More Altered Tags

So I have been battling a bit of a creative block. I hate when this happens, whether it be in wiring, crafting or everyday life, there is nothing that will ruin my day more than having the drive to be productive and having zero inspiration. When this happens to me in art, I usually go back to knitting random blocks with cool yarn scraps, or going thru my paper collections to find cool ATC or tag backgrounds. Needless to say, I have a stack of both a mile high right now. So today I sat down in my craft corner and forced myself to make another tag, one completely my own. I will probably post it up in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, along with my Tim Holtz 12 Tags for April, just because I can.

Since I had no idea what I was going to be doing, and I really wanted to just dive in, to break thru this wall, I did take any process pictures, but here is the final product.




Tim Holtz 12 Tags: April

So here is my take on the April tag! I had most of the supplies, but not all of them, so I did change it up a bit. I love the roses, this is only my second attempt to make them with the pinecone die, I think they turned out pretty good. I am in love with the new frames dies! For now I only have the honeycomb, but I will definitely be getting more of these. I forget to take pics of the tag in process, so here are a few pics of the finished product. If you would like to join the fun you can find the 12 tags here
