Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas, Day 4!

Hard to believe that with this, we’re already 1/3 of the way through this year’s 12 Tags of Christmas, but like this entire years seems to have done, this celebration is flying by!

I immediately fell in love with the tag when I saw it on Tim’s blog this morning. The dreamy, misty background, the cool wintery blues, the beautifully crackled snowman… I couldn’t wait to re-create it! But, having spent the entire evening doing and re-doing this, I’ve realized that either:

a. The Snowman doesn’t like me, or
b. I’m crackle impaired, or
c. Both of the above.

Tim always manages to get those perfect, delicate little crackles, where mine look more like… well, what I’d imagine a window would look like if a paint can sneezed on it. Blob. crackle-crackle-crackle, BIG blob… you can plainly see what I mean by looking at my snowman (who is plotting against me as I type). Nonetheless, I had a blast making this, and will probably give it another try to see if perhaps Frosty and I can achieve détente.

Here comes Monday, just an hour away, and Tag 5 comes with it. Can’t wait!!!
