size 8 tag and so I decided to use Wendy Vecchi's Art Parts Pocket Watch
I also used another of Tim's embossing folders :-)
You can see the bottom of my tag and  the distressed  TH Adage Ticket as well as TH stencil's and a stamp from Tim's Stamper's Anonymous Small Things set
At the top of my tag, you can see that I used another of the SA Tiny Things stamp and a Time rub on. 
To trim the top of my tag I used some of Tim's Tissue Tape as well as an Idea-ology trinket and key.
 The photograph below is of  the centre of my tag before I splattered it with paint.
 Thank You so much for taking the time to view and comment on my take on Tim's  January Tag. I know how difficult it can be to manage your own time and I  really do appreciate your visits.
See you Tuesday with my DT make x

Sending you huge crafty hugs xx

  1. Annie...your Tim style January tag looks really cool! I love the alarm clock die cut that you used on yours. Your background with the sepia tones stenciled in and black stamped on top is very striking. I also love the metallic embellishments. They really finish off your tag perfectly. I also wanted to thank you so much for the very sweet comments you left on my blog regarding my last post as a member of Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I look forward to the new twist in this art journey we're all one. <3 Candy

  2. This looks totally fabulous Annie, love how you adapted the original!! Believe it or not, I just finished mine five minutes ago, and guess what? I used the Wendy art part too because I did not have the die, - telepathy or what? Mine looks quite different though luckily..... I love your version and how you finished the whole thing, it looks greaT!!

  4. Fab improvising with the watch frame, and I love your grungy background with the fantastic layered stencilling. Great take on the tag, Annie - hope you're having a lovely Sunday!

  12. Your take on Tim's tag is fantastic Annie, I love Wendy's Art Parts and you have certainly put it to good use on your tag. Great improvising - sometimes I am glad not to have all the things needed because it makes me 'think' how I can adapt it. I love the wonderful background, your splatters look amazing - I think this is my new favourite technique! Also love the binoculars and the bee - great finishing touches. Hugs, Anne x

    So much more than a tag!
