Tim Holtz August 2015 Tag

tag 1
 Cannot believe August is flying by, but found some time to make my August 2015 Tim Holtz tag this weekend.  I printed this little girl image from THIS pin.  I don't know what's gotten into me lately with the pink art, it's normally not me.  But I decided that a rustic pink background would be a great way to frame her.
tag 2
 I usually NEVER have any of the products that Tim uses, but I actually had these sentiment dies and decided this would be a good time to use them.  I glued the cut tag over some pink Authentique paper with a glue stick, not gluing where the actual cut outs were so it didn't gunk up.

 I added Worn Lipstick, Victorial Velvet, and Vintage Photos to the panel after I had dry brushed the gesso over.  It created a very pretty resist effect!
tag 4
 The letters weren't adhered so well, so after the background was complete I brushed the whole thing with mod podge and then adhered the girl to it.  I sprinkled some vintage chunky glitter across and layered some washi tape.  The metal piece was a brad by Making Memories that I've had for ten years.  When I used my Crop-a Dile to attach it, it left a circular indention.  BOO!  :(  But I really liked this tag despite it...  The sentiment is a sticker by Heidi Swapp and I brushed Memories brown permanent ink with a paint brush around it and the girl for shadowing.
tag 5
I added some DIY tattered and torn ribbon, tutorial HERE, and tied a button on with twine.  I decided to make some little enamel dots with nail polish.  It worked!  COOL!  I love how they coordinated.  I also love the metallic accents.  I'm linking up to House of Cards for their August Metallics Challenge HERE and to Tim's August lineup HERE.  Thanks for looking!

Update: I am so excited that Tim has announced my tag as one of the winners of the August linkup HERE.  Thank you all for your kind comments and visits.
