12 Tags of 2013 – September Tag

Author: duhbe  //  Category: 12 tags of 2013, altered art

Here’s my rendition of the September tag for the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013.  I used some new stamps called  Timeless by Hot off the Press as well as a metal embossing plate called Gears by Dreamweaver (for the white textured gears in background).  I used spun sugar and pumice stone distress inks for this tag & ribbon.

 My tag will be sent overseas to a swap partner in France.  So bon voyage to you, September tag!!!

The Holtz version below made extensive use of stencils, along with embossing paste, paint and dye.

I can’t say I enjoyed the new techniques this month.  I splurged and bought a few metal stencils since I couldn’t find the holtz ones anywhere.  Not sure I liked the stencil techniques with the paste, but using them with ink was OK.  I like how my tag turned out in the end, but I had to deviate quite a bit from Tim’s techniques to get something I was happy with.  Oh well – I guess you can’t love all his tutorials, right?

    Yes, those look quite different. But, whatever gets you crafting, right? You’ve got one you’re happy with. Good to see you got some creative time back again.
