imagine {tag}

imagine tag!

Ok, I have this ‘thing’ where I have decided to go back to 2007 and complete all of Tim Holtz’s “12 Tags of …” series’. I started doing the “12 Tags of 2015” with January 2015 and finish all of the tags for 2015 & 2016! I was heart-broken when it was announced that there would not be a 12 Tags of 2017! I mean really, after 10 years of tags?!?! Ok, I get it, 10. Years. Of. Tags! At the rate I’m going it may be 2027 before I am “caught-up”! Anyhow, this is my tag inspired by #5 of “12 Tags of 2007”. Basically, it was “use alcohol ink,” somehow I turned it into “use alcohol ink on Yupo, and to keep things interesting toss in some Distress Oxides & pastes!” And wait, and wait, and wait for everything to dry (can’t heat Yupo, it makes it expand … or so I read, didn’t really want to test it!). Then proced to NEVER touch the surface of the tag, because it’s Yupo, and everything “floats” on the surface. (Maybe I’ll add some sealer today…)
