Good morning!! I am so excited today, for we have a challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show where we were to create a project inspired by one of Tim Holtz 12 tags. Oh how to choose....for I love everything this man does!! I know...who doesn't ?!?! lol Below I have a large #10 tag to share with you...Tim always has the best flowers on his tags, so that was my starting point of inspiration, as well as this June tag of Tim's HERE. Love the metal leafs and custom dyed ribbon!!!!
I have a few photos to share of my process below.
As per my usual lately....I made some hand-made paper using these beautiful spray inks, watercolour paper, and sea salt. You can see the technique HERE.
In the next photo I want to share a tip....many of you might already do this:) I first put my arrangement/embellishments on a piece of clear plastic. This enables me to easily move things around, and around, and around, and I can put it over the area on the tag I am thinking of permanently adhering them to. A good few times this has saved me from ripping things off to reapply other places....
that being said...I still did do that with this tag! After I glued down the rolled flowers with my Glossy Accents....this really is one of the best adhesives in my opinion :) I had to carefully rip off two....to switch places :) OCD in full swing!!
A little close-up :)
Another Tim Holtz inspiration is how he dyes his ribbon with the Distress Inks Stains, and then adds a cluster of embellishments as a tag topper. I added a bit of my hand spun yarn to give it my touch :)This is the same yarn in the hand crocheted flower on the tag.
I know you will want to join us for this challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show!!! So I highly suggest you pop on over and check out the awesome Tim Holtz tag inspired projects from the dt !!! I can't wait to see all the projects you all make!!!
