Tim's 12 Tags - February 2015
Here's my interpretation of Tim Holtz's Tag for February 2015 - if you don't know, then all the details can be found on his blog. This is the only challenge I do where I do try to copy the original but it's always fun finding alternatives to create with. For this one I had some Glue & Seal and an arrow!
The collage background is a mix of stuff - old music, dictionary and the February definition, an old seed packet, tickets and the mini playing card. I followed his instructions, added some stamping and outlined in orange to keep it bright!! I diecut a frame, added the felt heart (with staples, not sewing) and finished with the arrow etc. The heart hanging from the arrow and the playing card were both out of crackers - my family must think I'm barmy saving all these bits but sometimes they do come in useful.
I'm also entering this in the Vintage Journey Challenge where it's time to play Tic Tac Toe - I've used some of Tim's Idea-ology Arrows, the Ephemera is some Salvage Stickers on the collaged background and used Ripe Persimmon Distress Stain on the tickets and seam binding.
Collaged backgrounds are not really my thing but I have to say it came out better than I expected. Hope you like and thanks for popping by!!
