Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2015

Hello Friends,

Tim Holtz posts a tag challenge each month on his website:

I just love these little bite sized tutorials. You can learn techniques and how to use the Tim Holtz products, and how to make the most of them. On the link above you can also see all other participants, it's amazing to see the creative outburst on such a tutorial, I highly recommend you go and look at all entries, it is very inspiring.

I used the giant tag from Fernli Designs (find it HERE).

As you can see on this month's tag I had Pink on my mind - you have been warned!

I covered the tag in 2 coats of Picket Fence Distress Paint, and 1 coat of spun sugar.
Then I covered it with the Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap (Postale).
Then I added the paint and spray stain, both thinned with water.
I mixed Vintage Photo, scattered straw and tattered rose with Water to alter the Chit Chat stickers and make them look old.

After I drowned the stickers in the paint and water mix I dried them.

I covered some thickers with black soot and picket raspberry.

Then I added a metallic paint, and took some off again with tissue. The 5 was covered with Glossy Accents glue, and distress glitter.
I added the word stickers and did the shading with Faber Castell Pitt Markers in brown and black.

Tattered Rose distress paint thinned with water to add splatters onto the tag.

iZink in Mango thinned with water to add some gold splatters - these are very concentrated.

The finisjed tag, after I put it all together and added some embellishments.

I hope you like it, let me know in the comments below.

Until next time
