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.

    It was wonderful to sit and view your photographs, absorbing all the details such as the stencilled background and your use of the Art Part.
    So much more than a tag!

  18. Das ist ein großartig gestaltetes Tag, mein Kompliment!
    Liebe Grüße, Bärbel
