My project today was inspired by Tim Holtz's August tags. I used his techniques to create a travel wall hanging. I started with a piece of heavyweight cardboard and painted it black. I then ripped a map from an old atlas, crumpled it up and soaked it in a mixture of TH Walnut Distress Stain, Old Paper Distress Stain and water. Once it dried, I used Claudine Hellmuth Multi-Medium to adhere it to another piece of heavyweight cardboard and attached it to the black. The corners are TH Idea-ology Metal Page Corners.
I followed Tim's instructions (HERE) for the tags, but used watercolor paper instead, and I used his new stencils on the background. The images were adhered to thin cardboard painted black.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
- Little Scrap Pieces - Linky Party
- DL.Art - Thankful Thursday - August Anything Goes
- Sunday Funday - August Linky Party
- Just B Creative Crazy - Just Because Linky Party
