12 Tags of Christmas – Day 1 and 2

I love following Tim Holtz as he produces twelve tags each December.  I made them for the first time last year and just love all the techniques he so willingly shares.

I will post them up 2 days at a time.

Day 1:

December 012

I don’t have Tim’s dies so I altered a cutting file from Silhouette (Haunted House) and scored the weatherboards rather than using strips of grunge paper.  The fence was a free download file I have had for a couple of years – no idea now where I got it from.

The wreath is one of those cheap Xmas earrings and the tag I printed and cut on the Silhouette as well.

Day 2:

December 015

I don’t have anything remotely close to the pinecone stamp that Tim used but I did find this bird on a branch so figured that would have to do.  The pearl charms and the silver “wings” are made from junk jewellery.  The sentiment was printed from an installed font on my computer.
