It's December!

And you know what that means...yep, time for another Tim 'The Distress Man' Holtz tag!  The last for 2015...gasp!  I do hope he continues this monthly event next year.  I've been keeping up since he started them..what, back in 2007 or so?

Once again I thought outside the box on this Christmas wreath for me.  But I did use Tim's Christmas greenery dies to create the underwater plant life that surrounds the seahorse.

I do like the way Tim gives his supply list so I'm going to copy it.

Surfaces:  #8 manila tag, kraft core, sticky back canvas
Distress inks:  Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, Ground Espresso
Distress spray stains: Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch
Distress paint:  Black Soot
Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mist
Dies:  Festive Greenery, Bow-Tied, Seahorse, Holiday Greens
Layering stencil: Bubble
Embellishments:  sand paper, Small Talk chit chat stickers

I love looking back at all the tags I've created over the years.  I can see how my art has evolved and what themes and color schemes I used the most.  Lots of lessons learned and new ideas added to my repertoire.


  1. I like your thinking outside of the box on this!

  2. I LOVE that you made it your own and I LOVE the sea theme! So fabulous! Hope all is well with you and the Mr.
