January 12 Tags of 2015

I LOVE playing along with Tim Holtz' 12 Tags series! But wouldn't you know I never manage to get linked up in time.:(

So this is my January tag inspired by his:

I don't have very many of Tim's embellishments so I have to create my own. His tag was collaged with his tissue paper. I stamped images onto tissue paper to make my own. I used a combo of Tim's stamps and some Unity. I forgot to take a before photo but here is what was left after I cut out what I glued onto the tag:

On top of the tissue was lots of layers of spray ink and distress paint. I don't have his chit-chat words so I created my own using my label maker! It worked out better because I got to choose the words that I wanted to represent my year.

I also didn't have his Alpha Parts so I painted and grunged up some really old chipboard:

Linking up to:
Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge
Unity Friends with Flair

Thanks for stopping by today and wish me luck getting February's tag linked up in time!
