Tim Holtz Assemblage Clock

Well it's been a bit since my last post as I have been relocating, redesigning and moving my studio-blog entry and pictures to come.  Wanted to share some holiday projects I have been working on in the meanwhile.  First up is Tim's Assemblage Clock.  You can purchase the instructions from Tim's Etsy store here. First I made one just like Tim's:

And then decided to make one with a snowman theme for my sister as she LOVES snowmen:

Just love the assemblage clock idea- so many ways to decorate. Thanks for the inspiration Tim!

12 Tags of 2014-November Tim Holtz

Because the weather here has been so frigid (for fall), I decided to get a little "frosty" with my November tag.  I also completed the tag as Tim did with the Layered leaf, but liked the winter wonderland look better.  Using the same techniques as Tim Holtz did in his tutorial for 12 tags, I
created my tag below:

I used Broken China, Picket Fence, and Pumice Stone distress paint to create the backgorund on the tag, then ran it throw the vagabond with the snowflake embossing folder.  I used Pumice Stone distress ink on the raised portions of the folder before running it through. I then used the corrugated cardboard and sprayed with Brushed Pewter, Picket Fence and Salty Ocean distress stain sprays.  I finished by coloring the word WONDERFUL with distrss paints and wiping off gently.
