12 Tags! Day 2

When I saw Tim's tag this morning all I could do was sigh and think "Beautiful". To me, it reminded me of a peaceful Christmas scene where the forest animals are looking up into the sky. Check out Day 2 of Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas here.

I started my tag following Tim's instructions best I could using the supplies and products I already have. Like yesterday, I'll just tell you what I did different and you can check Tim's blog for detailed instructions complete with step by step pictures. Of course if you leave a comment on Tim's blog, you'll be entered in a random drawing for a prize!

I do have a Tim Holtz deer die but it is the mini deer that came in a set with a 25. His is much larger. He only used one deer. I have used two. I adhered the sticky back canvas to some grungeboard and cut one out, but I also cut out the second one just from just the canvas. After inking them up, I adhered the single layer of canvas to the tag first and then added the second one that was canvas on grungeboard a little lower and to the right. I used glossy accents to sketch in the outline of a snow bank around their feet and sprinkled on some sparkly flock. I had made my own from Martha's white flock and Hero Arts Prisma Glitter when Tim Used Sparkly Fluff Day 6 2009. It gives just a hint of a snowbank.

The edging at the bottom of the tag is cut out of gold shimmer paper using Tim's Vintage Lace Sizzlits Decorative Edge. The top strip is acutally a piece above the laces.

On the "listen" metal tag I used The alcohol ink mixative Snowcap with bottle, lettuce and stream. I also spritz a little perfect pearl mist on the tag. The brads came in the color shown. The star is hand cut from Grungeboard then embossed with several layers of silver embossing powder and then a little glossy accents and prisma glitter. Such Fun!

I was going for a peaceful scene with the deers gazing up at the star, listening.
