Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014


Hi everyone, I hope you're well and enjoying the weekend. Managed to get the May Tim tag done today and although I don't have a huge amount of the more decorative ideology pieces, I did have enough to complete the tag. This time everything on the tag is a TH item which I think is a first! Tim Holtz's tag for May can be found here.



I didn't have the letterpress folders so I improvised with the wordplay die and cut the letters from chipboard and then cut them again from black card so that I could create a shadow effect by overlaying them. I chose paper from the TH Menagerie paper pad and created my distress ink background to match the floral parts of the paper in tattered rose, mowed lawn and mustard seed.

I'm enjoying the tags I've managed to do so far although I still have a couple that I need to post that were made but not in time to add to Tim's site. If you've been joining in with this I hope you're enjoying it too.

Great work Chris! I have always been curious about TH press but it seems like a money pit so I have hesitated to get it. Do you own one?
