12 tags Christmas

Day 9 and Day 10 

I have managed to catch up again today with my tags I did Tag 9 this morning and Tag 10 and 11 this afternoon, I have had a lovely crafty day to unwind from the hectic week and friends visiting  yesterday  from Ireland.

Day 9

I love this technique and use it quite often so when  day 9 was posted on Saturday I was sorry I couldn't play straight away but with visitors looming within the hour I just had to resist......sorry for the pun lol............
I used peeled paint for the swirls and fired brick for the background and lastly vintage photo candle and the word peace as per Tim's instructions...... I think I have a new favourite glossy accents I can't stop using it.......will need another bottle soon!

Day 10
I didn't have any stamps large enough to cover the tag and I wanted to use music as a background so I cut my tag from  Tim Holtz  Kraft Resist Pad I adore this so much I can't bring myself to use it very often.......I know sad I am.......... and coloured the holly with pine needles and went over the tag with vintage photo to bring out the resist, then sprayed with perfect pearls gold, no facets either so I used fragments with TH stickers behind, banner was hand cut from tissue tape stuck to card first, I added picket fence distress stain all over the tape and left to dry then added vintage photo  to edges, word was painted in copper dapper paint, finally I added bells lace and tinsel..... so glad I bought the big pack of bells knew they would come in useful and they were a bargain at 0.99p ....I love a bargain.

Really enjoyed making these tags today revisiting techniques I haven't used for a while and as I said at the beginning I have also made tag 11 today's which is still drying and will have to wait to take a photo 'till tomorrow in daylight.  It was dark by the time I needed to photograph these two and the light just doesn't do the colours justice.

Hope you have had a good crafty time today with your tags .......or is it Christmas preparations.....I should have been making Christmas cards.......still have family ones to make.......oh well there is always tomorrow!!!

Bye for now

  2. I'm loving seeing all the different blogs following and making TH's 12 tags of Christmas . Frustrated at not being able to have a go myself but I'd still be on the first tag come February! Love your tag no 9 and will be back for tag 11,
    Hugs Mrs A,
