January's 12 Tags of 2014

Happy New Year to all!  I'm excited to see what the new year will bring creatively!  I actually created the January tag right after Tim posted the tutorial but was to busy packing for a last minute cruise.  Got some fun inspiration while on Catalina Island, we took a tour of the "Casino" and it was so interesting!  Tons of Vintage inspiration from the 20's and 30's, I see me using the new Graphic45 Sea  inspired line for some layouts!  I digress.... Here's my take on the January tag:

I chose to use a Graphic45 kraft paper  I just recently found at Michael's, it was a 5x5 pad, I used my Gears Bigz die to cut the tag, then distressed it with inks and it was good to go.  I used the Metallic distress paint on foil in Tarnished brass and then roughed it up good with the Tonic scratcher and pick, so fun!

For the inside I used a gears texture fade, but it was a different one than Tim used, I then cut gears out with my Sizzix gear die ,  I passed some of the dies, which were covered with foil, through the texture fade with all the mini gears.  It's got a lot going on, but I like it that way.  The word time was spelled out with a combo of mini scrabble tiles and some letter tiles which I picked up at a Vintage Show which took place in San Luis Obispo in November, such fun, so many awesome finds!
It spells out Time 4 me, the 4 coming from Tim Holtz ruler tape.  Part of the tag challenge was to incorporate a goal of sorts for 2014, so including the ticket you get "Play Time 4 Me"!
