Welcome to the third and last day of my event featuring Tim Holtz. For today I just had to make a mixed media tag!
One of the most common comments that I get about art journaling is “how do I start” or “I am too afraid to start, what to do?” Well here is the answer!
Create tags using the same techniques, the area is smaller to work on, you can try your mediums, decide on the placement and if you mess up …you just throw it away. On the other hand, I am sure you will never throw your lovely art so you can use a ring to bind them all together! How is that for a start?
In my tag I used all my art journaling go to techniques. And I just love the outcome….
You can see I did some stenciling, used my distress paints, my distress inks and even did some paper piecing.
I have also added a metal word band by Tim Holtz and various bits and pieces from his ephemera expedition pack.
I have colored some seam binding to create a matching ribbon. This is a technique I really love because it is quick and easy but the result is just great. OK it is a bit messy but we crafters love inky fingers don’t we?
