As usual, being a Tim Holtz groupie, I had most of the supplies to re-create this month's tag; however, I only had one package of the honey comb paper in my stash...lucky for me, it was red! This was such a fun tag to create...and I do cherish it. I added the small easel to the back and figure I'll do that with each month's tag so I can display it in my home. Wow...Tim's tags on display year-round...I think I like the idea of the 12 Tags of 2012!!
I'm also currently signed up for an online class with Joanne Sharpe called Letter Love 101. It's something different for me, but I was really intrigued by the class and the idea of learning some different lettering styles. Sometimes I want to write a sentiment on a card because I don't have just the right message in a stamp and I thought this class might help. I also love Joanne's style in creating collages using lettering. There is a different assignment each day for the entire month of February. My schedule just won't allow me to keep up each day, but I'm taking my time and doing each assignment as I can. Here's a look at my lettering journal and my first few assignments...I need a lot more practice! Hopefully, I'll have more to show you in the days & weeks ahead!
