Tim's Tag for May 2015

Well I've done all my chores so thought I'd have a play at Tim Holtz's Tag for May 2015.  If you have no idea what I am on about then click the link and see.

Looking through my stash I came across this photo of Winston Churchill and with all the coverage of the VE Day 70th Celebrations I thought I'd follow that theme.   The base is like Tim's in that I stuck some hessian to a tag,  added some Grungepaste through a stencil and inked that with Vintage Photo Distress.   I also used that to colour some seam binding.   Otherwise I've just added various images found on the net - a newspaper headline, a 1945 calendar - and I printed off the words to use. 

My daughter helps in the local museum and they had a party yesterday afternoon - she mocked up some ration books and they had paste sandwiches etc.  They also had small cakes with little Union Jack flags so I pinched one of those to carry on the patriotic feel!!

Hope you like my interpretation and thanks for visiting.

  2. Awesome commemorative! Love your originality.

  3. LOVE your VE Day take on Tim's tag Elaine! It's always great to see British heritage in place of the US version for a change. Jenny x

  4. Fantastic VE take on Tim's tag, love the focal image and your collage of elements. Tracy x

  5. I love that your collection of elements is themed. What a terrific idea! When I saw Winston Churchill in your thumbnail link, I just had to pop over to see the whole project. I'm so glad I did!
