I love Tim Holtz's blog! If you are not familiar with his tutorial series, "12 tags of 2013", then visit his blog and I guarantee that you will learn some new technique and be inspired to go create something. There is a reason he is so successful!
|Tim Holtz May Tag|
Here is the link to his blog: http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2013-may/
And here is my May tag, inspired by Tim's May tag:
|I used my Frida Kalo stamp that I recently got, instead of Tim's Mona Lisa. I also had some old Bo Bunny rub-ons that I used since I did not have Tim's new ones. I really wanted to put my own interpretation onto the tag, plus I'm using up old supplies! |
|In Tim's tutorial, he pools the stain colors onto the craft mat, then drags the tag through them. I found that this made my tag look muddy, so I applied some of the stain directly to the tag to cover some of the muddy color and make it more vibrant. |
|Frida seemed to float on the tag, so I grounded her with some pink leaf rub-ons and added some stamps here and there with black ink. I also added some gesso sparingly and distressed the edges of the tag, then inked them with vintage photo distress ink. |
|I studied Frida Kalo in college and learned a lot about her interestng life. So this tag has personal meaning to me. I love when I create something like that! My tag does not have alot of added 3D baubles on it that Tim's has but I really didn't think it needed anything else. |
Hope you enjoy! Now go create something personal! Please comment below.
Have a creative day! Kathy
