Hello! Almost weekend, and in the very last minute, my version of Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014 January.
I loved the cool effect of the dry embossed metal foil clock gears on Tim's tag, but instead of using the Pocket Watch die, I used the Vintage Globe. I die cut the globe from grungeboard and carefully cut away the ocean parts with a craft knife. I die cut it again from foil tape and adhered it to the base of the globe (I forgot to adhere foil to the grungeboard before die cutting the globe).
Sized Circles fit perfectly behind the globe and I covered a piece of grungeboard with foil tape and die cut the circle from it. I used the same embossing folder as Tim did, since I liked the idea of all those little gears as the oceans of the world. The embossed gears were distressed with Black Soot and Broken China paint, to also add some blue to the sea. I painted the frame of the globe black, and started out with Peeled Paint continents. Then I changed my mind and painted them with Frayed Burlap instead.
Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend!!
