This is my second post for today.
"Spooky Stuff" is the challenge
at The Kraft Journal for this week, and my entry is another Tim Holtz tag...
Remember on Tuesday, I showed
you the free tag I got to make at Archiver's Tim Holtz Week? Well before I made that one, my favorite clerk was showing me how to begin and I didn't get things lined up just right. So she gave me that tag to take home and play around with... which is exactly what I did. Can I show you how I created this second one?....
Since I was planning on making
a heavy weight flower, I had to reinforce the tag first. I did this with my favorite Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock from Kraft Outlet. I distressed the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and my Tim Holtz Paper Distresser.
I then taped the two together.
If it's spooky, you have goosebumps,
right? So I gave it a spray! Watch out with this stuff... I didn't use my spraying box... just laid it on my desk and went to town on it. Bad idea... my whole desk is now covered in Goosebumps!
Next up... my flower. I used my
Sizzix Tattered Florals die with some copper sheets and again the Lunch Bag Kraft. I distressed the Kraft with Vintage Photo DI.
Shape the petals by slightly bending
each around the handle of a thin paint brush...
then a bit of a bend back on the tips.
Do each petal this way, then hot
glue the layers. I push them down together with the end of my brush and hold for a couple seconds.
After it's put together, I like to
play around with the petals getting them the way I want. Then hot glue it to the tag.
I tied on some variegated seam
binding and a Tim Holtz Muse Token. I'm really happy with this tag that most likely would have ended up in the trash.
Now, come up with something spooky
yourself, and head on over to The Kraft Journal!
