Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013 - May Tag and Playing Catch Up!

I couldn't resist playing along after all.  I kept popping in on bloggers who where having such fun creating beautiful tags inspired by Tim's 12 Tags of 2013 that I just had to!!!!

Here is my tag for May.....


Although I didn't have Tim's rub-ons to try the resist technique he shows us this month, I did have some in my stash which worked a treat (eventually, as you will see in my video!).  I think the problem was one of size in relation to my tag.  I got there in the end though and I really love how this technique looks and will try it again (after a bit of rub-on shopping!)


I have decided to make a how I got from A to B video for each of my tags this year.  'A' being Tim's original tag and 'B' being my version of it. 


I think it should be quite interesting (I hope!).  I think May's video shows how each decision you make in the design process impacts on the next decision you take.  I think it illustrates what I love about this challenge and any other I have taken part in.  Whatever the challenge is no two crafters will end up at exactly the same point.


So here is the link to my May video.  Don't let this 12 minute video fool you this tag took me over 4 hours to make!!!.....and I enjoyed every single inky minute!  Thanks Tim.


I am a couple of months behind so this month I am also posting my February catch up tag.  I didn't have the stamp nor a Queen of Hearts card nor even an Ace of Hearts Card but I didn't let that stop me playing along as you can see!........


Might try this laced up detail again on something else........it looks so pretty.


 If my Ace had be Hearts and not Diamonds I may never have thought to do this pop up heart!


If you like my tag and want to see how I did it I made another A to B video.  Hope you find it interesting.



Inspiration from Tim and Interpretation from Me!

Thank you for popping by and a big thank you to Tim Holtz and his 12 Tags of 2013 X

  1. Beautiful tags, Helen! So much work - so varied and lovely!

    Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. I agree with you, some solicitors seem to delight in dragging their feet. I shall phone ours on Tues. and see if he's had any joy from the vendor's solicitor - we need to exchange contracts hopefully this week. I can't think what's holding things up so much! It's been a roller-coaster of a ride on both sale and purchase and I just want all the legal stuff out of the way, the transaction legally binding, and a swift resolution.

    So glad you like our kitchen plan, and my Zentangle takeaway box! I emailed the company this evening with a couple of pics - I wonder what they will think of it!
