First project and post of 2015 !!

Happy New Year everyone !!   I'm not sure why .. but I think 2015 is going to be a good year ..  it's started off pretty good.    It's only the 5th day in and I'm done with my January Tim Holtz tag.   I have to say December was pretty much a blurr.  I missed three Compendium challenges (so bummed) and completed half of Tim's December tag.    The time just got away from me with the holidays and all that includes.

But it's a new year and I'm going to once again promise myself to make time to create and post on my blog .. other than that the only resolution I made is to find a job .. fingers crossed.

So on to Tim's tag .. this one was so cool .. heck anything that involves Distress paint and stains is super cool  :)     I started with a #8 tag and covered it with Tim's tissue wrap ..  glued that down on the tag, used my heat tool to dry it and then sanded the edges to ruff it up.   Then is added some salty ocean and mustard seed distress paint .. dried that and then sprayed on walnut stain distress spray.

Then I used the alpha parts numeric .. I put the "twenty" the "one" and 5.   I used mustard seed distress paint and painted the words ..dried partially and wiped the rest off.   I used glossy accents and mustard seed distress glitter on the 5.    I love mustard seed .. totally my go to color !!!   Then I placed chit chat stickers around the tag .. I used a coat of mod podge over the top to keep them there :) 

 Here is the finished tag .. so cute !   I'm working on a worn corn cover to house all my 2015 tags .. I'll share once I finish it.

I hope everyone has a great week !!
Thanks for stopping in for a look ...  Happy Crafting !!!
