I going to try to keep up with Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2016 this year cuz I wasn't so good about it last year. This year Tim is taking a unique approach...he is revisiting two prior tags and merging the techniques in new and interesting ways.
For the January tag Tim revisited his Chalkboard Technique and Industrious Metal Technique. You can read all about Tim's tag here.

I've always end up using white embossing powder on my image and then going over the cardstock with chalk to fake the look. This time I didn't even have any of the Frosted Crystal-my dog knocked over the jar last time I was using it- so I went straight to the white embossing powder. Yes, it feels like I cheated... but then again I wasn't a stressed out frustrated mess at the end either.
For the Industrious Metal Technique I didn't have the embossing folder Tim used so I turned to my favorite ones from We R Memory Keepers. They have a new-ish line called 3D
My final tag turned out to be my favorite. Here I used butterfly stamps from Finnabair. I took a class this summer from Finnabair and she is an incredible artist but also an incredible person. She really takes a laid-back attitude toward art and is a very encouraging teacher who really wants her students to understand the products and enjoy the process.
