My version of TT January

Hello lovely people and thank you so much for dropping by here...
Just a quick post from me today, sharing my version of Tim's January tag:
The original with all the techniques can be found HERE

Now last year I made all my tags as double ones, a size 8 on top of a size 10. This year I am just using size 8 tags. Instead I am in the process of designing a mini book with pockets for each of the tags and a page to decorate to reflect the season. A tutorial for that should be coming your way soon :)

I followed most of Tim's techniques, just changed the colours a bit, used slightly different elements and fewer words. Oh the one stands for January, just in case you are wondering.

Because my 15 is so big, I did not have the space for embellishments, - ah well....
I used Vintage Photo glitter and grunged it all up a bit.
I added shadows like Tim suggests (actually I usually do that anyway, it adds so much more depth).
A muse token at the top was the only embellishment I had space for as I did not want my tag to be too crowded.
Well, that's pretty much it. This tag was not one of my favourites, but hey, nothing like a challenge.

I'll be adding this in the usual place of course.

Thanks for visiting like always. I'll be back on Monday with another tag for A Vintage Journey.

Thank you for visiting like always and see you next time.

Not one of my favourites either, but your version appeals to me far more! Lovely painty layers over the tissue text, and the rusty grungy look of your numbers is fab.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
