Hi, guys! Hope all is well! I just finished my May Tag for the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2012. This month we learned how to use UTEE and turn paper flowers into porcelain-looking ones. It was my first time using my Melting Pot by Ranger. It was a lot of fun. We also utilized sewing patterns as backgrounds. If you know me personally, you know I don't sew a lick. My hubby gave me a couple from his late mother's collection. I thought that was sweet and now I will think of her when I look at this tag.
I am enjoying making these monthly tags as I love learning new techniques. I like to use what I have on hand, so my tag is not identical to Tim's, but that is part of the fun. Tim used a wooden spool to put his flowers in like a vase. I could see me losing a digit or two trying to sand down a wooden spool, so I turned my flowers into a corsage.
If you haven't tried making some of these tags yet, I would recommend you give one a try. It is always a lot of fun and you will get......INKY!
Have a great day!
