12 tags of 2014




Hi everyone, I'm popping on with my last minute April entry to Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2014.


I improvised with the items I used but really enjoyed the making of it and particularly trying the background technique and the grunge board technique. I used a Tim Holtz strip die in place of the one he used and cut it again from one of his patterned papers for the inside pieces. I don't have the pine cone die so I used the tattered garland die instead,

Hope you've enjoyed making your tag if you joined in.
