January 2014 Tag

A new year has began and time for a new Tim Holtz's 12 tags for 2014. I've got to say I like this system better the the last. Although all the Christmas tags were wonderful because I got out more Christmas cards because I was was working daily. The one each month allows me to make something every month. I look forward to a new month because I like the challenges that Tim Holtz puts out there. This year I've decided to explore more paper crafting challenges. For right now though I'm showing you my entry for this months Tim Holtz's 12 tag 2014. I like using the foil sheets that inkssentials/ Ranger has out. I ran out though and was going to run down to my local craft store and grab some when my husband handed me a roll of foil tape. although thinner it is also fun to use. On this tag I used a lot of Idea-ology products. I used the large pocket watch die from sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations, All the gears, clock face, game spinners (which i used as the clock hands) , the black and beige trim, rub ons(top right corner) and the number stencil are all idea-ology. I went on quotes.com and found this quote "Lost time is never found again." by Benjamin Franklin. I used Glossy accents to make it shine. I have to tell you the peeling off of the foil from the grunge board took a little while, at one point I was tempted to just paint over it. oh I almost forgot I used Weathered Wood distress stain on my #8 tag. I know the picture has a little shadow play. I kinda like it though.
