New Year Goals - Do 12 Tags - Tick!

Tim Holtz 12 Tags - Jan 2016 - Addicted to Art

I made four goals for 2016.... not really a fan of resolutions, they last for a few weeks and then fade for me, so mine were more intentions! 
1. Learn to say no sometimes ---- errrr not acheived yet
2. Eat less sugar------ errrr not going well
3. Exercise more ------ doing well so far
4. Do my Tim tags ------ YAY January done and here we are.

Tim used the chalkboard technique but I had my new Twisted Citron distress ink pad sitting in front of me crying out to be used, so I went a little off piste. I also didn't have the stamp Tim used so I brought out a Crazy Bird as I fear they may end up at the back of the stamp drawer when I get my inky hands on those Crazy Cats. I did use the industrial technique and followed a similar composition to the original (here).

  2. Fabulously wonderful take on Tim's tag! So happy you are at least doing well with two of your goals for '16! The crazy bird looks great on his Twisted Citron background, and the rays are the perfect foil! Well done, Nikki!

  5. Love your scintillating take on Tim's tag - that's one to clear the head! Fabulous...

    I'm away so much this year that I already know I won't manage all 12, so somehow I'm finding it hard to get going with this one which I could fit in!
