Here is Tim's tag and you can follow all his great techniques over at his blog here.
As you well know I make cards not tags for this challenge and decided this month's would be for my Dad's September birthday.
I don't own any of the thinlit words so as usual I had to improvise and used a large and small font happy birthday die.
Rather than using "found" relatives photos I try to use my vintage family photos and just look what I found.
Next I got inky and inked up my backing card together with some matt medium.
and this is my final card.
It was very hard to photograph as the matt medium seems to reflect even though it is matt!
Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2015 August
PaperArtsy gels and mediums. I enjoyed playing with matt medium both for creating the inky background and also building up my collaged layers.
Artistic stamper anything goes
Anything but cute making magic I think the photo of my Dad is magical but also I love all the texture and gold in my piece similar to those in their gorgeous August mood board photo.
That craft place anything goes mixed media
Mixed media world gorgeous textures
Allsorts favourite colour I love colour...any colour but if you have to really pin me down it's yellow, green and my ultimate is blue...this piece has blue, the gorgeous new blue from Tim and blue in the stripey paper glued under my cut out words.
Papertake weekly spots and stripes I have splattered spots of paint and stripes in my blue striped paper.
Enjoy your weekend,
Bye for now,
