tims tags april 2014

Hello there - how are you? We're good - had a lovely visit to Lancaster Castle today. It was used as a prison until recently but the tour focused on all sorts of things - cells, magistrates court, the castle in former times and even the Pendle witches - so all in all it was a very interesting afternoon. The girls had fun too. And my mum!

Today I've got my Tims Tag for this month to share with you. I've followed most of the techniques shown on timholtz blog. Here's Tim's tag:

and here's mine:


I decided I wanted to go with the colour scheme of lilac and purple so as I worked through the steps \I kept this in mind. I didn't have any tissue tape - so I used tissue wrap. The papers I used were all Tim Holtz but none of them were as Tim used on the original tag.


I didn't have the pinecone die to make the same flowers so I used the tattered florals and tattered leaves. I used mowed lawn and dusty concorde to colour the flowers.


I also didn't have the mirrored stuff that Tim used so I cut some aluminium with the die and added this to the lattice centres.


I also didn't have any of the rounded tags so I used a bar tag.

Considering I only had the lattice die for this tag I think I improvised well - I love this tag of Tims and this is probably one of my favourites I've done too so far! 

I'd like to enter this into timholtz 12-tags-of-2014-april.

Thanks for visiting today and i hope to see you again soon! 

Big hugs
