The 12th Tag of Tim Holtz!

What a fantastic journey we have had with Tim Holtz during his 2011 12 Tags of Christmas! Thank you all for following along on this journey - I found myself getting antsy while waiting to find out what the next day & tag would bring! There were so many fun and interesting techniques. Below is a neat quote from the Endless Tim Holtz stamp that I thought encapsulated some of the magic behind the 12 Tags:
"Creativity is an endless journey where we should always take the scenic route"

And now for the 12th Tag...

  2. I think dunking the shrink film in the melted UTEE was probably my favorite technique- it definitely gave a new look to the shrink pieces. Favorite tag though, probably the majority of the first 4 days. Thanks for the chance!

  41. I really cannot pick one tags since I thought they were all amazing. I learned somethings from the 12 tags of Christmas. I liked Tim w/ the melting pot & shrink plastic, it kind of reminded me some of Shrinky Dinks. : ) I found interesting what Tim did w/ the Santa pic by putting clear tape on it, cutting off the excess tape, & putting in warm water to get the paper off & just have the image on the tape. I really didn't know about doing that & some of the other things he did throughout the 12 tags. I just really learned a lot of things & enjoyed seeing all the tags Tim made & what others made. Thanks for giving us a chance to win a nice prize.
