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.
