May 2013 Tag

I’ve not been a good girl in following along with the Tim Holtz Tags of 2013. I only did one up to now. Which is partly due to the fact that I only found the Tim Holtz blog in march this year, but also due to the fact that I don’t like being told what to do. I’m also very bad at doing exactly what people tell me to do. Specially when it comes to doing things for fun. I do, however, like learning cool new techniques, so that is the reason I wanted to try and follow along.

I didn’t have most of the things Tim uses for his tag and as I didn’t want to go out and buy them, but still wanted to stay close to the tag Tim made, I made them myself, sort of.

So here’s my tag for may 2013.

I made the embellishments myself from soda cans and plastic packaging (cool way to recycle). The metal bits were made using Sizzix die cuts.
The filmstrip was drawn onto an acetate strip with a permanent marker. After which I scratched it somewhat and used sepia archival ink to give it an older feel.

Some more close ups of the tag.

WOYWW 206

Just a short post to join in with the “What’s on your workdesk wednesday” over on the Stamping ground blog. No 206 this time. I’m afraid I skipped No 205, while my mother was here. Which is a pity, because the exploded dining room table was a real sight for sore eyes =).

This time I managed to clear my table before making a picture.

It’s a lovely spot to sit, work, stare out the window and listen to the birds whistle, while the garden comes back to life. From this spot I can overview the entire livingroom and the garden, nicely tucked into my little corner.

And yes, should you wonder, that is a pirates flag there in the border among the plants.

As you can see I did clean up a little. There are two projects on my table. Some tags I wanted to do for the Tim Holtz tags of may challenge and a sneak preview of a new journal page I’m working on. But since these are not ready yet I cannot show them to you in this post… maybe later today.

I did however destroy another background, as I told you I challenged myself to do in my previous post.

12 tags of 2013 – march

Stepping right out of my box here and entering my first project specifically made for a challenge. Allthough I like creating with a goal I’m not one to compete much, let alone to set myself up for competition in such a talented community… but then I decided things had to change, I have to change, so no more self imposed restrictions and just let my inner creative spirit run wild… and enter a challenge.

So yeah, I made a tag for the 12 tags of 2013 – march – Tim Holtz challenge. I was a bit intimidated by all the talented entries, but once I got going, it didn’t matter anymore.

Here is my interpretation of Tim’s Spring Bunny Tag.
