I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!!
This months tag for the Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2016 became a journey of cleaning out my craft room to find my shadow press station. So now with my room cleaner and my tools organized I got to work. I didn't have any Christmas shadow press. So I used Journey. Because at this time of year are we all not on some kind of journey? The hunt for the perfect gift, the adventure trying to find it at a good price, and the stress of getting it all done in time. All I can say is thank you Amazon prime. I got out my die cutting machine out ( vagabond) and cut two tags one for a base and the other out tim's textile surfaces ( burlap). got my holiday knit stencil and applied candied apple distress ink on the burlap. Now to crafting I then dug around and found several packs of Tim Holtz paper with Christmas themes to make my tiles with. I used bottle alcohol ink on and idea-ology star, applied some jute string and arrow from- yep idea-ology. I used a wreath and bells from my stash and more jute on the top. I wanted the journey to stand out more so I used red stickies to sparkle it up a little.
I hope you like it:
