If you've visited my blog recently, you know that I've been attempting Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas. So far, I've only done 5 (today's tag was Tim's 12th one - see all of them HERE), but I'm sharing with you my favorite so far. And let me tell you, for such a tiny project, it took a LONG time. This was the first time I've ever made 3D flowers, so it took me quite a while to follow all the directions - oh, and there's always the inevitable snag we run into when trying something new. I really love how this came out, though, and may even try it again! =D
I don't own very many "Tim things", so I had to do a lot of substituting. He used grunge paper and Perfect Pearls on his flowers; I subbed in watercolor paper, Pearl Ex mixed with gum Arabic + water, and Twinkling H2Os. He used a gorgeous script stamp; I subbed a text stamp from Unity; He used some music-themed dsp; I had NO black and white, so I created my own with a Unity background stamp. Tim used a cute little ticket embellishment; I made my own from scratch. He also used some Stickles on his roses, but I used shimmery paints to make the roses sparkle.
Thanks for stopping to visit today. Happy New Year, and enjoy the rest of your hop!
