January Art Draw - Twelve Tags Tim Style

This is the set you will receive
It's time for the January Art Draw which some of you may recall I said was going to be a set of twelve tags based on the Tim Holtz Twelve Tags of 2012. Wherever possible I have tried to follow Tim's tutorials and these are my take on the tags he made staying as true to the original ideas and techniques as materials and ability allowed. Some are fairly direct copies and others much more interpretive but I hope that you will like them. 

A couple more photos in more detail. I don't think the February one with the heart was ever blogged as we I did it out of sequence. The same goes for The September Industrial Tag, really like how that one turned out.
The November tag in fall colours wasn't blogged either. I love my little pine cone!!
Just for completeness here is the set I am keeping for myself.
Yes, I can count, I know there is one missing. I was looking at it earlier and now can't seem to put my hand on it........
And finally here are my 11 tags displayed on a big split ring. I will be posting the winner's set out packed flat but I'll  include a ring so you can do this if you want to.  Sorry about the lengthy post but wanted to make sure you know what you are getting. So, if you would like this set of tags all you have to do is leave a comment on this post before 9.00 pm on Thursday 31st January 2013.
International players welcome, feel free to link from your own blogs (if you let me know you have I'll put you in the hat twice).
I really enjoyed making the tags, even if I did feel a bit under pressure at times and the payoff is I have a ready made giveaway item.  It's time to start the Tags of 2013 so if this is well received I may do the same for next year (Nothing like planning ahead is there.........).
Did you know this giveaway has been running since February 2009? Where on earth has all that time gone! So thanks to everyone who has supported me over the last 4 years (some of you have been here since the beginning!) and here's to the next ........ well, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves!!

It took me a moment to figure it out, but I believe it's the July tag that you're missing, where he did the Statue of Liberty and we blew the ink through a straw or a air thingy! Love seeing all your tags, I actually have packaged mine up, except for 2 and will try and sell them at the Art MoB...will be interesting to see if they sell. waving hi from the cloudy hills of North Carolina :)
