Tim Holtz: 12 Tags of 2014 - May


Tim's tag for May is above -
click on the picture to go to his blog and
see in detail how he did it.

Here's the one I made

The idea this month was to use trinkets and embellishments
and mount them onto a series of little tiles.
In Tim's own words this was to be a
"“creative composition” assignment -
a simple process to layer and incorporate 
an eclectic mix of elements into an artful tiled tag." 

This is what my background looked like at first.

I laid out the bits and pieces I was going to use

(I changed my mind about the buttons and used
a pen nib instead)

I don't have a great many different embellishments
but was pleased with those I managed to find.

I like the little blue cameo which I've had for ages.
Similarly, the rusty heart.

I cracked open the packet of idea-ology fragments
and stuck a vintage image below two.

I enjoyed creating the 'wonderful' tile with the
Sizzix Alterations ShadowPress Debossing folder.
(from the 'Authentic Set').

Each of the mini tiles was covered using paper from
Tim Holtz' idea-ology paper stash (Vintage Shabby).

Not perfect, but it's my kind of 'wonderful'!

Thanks for looking :)

Yes, it is wonderful! Great background and I love all the different trinkets you have used to decorate it it. Jx
P.S. What do you use to stick the pictures onto the fragments? I use Glossy Accents, but not always successfully.
