May Holtz Tag


I’m playing along with Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014.  This month we are to mount some of our stashed trinkets on chipboard and adhere them to a tag.  I spent most of my time with the composition.  DSC_0008  Once I had everything mounted, I added a touch of bling to everything with some brass gilders wax.DSC_0004The micro-beads in the bottle didn’t turn out quite as I had planned.  Originally the oil was clear and the beads were silver and gold.  Obviously the gold beads leached their color into the oil.  DSC_0005I’ve been hoarding my typewriter keys for almost ten years now!  It feels so good to use them.  DSC_0006The little desk is by Prima.  They come in the packet white and I love the way they look just the way they are, but wow, it is ever fun to transform them with a little Distress Paint!  DSC_0007 Thanks for stopping by!
