May 2013 Tag

I've not been a good girl in following along with the Tim Holtz Tags of 2013. I only did one up to now. Which is partly due to the fact that I only found the Tim Holtz blog in march this year, but also due to the fact that I don't like being told what to do. I'm also very bad at doing exactly what people tell me to do. Specially when it comes to doing things for fun. I do, however, like learning cool new techniques, so that is the reason I wanted to try and follow along.

I didn't have most of the things Tim uses for his tag and as I didn't want to go out and buy them, but still wanted to stay close to the tag Tim made, I made them myself, sort of.

So here's my tag for may 2013.


I made the embellishments myself from soda cans and plastic packaging (cool way to recycle). The metal bits were made using Sizzix die cuts.
The filmstrip was drawn onto an acetate strip with a permanent marker. After which I scratched it somewhat and used sepia archival ink to give it an older feel.

Some more close ups of the tag.






In the end I like what came out of this. I did make several tags, but I like this one best. I most loved giving the brads, used to attach the metal bits, a wack with a hammer and a screw driver. Not so sure about my table though...

As you can see, I'm also preparing to follow along in the 4th anniversary ATC swap next week at the Stamping ground, but as this would be my first swap type thing, I'm not completely sure what is required. Ah well, I guess I will find out along the way.

For now I wish you a wonderful day, over here the sun has come out to play, so I think I will go out for a bit. If you have any questions, just let me know. I know my daughter has been telling me to make a youtube video, so maybe I'll do a tutorial on making the fimstrip. Or if you have anything you would like to see, just give me a shout.

Thank you all for watching and bye for now =)
