I had a great time playing with the techniques Tim highlighted in his February tag tutorial. You can see his tag here. Probably the last time I made a collage was in high school for a class project...and that was some time ago :) My focal point is a piece of ephemera I received as a gift with a purchase from The Funkie Junkie Boutique...thanks Linda,
I found various other pieces of ephemera and tags that I Glue n' Sealed to my tag. I pretty much followed Tim's step by step instructions. I finger painted Picket Fence Distress Paint to give a shabby feel and smudged Black Soot Distress marker to create shadows between my layers. I painted the wordband with Picket Fence Distress Paint to highlight the message and secured it with two fasteners.
I substituted a tattered flower with a button center made with the Tattered Floral die offsetting an Industrious Framed floral paper from my stash for Tim's wool heart.
My Adornment Arrow holds a small metal heart embellishment which I distressed with Black Soot Distress Paint. I tinted Crinkle Ribbon with Fired Brick and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink misted with water.
