Tim Holtz's July Tag was so fun to make. I actually made a few versions but today I will post my favorite. I guess it all goes down from here?
As always I will show you Tim's tag:
This tag was so hard for me and then I ended up making so many. My biggest problem was lack of direction following skills. I started by watercoloring painting a bunch of imagines and not realizing that I had to cover the image with Tim's Distress Glaze and then cover the entire tag with a watered down Distress Ink wash. I will show you a version later that is a complete mess up because I ended up splattering lots of colors in the background and couldn't Glaze over it.
The tag was finished with sentiments made using Tim's Alterations individual AlphaNurmeric dies to spell out "FLY FREE" and "forever" from the Handmade Love die set. "forever" was cut from a piece of cardstock I printed completely black on a Laser Printer and then foiled using Heidi Swapp Minc, rose gold foil. I adore the Minc and cannot live without foiling everything in site. I have a lot of fun things to photograph and get on here and my Instagram.
I finished off the butterfly by adding a Idea-ology Pen Nib covered in copper metallic embroidery floss.
