Trick or Treating with Tim ... Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 -- October

My apologies for a short post.  I'm just going to get this in under the wire.  Here is my take on Tim Holtz's October tag for 2016.  Tim is doing a remix of various techniques from previous years tags.  This month it is the mash up of Patchwork Collage and Sizzix Monster.  I was so excited to do this tag.  I didn't get to do the original collage tag and my Frankenstein Sizzix Monster die is absolutely one of favorites.  My take on this month's tag is nothing near the amazing tag that Tim did.  Please check out his tag here and the great step-by-step tutorial that he has on his blog. 


I'm going to leave you with some close ups of my tag.  No details tonight.






 Happy Halloween! -- Mary Elizabeth

Oh my word - absolutely incredible work on that Frankenstein head - the colours, the weathering, the shading - it's just brilliant. An amazing take on Tim's inspiration... so glad you got it in under the wire.

Wowsers - I love the chunkiness of this - makes it even more intimidating! The green works brilliantly and all the textured embossing is terrific. Nicola x

I have a dumb question. I see all these amazing tags everywhere...what do people do with them? They are so artsy, do people just make them to show them? Do they actually use them on a gift, which I suppose you could, but they would outshine the present! Would just love to have some feedback on this...thank you, anyone!

Great tag Mary Elizabeth. It actually looks like real metal. Great job. Going through my excursion list and I haven't visited for a while. Hope you are well. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. All the best for 2017! Cheers from Australia.x

Oh, dear, Mary Elizabeth! Better late than never, but I'm so sorry I didn't see this! What a fabulous take on Tim's tag. Isn't it sad the tag challenges are over? I'm going to personal message you briefly, but only have a minute. Hugs!
