Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014 - January

Hello peeps,
Well I have to say I am thrilled to have  made my FIRST Tim Holtz tag. I have wanted to join in the fun for some time but felt a little nervous when looking at everyone else's wonderful contributions. Any way I took the plunge and I really enjoyed myself.
For my first effort I tried to stick religiously to Tims tutorial, but had to improvise a bit as I didn't have the stamp he used or one that was suitable so I asked my friend google for help and created this quote in Microsoft word, my hubby added the clock for me which I really liked. I didn't have the Type charms or remnant rub numbers either so improvised again by creating the text in M Word  then punched it out and stuck it to the back of one of Tims sprocket gears, and finally stuck a Papermania domed sticker on the front. I couldn't believe my luck, it fit perfectly in the hole! The only other thing I did was to stamp some chevrons onto my trim as I thought it looked a bit plain.


I would just like to say a big thank you  Anne  for inspiring me, through your blog and beautiful pieces of art work, to try out for myself something new.
For all the other crafters out there who make and post their wonderful art creations in whatever form,
thank you :- To be inspired is great, to inspire is incredible !

I loved making Tims tag but it's made me realise my Tim Holtz list of  "things"  I  "need"  is gonna have to get a whole lot  longer lol.
Happy art making
Hugs to all

  2. Darnell is right, I am really proud and delighted that you have joined in dear Lottie, your tag is absolutely brilliant! I just love your improvisations (that is what it is all about really) and your pocket watch is just fabulous. Well done, I look forward to seeing 11 more this year now! Hugs, Anne xx

  3. You did a great piece, Lottie! And I totally love the quote, so true and inspired. Even for me it was the first time, I have very few stuff from Tim Holtz, but who cares, he says to try and have fun!
