March 12 Tags of 2012

Talk about crafting down to the wire!! lol! I have made a little bit of a goal with myself since Tim Holtz started his 12 tags of 2012, and that is I want to make the tag of the month in the actual month. Otherwise I know myself and I'll say that I'll catch up, but I know I won't...I haven't even finished putting together my December daily album from this year or last year! So, I am challenging myself to get it done! So here it's 12:34 am on March's still March right?! I just finished my tag and I wanted to get it posted here right away!! 

As soon as I saw Tim's tag this month, I knew I wanted to use the umbrella man! I don't own this die, but it's definitely on my wish list. I borrowed him from Tara @ Creative Accents. Thanks Tara!! This guy needs to be in my stash though! I LOVE this technique, but holy man it takes some serious time and patience! But it's totally worth the effort at the end. SOOOO fun! 

Here's Tim's Tag:

And here's my version: (Sorry about the bad natural light when you're taking the photos at midnight!)

I didn't have the cement embossing powder that he used, but I did have the antique linen distress embossing powder and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I think Pumice Stone would've been pretty close to the cement stuff, but I didn't have it, so this is the next best thing :)

So there you have it. I hope you like it as much as I do. Trust me the picture really does not do it justice. The only regret is that I don't have Tim's fabulous wood grain stamp as mine is just not living up to the same standards...hmmm...another thing for my wish list! lol 

Happy Crafting everyone! I'm going to bed :)

Yeah! Totally cool, I'll have to check out that mosaic technique at some point, but I've figured out that our computer is sort of okay as long as we don't watch any videos! I've been itching to watch some crochet techniques on youtube, and I can't, it's a real bummer! Hey, how was Lacrosse MANIA! Sorry, I just laugh when I think of everyone in lacrosse gear running around all manic!!!

Sarah, among the parts of the letters, the messages caught my attention first than the design. But it sure is a plus.
