Joy – Tag #8

Published December 10, 2011 by isisimaginings

I intended blogging soonerthan this, but I’m not feeling great. So, while I was making Tim’s tags, I was too tired to then blog about them. Naturally, that means I’m out of sync, but I did get some sleep, so I’m not complaining. I still have to make tags 5 & 6, but as I’m fairly sure of what I’m going to do, I’m happy to leave them until after Monday – the last day of the twelve tags. 😦

This is Tim’s tag & here is the link to all the details on his blog. If I had to pick a favourite of this year’s tags, quite possibly this would be the one. I love it for all its Steampunky gorgeousness. And I wanted to copy it as much as possible.

My ingredients:

  • Seasonal distress inks – Winter collection
  • TH sprockets & gears
  • TH baubles
  • TH tassels
  • TH tickets TH film strip
  • TH Visual Artistry stamp collection
  • PaperArtsy Numbers Man
  • Seven Gypsies hand stamp
  • Kanban large sprockets & gears
  • Copper & gold acrylic paint
  • Sizzix Broadway Melody alphabet dies
  • Glossy Acents

The large gears from Kanban are gold Mirri card, so I covered two of them with gesso & when that was dry, I painted two of them with silver & copper acrylic paints. I applied the paint unevenly so that the gears would look textured.

I wanted the Numbers Man to have a top hat – he had to be dressed up for Christmas! – so I drew one onto white, linen-look cardstock & coloured it with black Archival ink. I think it resembles a top hat – if you don’t look too closely. His holly sprig is ‘confetti’ from Paperchase, I think, I have a box full of different shapes.

There you have it. It’s taken me ages to write this short post; I was distracted by “Singin’ in the Rain” on Film 4, I never get tired of watching that film.

Happy weekend to one & all, see you tomorrow.

Love & light.
