From the moment I started browsing the internet and reading the different blogs I was excited about the different challenges that are avaliable for the crafting community.
So when I read about the 12 tags of 2012 challenge from Tim Holtz I immediately decided to join the experience.
Although I don't have any off the supplies he used I started to create a March Tag with the products I had in stock.
This is how it went :
|I started out with a chipboard-shape which I painted in a dark brown colour.|
|After that I used a lighter colour brown an tried to make it look like old wood.|
|The main focus of this tag is the text I've chosen, after that I added some light green flowers underneath using a stamp.|
|And here is the best picture from the March Tag!|
My very first crafting challenge project is finished and I'm fairly proud of the result!
I wasn't able to make a better picture because of the different shiny pieces on the tag and the bad light in the room.
Looking back at the picture's I realize that it would have been more balanced if I made the text a bit bigger. The way it is now, it seems like the chipboard-shape is too big for the creation that's on top. But for a first try I think it looks decent enough.
Since I'm completely new to these challenges I really hope to get some comments from the more experienced crafters around.
Can't wait to start with a new tag next month!
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
