TIO #63 - Aspect of Trees


Well, here we are with the last tag challenge of this year... I am giving you till the first Wednesday of the new year (5thJanuary) to take up this challenge. I have been making this beaded Tree of  Life pendent and so have printed a background to compliment it... It is made of silver wire and amazonite chips. I made a tag with some Sir Tim ideaology paper and Judykins stamps, particularly winter tree. The distress inks are forest moss and brushed corduroy.

So, set off dreaming a tag on some aspect of trees, from christmas trees to whatever... please use at least one real stamp, and thanks for all your support this year.....enjoy!!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

TIO #62 - Golden Haze

Hi... sorry I am a bit late. The tag was done but not uploaded and I went shopping and lunching with my daughter... shame she is not on top form, but great we get to have girlie times together - totally invaluable!!! Best chrimble pressie ever,,,

Anyway, enough rambling and on to the tag for this week. You all did super stuff last time and I am hoping you can squeeze me another dream, this time to be golden... so make a tag in a golden theme, with perhaps a couple of accent colours... I used Sir Tim's wild honey and brushed corduroy, with black ink and creamy white/gold starflake... that is made from friendly plastic. The frill is some of Sir Tim's music tape, and I used the same stamp as last week, as you all said you liked it so much... left more of it for you to see this time. Topped it all off with gold chain, a few beads and a tiny bell. Please use at least one real stamp and ENJOY!!!!
Love and Light

TIO #61 - Sir Tim Inspired Embellishment

 Good afternoon... well, are you being inspired?? I certainly am, and wish I had started to have a go from the beginning, but just had too much else to do... I am sure you don't need me to explain that I am talking about Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas. !!! This link is up to date as of now... day 8. So the TIO challenge this week is to create a Chrismas tag, with at least one really truly stamp, but adorned with Tim Holtzian influenced embellishment(s)...

I had a go with the Christine Hellmuth sticky backed canvas and the colour washes, plus Glitz Spritz from Jill, at the Stampman.. The flowers are from a couple of sheets by Elusive Images... The stamp is a Christmas collage called Holiday Pear. I suppose I could have added some sparkle... well I might just go and do that now...

So there you have it... I am realy hoping you all find time to join in and have a go... ENJOY!!!

TIO #60 - Time Flying for Christmas

Here we are with another landmark TIO...that is the 60th!! I do want it to continue, but we have dwindled such a lot recently... my fault perhaps for being poorly then on holiday but what do YOU think, dear dreamers???

On a more positive note, the winner of the East competition was Neet of Hickorydorums, so well done and look out for the prize of that wonderful plate designed by our friend Jo.

I was very peased with the mix of stamps on this tag... 2 from Sir Tim and one from PaperArtsy, which was actually a freebie,  a great one to get given.... and so the theme is about the time flying quickly towards Christmas... ie Christmas with the TIO twist!!!  Please include at least one stamp and ENJOY...
