Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - January

th0114With a few days left to cut-off – here is my reinterpretation of the January Tag presented by Tim Holtz.  I tried to keep the integrity of  the techniques and theme in as far as I used the masking and stencilling techniques on the background of the tag.  I used the Gadget Gears dies to cut out the Gears   I embossed the Gadget Gears with the Sizzix Gears folder.  From the Ideology line I used a few sprocket and minigears.  The sentiment reads:  “You turn all my Happy Gears” – that is cut from two different alphabet strip dies.  To make the tag my own – I added the fanciful Flight wings from the Alterations line and a few smaller thinlit type diecut gears from another company.  I seem to be slacking on this blog a bit….I know – really going to try to make up for it soon.


  1. A fabulously detailed tag, so much to see xx

  2. This project turns all of MY happy gears! So colorful and fun! I'm loving every last luscious detail :)


  3. Love your interpretation. The sentiment is awesome :)

  4. So, so cool - I adore the butterfly wings and amazing colours... a fantastic return!! (May just be me but the writing is HUGE in this post!!)
