12 Tags of 2015-January

~my January tag~

I'm excited to start off 2015 by playing along with Tim's 12 Tags of 2015. This is the first year that's ever happened! As I got into the various steps I found myself enjoying the creative process and that's why I love Tim's techniques and fabulous products.

Following his lead I started off by grabbing a #8 manila tag and adding Melange tissue wrap to the base. I used Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass and Vintage Photo Distress Paint to color the tissue then sprayed it with Walnut Stain Distress Spray. Next I grabbed a pack of chitchat stickers and began choosing the words I wanted to use on my tag. The alpha numbers were altered with distress paint-tarnished brass and brushed pewter-while the "5" received a coat of glossy accents and a dusting of tarnished brass distress glitter. 

As an afterthought I added a layer of Tim's filmstrip over the Idea-olgy alpha number one.

I added chitchat sticker words to the top that relate to travel. We have several trips planned for 2015 that I'm excited about! In fact my family started off the year by enjoying a week at the most magical place ever-Walt Disney World-and we had a blast. :) If you look closely you can see I also included some rub on words-a beautiful world. The wing, mini gear sprockets and mirrored stars are Idea-ology products. The stars were adhered to the sprockets with glossy accents as were all of the metal elements.

After altering the alpha numbers with tarnished brass distress paint I decided to go over it with brushed pewter as well. An Idea-ology arrow points to the bottom of my tag. 

Chitchat stickers were added to the bottom and I included more rub ons. The stickers were distressed with distress markers-brushed corduroy and black soot. 

Before I close I've included a few photos of Cinderella's castle from our recent trip. I love the Frozen look at night and best of all the color continually changes. It's so cool and I kept snapping away!

It's always beautiful!

I had to include this photo-my fave character from Alice in Wonderland. :) 

Thanks for the visit, have a fabulous weekend everyone.

A fabulous tag Lisa, I love mixed media but am not very good at it myself I'm afraid. You have got some great textures going on here and interesting elements.

Your tag is really awesome with the texture of the design and wow I just love the sparkle! :)
Wonderful photos from your trip!! I love the look of the castle at night with the "Frozen" theme!! Would love to be able to take my family one day!

I have a couple of Mad Hatter Tea Party stamp sets that I bought about 3-4 years ago and every time I see them, I think of you on your blog! :) I will have to use them in one of my Flashback Friday challenges!! Enjoy your weekend!
