It's december 1st and Tim has started his 12 Tags of Christmas fun! And what a fabulous start! Just check out his TAG 1. He uses so many techniques here, I can't count them all!
Each year it is a struggle to come up with something similar. I want to use his techniques but I also have to adapt them to the products I have here. It's fun to see if I can think of alternate possibilities, but hey, that is what the journey is all about, isn't it?!
Here is my take on TAG 1:
I used the caged bird this time. The bird is embossed with glitter red embossing powder. I cut out two cages and used part of the second one to make the door of the cage stand open. After all we have to make our own choices in life therefor the bird gets a choice too!
I used Enamel Accents white on the flower and black for the eye of the bird. The heart of the flower consist of a lot of little red beads, glued with Glossy Accents. I made the music strip myself with a music stamp and distress ink old paper and walnut stain.
I hope you have fun today playing with all the techniques. Keep an eye on Tim's blog for more blog- and eyecandy from now till december 12th.
Here are a few detailed photo's for you to enjoy!

The poinsettia with rock candy stickles, red beads heart and enamel accents white.

The red glitter embossed bird, ready to fly to his freedom! Enamel accents black was used for his eye.

Made my own little bead ornament with metal wire and blue beads. Have you seen all the green freewood branches? My husband helped me punch them because my hands started to hurt after punching three times! Isn't he a dear? He gets caught up in the excitement because of my enthusiasm!

even the littlest comment is greatly appreciated!

What a nice interpretation of Tim's first tag! Loved your details and the cage with the open door is a great idea!
