12 Tags of 2015 - February

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are having a fabulous Friday!  Yesterday, I found time (because I completely ignored everything else!) to play with Tim Holtz' techniques for the February 2015 tag.  Click here to view his tutorial and amazing art. 

For my collaged background, I used a combination of papers from an 8 inch Tim Holtz stack, and vintage papers from my stash.  I had fun mixing them up.  Here is how my "tag" turned out:

As I described last month, I am making art to frame and display in my wall of vintage boxes.  Here is how my February piece fits in there:

I'm not sure which "box" is the best spot.  I'll keep moving it around until it finds the right place.  As you can see, this month I painted the "frame". 

I used a variety of white acrylic paints, some Wendy Vecchi crackle paste, and Distress Inks (Brushed Corduroy and Pumice Stone)to give my frame an aged appearance  It's pretty rough, and that's the way I like it. 

Here are some close ups of some of my favorite elements.


 Thank you, Mr. Tim, for inspiring another fun project! 



Your kind comments are very much appreciated!
