Catch Up With Tim's Tags


Hi everyone, hope you are all indoors keeping warm and dry, and of course crafting.  The weather here is wet, wet, wet. The fields near our house where we walk the dogs are under water, so it is the beach for a few weeks.

As the weather has been so bad and Fergus is now back from the vet hospital, I have had time to catch up with Tim's Tags, two from 2013 and two for this year.  This has been great as it kickstarted my mojo which seemed to have deserted me.  I hope I can keep up this year and make a tag each month, we will wait and see, time seems to fly by I seem to have a lot less than 24 hours in each day!!

Here are November and December 2013 and this year's January tags:


and February's tag


As always there was improvisation, I tried to use up some of the bits I bought last year but did splash out on the frosting film and a splatter brush (which was an impulse buy but I love it).  February's tag was made using a home made heart stencil, some glitter I have had for about 10 years (unopened), an embossing folder instead of a stamp and for the bottom trim some heavy weight vellum (from my bits box) embossed and coloured.  My heart was cut from red card and curled a little as it dried, I should have used grunge board instead.
