This year I felt a little more free-spirited and decided to create my tags using another art form that I learned from Tim last March: Canvas Tag Art.
I prepped a 12x12 canvas with spritzes of water then added Smooch from my stash. A light coating of Glimmer Mist helped add some sparkle to the canvas. When dried, I adhered some of Tim's metal corners.

Only after Tim posted his final tag, I began planning how to best showcase them on my canvas. Since my tags were cut in a variety of sizes with different orientations, I did my best to choose the correct tag to meet the highlighted technique of each of Tim's versions. There was a lot of thinking to do about how I could make it work but I sure didn't hurt myself trying - LOL!!! I don't even have any tags in my dud pile caused by re-dos. I'm happy about that!
Here's my version of 2010's Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of Christmas, all combined on a Canvas Tag Art layout that's ready to be displayed on the wall. Yay!!! This is my submission for the Scrappers Cove Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas contest. Find the Scrappers Cove newsletter here.

Die cuts are still my favorite form of paper crafting. Something about the ease of diecutting cool shapes makes me happy. Cutting cool shapes out of many different materials makes me feel like jumping up and down!
