Hello blog visitors, it’s a cold, wet Thursday night & I’m typing this while wrapped in a blanket, watching the Royal Institute Christmas lecture on BBC2.
The end of December is rapidly approaching so I wanted to show you the two tags I made following Lord Tim’s instructions in his 12 Tags of 2012 series. You can see Tim’s tags HERE.
Here are mine & once again, not having most of the items Tim used, I improvised. I loved using the metallic distress stains, there’s a lovely sheen to these tags in RL.
The little snowman is a Kanban stamp, as is the owl & the metal flower is from a set my mum gave me some years ago – I use them very sparingly.
I made my own journal ticket from kraft card & stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of green core’dinations. I do have a little of Tim’s printed tissue paper, but not the gorgeous poinsettia die, so I used a Crealies die instead. The flourish is from a Marianne Creatables die.
I have thoroughly enjoyed making these tags throughout the year & I hope Tim’s hectic schedule allows him to continue in 2013.
Thanks for looking. I hope that, after the Christmas busyness, you are having a relaxing few days. Until next time,
Love & light.
