Tag for Opening Page of 2012 Scrapbook

New Year_s Tag

This tag was inspired by a beautiful New Year’s tag shared by Anita Houston.

Starting with a #8 manila tag, I sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Glacier (have had on hand for years but never used). After drying, I inked with Iced Spruce and Broken China distress inks. I stamped a few of Tim Holtz’s clocks and then heat embossed with white powder. I found some old transparencies for laser printers (from my teaching days) and printed a scanned copy of my music for “Auld Lang Syne” onto the transparency and adhered with staples. The sentiment is from one of Tim’s stamp sets. The border is cut with the Vintage Lace die on metal tape. The “ribbon” is twill tape, inked with Iced Spruce. I finished off with some metal embellishments and flourishes from my ever-growing supply of TH goodies.

Since most of my tags make their way onto scrapbook pages, I must be careful about being too “dimensional.” I think this one will work just fine!
