Tim Holtz ~ 12 Tags of 2012 ~ March

I decided to join in with Lord Tim's 12 Tags of 2012...

It's so nice to join in at leisure instead of the rushing to get 12 tags done at Christmas. :)

My colours look a little dark, also used a different wood grain, which I decided to heat emboss to get fabby texture, forgetting to stamp the sentiment first doh! But think it worked alright I just heat embossed the sentiment as well!

Followed the directions fro the butterflies as instructed lol, had those things! But as I don't have cement antiquities embossing powder I opted for a more sandy looking grout and used distress ep, Mediterranean butterflies!

Now, for my foliage on the bottom area of tag I just had to try the enamelled effect with distress ep's.

It's great to see all the entries this month..

Wearable Art!


It's been quite a day here the weather can't decide to rain or snow... Definitely an indoors day and I actually managed a little crafting time! I worked on a tag for the Tim's 12 tags of 2012 but will blog about that soon, here's a piece that I made recently which fits perfectly with Grungy Monday 37: Tim Holtz Wearable Art!

This is a neck piece I've made using Tattered florals die, still one of my all time favourites. The larger flowers have been layered, it includes a rose creation and a few swirled roses. 
The layered flowers have a fringed centre.
Notice the papers mmmm, yummy ranger distress core'dinations, I have painted a sealer onto each flower petal, phew, I'm hoping it will keep the piece stronger and a little bit waterproof!
This is me wearing necklace, I have it on a chain that threads through the filigree shape.
Next is a little heart shaped brooch see two wearable art pieces...
Based on the necklace just with a different colour combination, love these colours and match distress inks perfectly.
This is a much clearer picture of the fringe centre.
And just because it's good to see here's what the back looks like, simply die cut from Tim's heart movers and shapers.

Well, I'm hoping to get a little more blog time in, frustrating that I have to download google chrome every time I want to post...

Have a wonderfully creative day,
BiG HuGs Kim :)
