Tim's 12 Tags of 2014 - May

Hello and welcome,

Its Tim Time! Hooray!!!

Today I am sharing with you my interpretation of Tim's Tag for May. This time we are making tiles. I have entered this piece into the Challenge.

Here is Tim's Tag and the link for his tutorial....


Here is my creative process......


This is shrinky dink that has been stamped on. Now I am adding some alcohol inks.

These are my treasures for the tiles. The Titanic Medallion I purchased in 2010 when the Artifacts came to Melbourne Australia. On most of the embellishments I have added some distress paints randomly.

Here are my tiles.

I used papers from Tim's new Wallflower paper pad.

I am on my second packet of monocles already. 

I am a little obsessed with the Titanic.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is a great take on Tims tag Karen. I love the recycling idea with the packaging and the ration book is fab. Mo x

HA! I did the same thing to male my tiles. I use packaging a lot to give projects a little boost.
Great take on the tag.

Oh wow!! What a way to showcase some of your prized embellishments. The Titanic medallion really shines and that ration book is extraordinary. Aren't monocles fun!?1? Love your take on Tim's latest tag!

I visited the Woods Hole Oceanograhic Institution (WHOI) Titanic exhibit in Massachusetts. You probably know that a WHOI team found the Titanic in 1985. Amazing exhibit! Thanks for sharing this great Titanic project with us! -- Mary Elizabeth
