Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2012

October Tag

Tim Holtz posted his October Tag for the 12 Tags of 2012 ealier this week and it was a fun Halloween tag with lots of sparkle and fun spiders!
I didn't have any printed tissue wrap, so I created my own by stamping on white tissue paper.
I used some regular acrylic paints to paint up the background and blotted with baby wipes to soften the look like Tim did with his Paint Daubers and it worked like a charm!
I dug through my stamps and found a fun Martha Stewart set with spiderwebs and spiders that worked perfectly!! Then I misted the whole tag with Perfect Pearls.
The word Boo and the Skull and Crossbones are from grungeboard packs and I  used Studio G Glitter Glue to give the word and skull a bit of sparkle.
The October calendar is from the Idea-ology Lost and Found Sticker pack.
The big sparkly spider and the little glittery bat were left over from when I made my riveted metal warehouse a couple weeks back and added just the right touch!
It was fun to get inky for a while tonight, and a bit of creative playtime was just what I needed!
