Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015-January

I know...can you believe two posts in the same day!   I'm back to post my version of Tim's January Tag.  You can see his step by step here.   I love the sparkle of Tim's tag but varied my tag to incorporate blues and violets. colors that remind me of winter.

 I started following Tim's instructions using Postal Tissue Wrap (thanks to Tim and Mario for the December tag prize stash) and Glue n' Seal.  I finger painted with Salty Ocean, Pumice Stone, and
Dusty Concord Distress Paints.

I still don't own any Distress Stain Sprays, so I used Vintage Photo Distress Stain misted with water.  I really didn't like the yellow tones that resulted so....
I added more distress paint and then used Broken China Distress Stain....much better.

I followed the rest of Tim's instructions, substituting Brushed Pewter for Tarnish Brass Distress Paint and Pumice Stone for Tarnished Brass Glitter.

I loved using the Chitchat Stickers to convey my thoughts about the New Year.  A stamped clock with clock hands made from Game Spinners and 3 Mirrored Stars tinted with Mermaid Alcohol Ink rounded out my tag embellishments.

Looking forward to February's tag...just a day away.  Thanks for stopping by :)
