Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - JULY

I know that I have been neglecting this blog a while. 

Sometimes life moves so slowly and then times like these I can barely catch my breath.  I still havent caught up on y'all's lovely comments from the last post, last month.  I need to get my groove on - I know.

I am going to plead super busyness and not and not do a step-by-step this month, of how I made this tag for the July edition of 12 tags, but I might just add some close ups of detail.  

Found out that I can emboss acetate with my thick stencils in my cuttlebug with the grey embossing mat! A + B + Rubber mat + acetate + stencil + B. This is actually a giraffe print pattern but I think on acetate it looks like water!

Loved making this bottle - I wanted it to look like there was an old treasure map in the bottle - Intense UTEE'ing took place here. I cut a triangle of cork lining for the bottle, I didnt use the die - just cut a triangle, it was faster and less hassle than pulling all my stuff out again.

The sand mix didn't turn out as nicely as I wanted but that is probably because I didnt want to use up all my glorious glossy accents on the sand mix so I tried to substitute white glue in.....Tim always knows better!
