It's started! -tag time!

I know that there are lots of you out there, religiously following Tim's blog, and waiting for his tags to show every day! You are not alone!! lol There I am, every day waiting for him to post to see what gorgeous effects he comes up with... The first one was no exception, and I am totally, totally in lurve with the cut it up, make it wood like technique! Oh so many explanation marks.. how else do I express it?
I have managed today to make the first tag even though I have been out all day in London all day , braving the trains, and the cold snowy weather.. Had a great lunch with Hels and Ellen.. and a little retail therapy didn't hurt anyone..
I did prepare most of the tag before I left and put it all together when I returned. The only problem I had was my hot glue gun has sparkly blue glue in it!!!! I am sooo messy when it comes to glue... it ends up everywhere!!
For those of you who don't have white crackle paint ( neither do I , it has gone very hard and not paint-like at all!!) I used white dabber and rock candy crackle paint. 
So come on show me yours....
Happy Tag Creating

Your tag is wonderful. I just put mine on my blog I didn't have any of the elements so a lot of improvising, first time I have had a go at Tim's tags and I love it !

Beautifully done, Jennie! I love the way you've made it your own!

It's spectacular, Jennie! I love the tilt-y fence and the cool way you did that tree! Isn't this just TOO fun??

flutterbycrafter said...

Great tag, love your tree

Jennie Atkinson said...

A beautiful tag Jennie - love it all, but the fence is great! I had to improvise greatly on this one as I didn't have any dies etc., and my tree was made from paper string! But alot of fun. Mine is on by blog.

Fliss said...

Just gorgeous Jennie. Love it! Strangely enough I did exactly the same as you as I only have Rocky Candy crackle paint - great minds think alike!
Shame about the post office as I've got an order from you to come somewhen.
