My Tim Holtz June 2016 Tag

tag 1
I had the most lovely weekend teaching at my art group. After class I went to my friend Bonnie's for a girls weekend to celebrate her birthday.  We had a blast playing with all sorts of background techniques.  I decided it was high time to do a Tim take!  I haven't been playing since January.  I love the plaid stencil technique so much and decided to reverse Tim's tag by doing the plaid outside and crinkled tissue wrap inside.  I couldn't decide on a proper die, so I hand cut the heart.

tag 2
I loved Tim's stitching and outlined words.  I used black watercolor.

tag 3
I thought it would be cute to use one of Tim's tiny paper clips to hold some text and make the window more useful.  <3  Some bundled thread, a favorite.

tag 4
Bonnie shared some tissue with me and I highlighted a moth.  The wings remind me of my friend Mimi's pretty mosaic tag that won her a prize from Tim himself!  Go Mimi!  I used Distress crayons to darken the edges around the heart.  Love the mottled look it gave when I wet it.

tag 5
And some bundled vintage seam binding finishes her off.  I colored the wings with alcohol inks to match the copper ink I rubbed randomly on the tag.  I really enjoyed this remix!  Thanks Tim!

tag 6
I'm sharing with these fantastic challenges:

Very pretty, Miss Autumn! The plaid technique looks beautifully "bled" and colored. I especially like the little heart jewel for your ribbons, and the paper clipped sentiment. It's a wonderful creation! hugs, de

I love the way this tag tells a story. The details are gorgeous of course, and I have come to expect nothing less from your artful hands. But the way you used the words here to tell about your happy heart...that touched me. Beautiful!
