I absolutely loved this - its on the Tim Holtz blog......
For those that dont already know, every year since 2007 Tim creates the '12 Tags of Christmas', which are daily instructions on creating little pieces of altered art on a typical brown luggage tag, one for each day from the 1st December to the 12th December.
They are really worth tuning into just for the ideas on using ranger inks and paints if nothing else. Tim does a photographic step by step for each of the tags.
I love them and usually use a couple of the techniques in my christmas projects.
You can see his other years work here;-

What's really interesting is seeing how his style has evolved over the few years that he's been doing them. Anyways, have a look, I'm sure there's something that he will do that will interest us!
