Time for my November tag for Tim's 12 Tags of 2016. I love the remnant rub resist technique and have a few versions of this month's tag in progress. Here is one that I am finished with. I love this little deer and hope you do too!
Down to the wire on my October Tim tag! I wanted to play around with this technique all month and finally got to it last night. I always loved the Patchwork Collage technique, and mixing it with a monster was super fun. I love the metal look, but decided to make this vampire a bit different by adding some paint to his face and clothing and varying the texture on his hair and clothing. Hope you like him!
Another month almost over, and time for another Tim tag! I had to try this one a few times to get it just how I wanted it, but in the end, I love the light colors and the contrast of the dark flowers. Hope you do too :)
It's the end of the month, and my June Tim tag is done! I had a lot of fun with this one (even though I do not sew) and made a rainbow plaid. In the end, I only used a bit of it on my project, but I will definitely will use the rest for something else real soon!
Here's a closer peek at the fun rainbow plaid fabric sheet. I have a feeling I will be making a few more of these...
Another tag just in time for the end of the month! I have been able to make all of my Tim Tags of 2016 this year, even if they all are cutting it close. This one has a bit of a "manly" feel to it, and I love the texture and the colors and the extra something you get with the addition of the Tarnished Brass Distress Spray Stain.
Here's a close up of all that texture and spray on the top:
And all the fun Idea-ology goodness on the bottom:
After a ton of catching up on life and cleaning out in the crafty space, I'm back to creating. No better way to get inspired than creating my Tim Holtz tag for April. I am totally in love with the woodgrain paper and can't stop making tiny little mosaic pieces. For this month's tag, I made a little seahorse and turned the grain on the woodgrain paper in the opposite direction to make some "waves". I created a few more waves using some Industrious stickers colored with alcohol inks. And the shiny background on my tag? Let's just say I may have gotten carried away with the Distress Mica Spray!
This week the theme for the challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog is April Showers bring May flowers. Our April has been really cold so far, so I decided to skip right ahead to the flowers!
I wanted to achieve a painty look with these Winnie and Walter In Bloom Annas Floral stamps. I painted my tag with a layer of Dylusions paint in Calypso Teal. I then stamped my flower images in white ink, and painted over them with other colors of Dylusions paints. Once the paint was dry, I stamped over the painted images in Archival Black ink.
Be sure to stop back and play along with us in a new challenge each Monday!

We are in the middle of moving, but I did make my Tim tag for January right before I packed up the craft room, and wanted to share before it was too late! I love the idea of remixing the techniques, and can't wait to see what is in store for the rest of the year!
It's been a really busy month at my house, but I still wanted to make time to create my Tim tag for this month. I had so much fun making these paint resist backgrounds that I wound up making three tags! I am trying to make gift tags in advance for the holidays, so all of my tags have a Christmas theme.
The first is a fun snowman using the Holiday Knits stamps as a background:
The second is a super sweet tag with a plaid pattern from the Plaid & Nordic set:
Not sure Tim would approve, but here's a tag for the naughty folks...
