Many of you have been asking where are the 12 Tag of 2015 that I missed last year. I am afraid they are still missing in action but it is my intention to catch up with them and to share them with you.
This year I decided to play along a little differently with Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2016. Tim has decided to revisit and revitalise techniques from tags past! I am going to take his inspiration and turn them into journal pages (I have soooooo many tags!)
So each month I will add another page to my journal and at the end of the year I will show you how to bind them all into a gorgeous journal to celebrate a year of creativity.
Here is my first page (a little late!) Tim's tag was all about a chalkboard technique with some metal foil embossing. Here is what his tag inspired:
Each page will have a companion tag and on one side is a photo of the original inspiration:
You can see I have styled the tag to match the journal page and the other side of the tag will have a photo that was either taken in the month of the page or is a memory photo for that particular month.
I hope you enjoy following my 12 Journals of 2016 and here is the video of how I got from Tim's inspiration to my interpretation.
Page Size - 10 1/4" x 7" scored at 5" and 5 1/4"
Tag Size - 6" x 5 1/4"
As you will see I had a ton of creative fun and that is what Tim's challenge is all about. Follow this link to see what everyone else got up to. I was too late to add my link but I will be on time for February!! I should have that page up in a couple of days.
I'm off to dish up the tea now! Hope you enjoy following this journey and thank you for popping by X
