I doubt there is anyone who is following Tim's 12 Tags of 2015 who did NOT like his March Tag and all the vibrant lovely colors of this! All I could say was "WOW"! And like most of the rest, I could hardly wait to get going. Yeah- I checked in and found a ton of ppl already posted theirs while I am thinking I'm earlier than my usual 'always late'. ;) So here's what I came up with after ditching my first design idea of a bird getting outside its cage. Since I'd just done a project with the same idea, I wasn't so hot on it. But the more I thought about it, the wilder my idea got and I ended up with two tags that are pretty cool, I think!
|Here's my entry photo. The tag on the left- "HOPE" is for my own collection, while the tag on the right- "WISH" is for a Bestie whose birthday was just yesterday. (No, I didn't miss it!)|
|Actually, I ran into a HUGE PROBLEM. I started out pretty good as you can see...|
|Here's where I took a coupld of IdeOlogy Enameled Tags and stuck a few Remnant Rubs onto them. I keep all the odds and ends of the Numbers Rubs because you never know where you can stick those into a design like I did here.|
|It was at this point I gave up ENTIRELY on those first two tag fronts. So, back to the Craft Sheet, so to speak. And frankly, I was much more pleased with this second set than I was with the first as far as colors go!|
|After I have a pattern, I save it on my files for future use. All I need to do later is just add the photos I want. Here's the finished vellum for this project, ready for cutting and using some GAccents to put together.|
|And HERE'S the wheel! This one's for my own- you can easily see me standing in front of the ocean from one of last year's 6 trips to Florida's Emerald Coastline. And my Hunni Pi's face nosed right up to my camera, too!|
|I added as many pics of all us Besties together as I could find right off, some of her kids out here in the pool, and some of the stuff the ChiefHubby and I attend with them. Their kids are kind of like our adopted Gandkids.|
|Here's what the backs look like. Just simple, but cute.|
|The results of the technique of paste and embossing powder is nothing short of REALLY COOL looking stuff!|
|I took the tags outside after I got them done (just 14 hours ago), and put them up against the sunlight...COOL!|
What a fun tag this one has been- even though it took me two times to get it right, practice makes perfect. Thanks so much for taking a look at my March Tag, and I hope to be looking at YOURS posted onto Tim Holtz's Blog as the month goes on! Until next time; Happy Blogging !!
