The comments will be moderated so you will not be able to see the answers. You MUST enter the challenge and link your creations with the Inlinkz on the Stamp and Show Challenge to be able to win the Grand Prize or any of the $25 vouchers. You do not HAVE to comment on all the DT blogs but we would appreciate any comments you would like to leave.
For my project, I made a Christmas tag triptych using many Tim Holtz techniques. I went through his blog and looked at the past 12 Tags of Christmas for inspiration. Drawing from his work and techniques, I designed my tags using his new Christmas set Mini Holidays 3 and an older set Mini Holidays. I also used lots of his products including distress inks and the On the Edge Snow Flurries and Tag and Bookplates dies. Even though I drew inspiration from Tim, I feel that the work is entirely my own - it has a very Funkie Junkie spin to it. In fact, I have decided to create my own 12 tags, adding another nine to this piece over the next couple of months. Sound like fun? Maybe you'd like to join in with me - stay tuned for details.
I would appreciate a comment if you would like to leave one and just a note to my regular readers - I left out all the details of the techniques and materials used here. I know that blog hoppers really want to grab the essence of the post and move on so I didn't want to hold hoppers up with the myriad of deets. For inquiring minds that want to know, see my post below dated August 31st.
That wraps up my part of the hop. Thanks for stopping by. From here you need to go to the amazingly talented Marcea's blog for more inspiration.
