Happy Sunday, Everyone!
Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend. Today I am sharing my Tim Holtz inspired May 2015 tag project. First, here's a peek at Tim's inspiration tag:
I'm pretty sure that this is my favorite so far. (I'm also pretty sure I say that every month. They just keep getting better and better, as impossible as that seems!)
Here is my take. I finally got around to adding some paint to the second "frame". I painted a layer of Gathered Twig DP, and dry brushed on touches of Walnut Stain.
I used a mix of ephemera cut from Tim Holtz Idea-ology papers, and copies of my personal attic collection, along with Idea-ology, random bits and pieces, Chit Chat stickers, and Remnant Rubs. My tiny roses and buds were cut with my Silver Bullet Professional cutter, colored with Distress Stains, and assembled.
Some close ups:
I love my Penny Duncan Creations rose SVG files. Being able to cut them in any size (less than 1/2 inch in diameter for these ones!) with my Silver Bullet and SCAL software gives just the flexibility that I crave as a crafter. The foliage cut is also one of Penny's designs.
Here you can see the custom charms I made using alcohol ink and a Remnant Rub on a glass charm, and alcohol ink and Distress Paint on a gumdrop in an Idea-ology Type Charm base. I find that the Distress palette of products coordinates really well with my collection of attic ephemera, as well as Tim's Idea-ology ephemera, which makes creating matching, custom colored bits and pieces really simple and fun.
Creating this month's tag was a rewarding process of combining personal and reproduction ephemera, and creating custom coordinated embellishments using my collection of Tim Holtz products. What a pleasure!
I hope you find time to have some fun playing with Tim's ideas for the May tag of 2015!
Thanks for stopping by!
