Tim Holtz April Tags of 2015

Above are my April 2015 Tim Holtz tags.
You can check out Tim's April 2015 tags on his blog at:
When I first glimpsed Tim's tags for April, I was again blown 
away by the creativity, you know, his ability to come up with the ideas,
execute the techniques, and then to explain it so simply that I 
can actually try to recreate it.  I could actually see these flowers 
made larger, put in a frame, and placed on a wall in a room in my 
I fell in love with his "NEW" dies....I gotta have them..
don't you....
O K back to the tags.....
I changed a few things on my tags....I am after all a girl, and well
I like some shimmer and bling every now and them.
When using the watercolors on the flowers, I just had to add some 
Glam shimmer paint.  When the light hits the flower, you can see
it shimmer.  My photos didn't do a good job picking that up.  
But I know it's there..."GIRLY" stuff!
I also added a bling to the dot of the i and added Glam 
paint to make it and the star pink. For the tag I added gold alcohol ink to the
dot of the i and the star.....YES....creating every day makes me 
so happy....I am so GRATEFUL for Tim Holtz...such an
inspiring teacher....I never get tired of learning from him.
Oh this year is going by way too fast......
Thank you for visiting!!!


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my tag. Your water coloring is amazing, I love your tags. Shimmer is so hard to capture on camera so I know they are even more amazing than they look here.

    1. Ruby...I am so sorry I am just now responding to your comment...but my oldest son was in the hospital for most of May....He is doing soooo very well now which is a relief! Thank you for visiting and for the lovely compliments! I am having so much fun trying to create Tim's Tags this year as I have always wanted to do this.
