12 Tags of 2014 - May Tag Complete…..and new storage!!!!

I have been having a whole lot of fun with my May tag.  I loved the look of Tim's embellishment quilt.  I was very eager to give it a try but here I am just about making it before the end of the month!  So without further ado here is my tag.

It was fun to rummage through all my embellishments to find the perfect addition to this tag.  Mo can you spot your contributions!!!!  They were perfect and I just had to use them x.

As usual I have made a video recording my journey from Tim's inspiration to my interpretation.  If you watch the video you will see I tackled things slightly differently to Tim's tutorial but I think there is no doubting the original inspiration.  You can see I got my micro sewing machine out again.  It is 'sew' cute ;-)

Here is a look at another angle:

You can just make out the dandelion wishes captured in my mini glass vial (courtesy of a Pinterest idea).

Here is the video tutorial:

If you want to play along with this wonderful challenge where you receive inspiration from Tim Holtz every month then please follow this link.  You will see all the wonderful work his challenge inspires.  It is great fun and the perfect excuse to get out all your stash!

I also managed to get my tag storage for this years tag finished.  I decided to use a technique I learnt playing along with this challenge.  It was featured on Septembers 12 Tags of 2012 and here is the link incase you love it and want to try the technique for yourself.

I love my new storage because it is mobile!  I know you can now picture me wheeling this around my desk!!!! tee hee.  It is filling up nicely and May's tag joins the other tags on the rail.

If you want to make this project because you are a tag maker like me then please follow this link to my ETSY shop.  There you will be able to purchase the online workshop with full video and written/photographic instructions.  I will step you through the construction of this project so you to can display all your lovely tag works of art.  Alternatively you can purchase it from my side bar by clicking the Paypal button.

All purchases gratefully received ;-)  I am busy working on two other workshops one is a versatile mini album.  If you love Graphic 45 or Halloween you will love this workshop.  The second is one I have been working on for ages and have no idea why it is not already in my shop!  I think I keep interrupting myself with all my free videos!  I will never make a cut throat business woman.

If you want more ideas for the workshop above there are lots on this blog or over on my You Tube Channel and I will share more Tag Storage fun on my next post.  For now I am off to have a very late breakfast and to make sure my son is up and about!

I wish you all a creative week and thank you for popping by x
