It's been another fun year following Tim's 12 Tags. Each month we've been treated to inspiration from the master himself, with step by step instructions to help us to create our own versions.
When I saw December's tag I couldn't wait to give it a go ....... the Tattered Poinsettia is one of my favourite dies and I loved the idea of using the Frosted Film with the Clearly for Art - what a combination!!
This is Tim's tag ....... how gorgeous is this ......
and here's mine ...... my favourite one of the year ......
The colours are a lot more intense in the flesh ....... I just couldn't capture them properly on camera.
Using the Frosted Film with the Clearly for Art gives a fabulous finish to the poinsettia and it's so much fun when you heat it up...... a bit like shrink plastic except it doesn't shrink, but you can mould it into any shape you like. And the beauty of it is if you don't like it once it's cooled, just heat it up again.
I added a couple of holly leaves in there and some ribbon, and finished off the centre with a festive bell.
I must admit my splattering technique needs a bit of work, and I didn't have Tim's sentiment stamp (another one to add to the shopping list) but I think the one I've used says it all .......
Well that's it ....... the 12th Tag of 2013. I do hope we can do it all again next year ....... and who knows I may just get some of them done with a bit more time to spare.
Thanks for popping by ........ I'll be back tomorrow with the final part of My Favourite Makes of 2013. Enjoy your day.
Cheerio for now
