My take on Tim's tag for February 2014 - how wonderful life is...

Well another month and another tag from Tim Holtz for inspiration...I have completed 20102 and 2013 so am determined to complete this year too...So onwards for my tag I used the layout of Tim's fab tag ...found here but decided to make mine sightly different and go chalkboard mad!

So here is my take on Tim's tag for this month :


So I loved this sentiment...just fab and copied Tim's chalkboard technique for it...which is also what I used to create the background using the new heart stencil...


Now you know me and idea-ology... I have a teensy thing for idea-ology ...so rude not to put some on right? I also wanted to add a splash of colour so added a glittered heart as Tim had but also some red dyed seam binding to the top...



Yes we actually saw the sun and I just know that it has shone all funny on some of these but...it was just so nice to see it...and I love how it shone on the ribbon...so sorry if it makes your eyes go a bit funny...but you never know when we will see it again! x

so I am linking this up to tim's 12 tags ...february tag here ..


keep those fingers inky!

  13. Wonderful Trace --- you already know how much I love what you do. I think I am going to get sick to my stomach. I tried like crazy to do Tim's Blackboard technique and could not for the sake of me make it work - so I moved on. You have done it on your whole tag! Is there a secret - did I miss something in his instructions? I will definitely try again - you have really mastered it!!

  18. Wonderful tag Trace - I think Tim's blackboard technique is quite hard to do but you sure have mastered it! The rd accents looks so good with the chalked blackboard.
