Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015-February

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.

I would also like to enter my tag in A Vintage Journey: It's Time to Play Tic-Tac-Toe-Paint, Ephemera, Die Cuts.

Thanks for stopping by :)
