Well - here we are with the first crafty finish of 2014. I've got to say that the old Mojo is still feeling a bit sluggish (no doubt the effects of way too much festive food!) and I'm struggling to find the inspiration to get in to the craft room and do some creating.
That said - I'm making a mega effort to keep up with at least the Tim Tag challenges (only managed 6 out of 12 last year - SHAME!) so here is my January 2014 tag...
As usual I had so few of Tim's chosen supplies that I had to come up with workarounds almost from the first step! My background colours are Weathered Wood and Old Paper DS and I've used Tim's Timeworks mask instead of the layering stencil - I quite like the result.
I used the large numbers from the 7 Gypsies Numero set, stamped with Black Soot DI to get an approximation of Tim's sanded rub-ons - I don't think it looks too bad!
Of course I don't have the fob watch die either so I've used the frame part of a Wendy Vecchi Art Part pocket watch covered in aluminium tape and a circle of cardstock similarly covered for the watch face. I was pleased with how well this worked and surprised by how easily the tape cut with a craft knife.
A couple of close ups...
Ooops - did my splattering at the wrong stage in the proceedings!
There are a few bits I'm not too happy with, but considering the lack of the supplies - it's not bad.
