Day 5 of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas


It's Day 5 of Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of Christmas and, once again, I was fortunate enough to have some of the embellishments, namely, the fragments. I have had some of these for a while and never really knew what to do with them. Then on the cruise we worked with them and I was inspired. So it was fun to work with these on some Christmas ideas. The Glossy Accents behind the fragments really works well.
For my fragment ornaments I used a couple of vintage PSX stamps. The images were just the right size.
I didn't bother with wire for my hanging ornaments but instead used some gold stickers. Once again, I resorted to my Krylon pen as an improvisation of the ornament tops. So much easier than all that paper and tape stuff Tim used.
I've really got to get him familiar with the Krylon pen.

Gorgeous! And right on with the Krylon pen!! (Although using it probably doesn't sell all the other stuff.)

This is superb. Love it. And the bits you sent me arrived. You can see one of them on a tag I made for the 12 tags! I love the bits you stamped and cut up. They are all so gorgeous. I love them. Many thanks! Just like Christmas.
