Hello blog readers. I am so happy to be back blogging. I came down with a nasty summer cold Monday and today was the first day I could actually think and see straight enough to create.
A lot of exciting things happened while was sick. First, I received a very sweet thank you card from my girlfriend’s daughter who graduated from high school this year. Her thank you card included,”your card was the coolest card I have ever received and I am going to keep it and put it in my scrapbook”. She is such a sweetheart and I am certain thatshe will do great as she heads to college in the fall.
Second, each month I have been diligent to complete Tim Holtz’s Tags of 2012. Click here to be redirected to Tim’s site for each month. Each month’s featured tag is chocked full of techniques and/or insightful ways of using a current or newly released product. Each participant can opt to upload their entry using a inlink tool on Tim’s website. Then at the close of each month, Tim selects a certain number of tags and each of these tag’s creator’s receive a package of goodies from Tim himself. Drumroll please……..I was one of the winners for June. I was so excited and have already contacted Mario, his assistant, to receive my goodies.
I copied and pasted the text from Tim’s site below:
congrats to the winners from the june 12 tags of 2012 gallery posts. if you see your name below and it links to your tag, please contact email@example.com to claim your prize!
Lastly, for great news. I have been contacted by a publisher who is interested in using one of my featured projects in their upcoming magazine. I am still awaiting to hear about the final details, but what great news to hear when you are under the weather.
So onto today’s featured tags. Today’s tags are inspired from Tim Holtz. Directions for the tags can be found on his website, click here to be redirected.
The first one is my official entry. I followed his directions rather closely and only changed up a few of the embellishments to what I had on hand.
I also did a second tag wondering what it would look like without use of compressed air and instead use my alcohol ink felt applicator tool. My results are below.
Here they are side by side.
It is hard for me to decide if I prefer one tag more than the other. I would love to hear what you think. Simply leave me a comment below, and as an added bonus and to celebrate my win. I have 2 unopened sets of Tim Holtz Distress Inks your choice of Fall 2011 or Winter 2011. I will draw 1 winner at the close of July.
Lastly, I invite you to subscribe by email if you would like to stay informed each time I post a new, inspiring project. Thank you for taking time to visit and I hope that you will come back again real soon.
