Hello everyone, hope you are having a wonderful day wherever you happen to be!
I'm excited to share my project with you today because it's for someone special and it involves two of Tim Holtz's fabulous techniques. For those of you that play along with Tim's 12 Tags of 2014 you'll immediately recognize the "sand" technique from the July tag. I had to make more of that fabby sand! The "faded layers" technique is the current challenge for CC3C #8 and our lovely hostess is Linda Ledbetter. It seems we both love Tim's July tag. ;)
Participants of the CC3C are working through the techniques Tim shares in his new Compendium of Curiosities III book. Want an autographed copy by Tim? Click here.
While we can't share the technique out of respect for Tim I can share my process. To achieve the faded layers look on my background I used alcohol inks, Tim's alcohol ink cardstock by Ranger and his Burlap Layering Stencil. I love the texture it adds! I die cut grunge board using the images from the Alterations Mini Sand and Sea die set. Cardstock was used to die cut my Alterations Spring Greenery images and I followed his techniques for the 12 Tags of 2014-July tag.
The "sand" technique is so cool and I can't wait to try his "snow" technique on my TH inspired Christmas projects this year. :) Since this is a b'day card for my sweet DIL I used a word band that I love-enjoy the journey. I hope each and every year is a happy one for her and that the journey will always be enjoyed!
DYK that Tim has released holiday word bands? Oh the joy!!!
