My version(s) of Tim Holtz' 2010 12 Tags of Christmas. Check out the real ones on his blog.
The pics aren't the best, especially on #3 but they do show the detail of the tags. I've managed to get 4 done and hopefully sometime during January I'll have a go at the remaining 8. And I haven't checked out his ones from previous years yet. Based on this year's I can't wait to go for a good look. :-)
I'm gonna have another go at this one sometime. My petals weren't quite right and didn't want to scrumple quite the way I wanted to but I went with it this time. The grungepaper was covered in a canvas-type paper for inkjet printers. I think it may have made the petals just a bit too thick. I should look for some other stickyback canvas. Does it look like a poinsettia?? I used the texture fade technique again. Love it.
Again, I made a tracing from the photo. The main body part was easy, but the the arms??!!! Oh well, they turned out ok. The flash hides most of the acetate that covers the whole tag. That's what the brads are holding down. It was embossed with snowflakes. I added the snowflake thingies to the snowman 'cos he looked a little bare.
I had to make a lot of substitutions for the products used. I tried not to buy anything extra...although the little tree and star charms were bought 'specially for these as I didn't have anything else suitable. But I'm happy with the results and I just love the 3D detail of these tags. I hope you do to!
Have a very Merry Christmas and I'll catch you again very soon.
