I can't believe that June is almost over and I
am just now completing my January Tag.
I am just so happy I finally made the tag as
I fell in love with the entire process of creating it.
When I began making the tags for this year,
January just flew by and I wasn't able to make mine
in time to post. I always knew I wanted to change mine up
a little bit. With January celebrating the beginning of a new year,
I really wanting to create an impression of fireworks.
I love fireworks....it is just a beautiful explosion of
color in the sky for everyone to "AHHH" over.
So that is how the idea of my tag developed.
Here is my version of Tim's January 2015 Tag.
I made my background following Tim's
directions. Then I got to work
using Tim's Label Die: #660060.
I am really loving this die and finding it very
versatile. I used some scraps of black and gray card stock
and gold shimmer paper to cut out the
design shapes for the fireworks. I off set the shapes
as I layered the design and of course I inked and distressed
everything! For my numbers I drew them on chipboard and
hand cut them out. Then for the five I used the glitter,
and for the one I used layers of paint and finished with a
coat of Glossy Accents. I used a Vial Label behind the one,
inked it with Walnut Distress Ink, and stamped
Jan on it and used a fine black sharped to make
some small dots under the month. I used a small brad
and a gear on the smallest firework.
I also added some bling ...a little extra ohhh and ahhh!
For the chit chat stickers, I put them inside a Sizzix
Frame, Stamp Combo die. I backed it with chipboard,
painted and distressed it, Glossy Accented, and used
twine and a Hitch Fastener for a knob to hang
it on. In the center I distressed the itty bitty heart brad my
girlfriend gave me from her stash. I followed
Tim's directions on the twenty. After everything was
adhered to the page, I then continued to layer with
Tarnish Brass Spray Stain, some Picket Fence
(I splattered with an old paint brush) and some Walnut
Distress Ink and Spray Stain. I was heavy on the tarnished
brass spray, but I was really happy with the look of this tag
when I was finished
Supplies I didn't use:
Arrow, star, spritzer, splatter brush, Krylon gold leafing
pen, and I used the Vial Labels not the Index labels.
I was at a girlfriend's house and
didn't have all my product I wanted to use for this tag.
However, I was really pleased with the outcome.
It turned out totally different from ANYTHING I
have ever made before....probably the most
distressed look of anything I have done.
I really got into it....
This tag was all about the layering
of color, expressing a fireworks display, and making
it SHIMMER! I wish you could see it for real, because
I don't think my picture did it justice.
I am loving my January Tag!!!!!!
