So today I have my entry to this months challenge over at AVJ. Its a Tim Holtz based blog and I was delighted to see the theme this month - but having misplaced my journal I was a bit stuck - anyway - i got a new one and - you've guessed it - the old one turned up the day after I had completed this page - nevermind - i now have two journals to go at!!! Lol!!!
I love how this has turned out - I used Tim Holtz tissue-wrap---melange as a base to the pages applied with decopatch glue and creased up to give texture. Then i used distress stains to colour the background so that the translucency was there. I used fired brick, carved pumpkin, fossilised amber and shabby shutters. When dry I added texture paste through a few different layering stencils and when dry added gold rub.
I used the face from Tim Holtz classics-5-stamp set and stamped her in sepia archival then cut some card i had inked up with various shades of distress ink using thinlits-die-set-14pk---fall-foliage-by-tim-holtz.
On this page I added two of the butterflies from Tims perspective set.
I would like to enter these pages into the following challenges:
Thats all for today!
I hope you have enjoyed your visit!!!
