Let's not forget this time...

Hello again,

You'll probably not know this, but I'd decided I was brave enough to play along with Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2015 this year. And I did actually complete the January tag last month, I just completely forgot to blog it!

So, in an effort to be more organised, here's my February tag, and I'll post the January one too.

Now, not having any felt, I decided to make a heart out of core'dinations cardstock and distress it. In my mind, it looked awesome!
Could I find my Core'dinations anywhere? Could I heck. Even after moving all my crafty stuff and arranging it item-by-item in the new cupboard last week, no core'dinations. It's simply up and vanished!
So I settled for corrugated card instead, and used a little gesso and black ink to try and grunge it up a little (because it was bright). It's not what I'd originally intended, but I'm kinda pleased with it anyway.

Loved doing this tag, as I adore collage. So. much. Fun.

Now, for the January one, I copied the original quite closely, as it was my first attempt and I was somewhat nervous. Of course, I didn't have 90% of the supplies Sir Tim used (have since been shopping and it's now less than 30%, lol), but I managed more-or-less ok with what I had.

So there's my Jan and Feb tags. I'll try to be more organised and post next month's a little sooner (because chances are it'll be done by the 2nd, lol).

Hope you're all enjoying your Monday (this is me taking a well-deserved break from cleaning the kitchen, by the way!)
