Sept means it's time for a new tag in Tim's 12 tags of 2012. Can't believe we've only got 3 more tags and 2012 will be over!
Of course, I had to put the Sue Spin on the tag! Can't copy The Man exactly. He's the one who first gave me "permission" to march to the beat of my own drummer. I found it so refreshing after taking classes from other designers who wanted you to do the project just. like. theirs. Why on Earth would you want to have people copy YOUR work exactly? I never understood that. And the very first class I ever took from t!m...ohhh...8 or 10 years ago, he told the entire class that he didn't want to see cookie cutter projects that looked just like his. Do your own thing. Do what makes you feel good. He's had me from that moment! But anyway!!
I used the foil sheets cut randomly and applied randomly to my tag. Then used the alcohol inks to distress. I've been in a decidedly Halloween creative mood here lately, so that is the direction I went in. Used one of Tim's GrungeBoard birds and used Enamel Accents to make it a crow (with a diamond eye!) Then used a couple of his metal numbers and painted them day-glow icky green as my dad used to call it! As I was looking for the bird, the arrow fell out of my GrungeBoard stash so I took that to mean it wanted a place on the tag, so it got a coating of silver paint dabber then once dry, it and the numbers got a dry brushing of black acrylic paint to grunge them up a bit. The spider is from my stash as are the two "apothecary" tags.
