Tim Holtz October 2016 Tag

Here it is ....Tim's Tag...
Would you just look at this tag ....How FABULOUS it is!
Tim is like "James Bond"....
Check out all the detail ....Tim thinks of
I love this tag!
Here is the link to Tim's tag if you would like to make it:

So this month I SKYPED with my girlfriend to make this 
October tag. If we can't get together....we can SKYPE....the next best thing.... right!!!!
This month we were able to plan our tag because we traveled to see a girlfriend 
to create a special project. A SCRAPPY WEEKEND...GIRLTIME....
We were hoping to make this tag when we were together, but we made
something REALLY SPECIAL..and didn't have time.  
I am going to post that later....can't WAIT to SHARE!!!!!! 
Sooo we at least purchased a few things for our tag....after a few
visits to Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and Tuesday Morning!
Nothing like shopping for inspiration ...RIGHT!!!!! LOVE!!!!

(This casket would have been really cool with the
Riveted Metal Texture Fade hoo..
.I don't have that one the wood will have to do)
There are three birthdays in my family in 
October.... (two right on Halloween) so I
couldn't resist a Dracula theme tag.  It brings back the memories of 
watching DARK SHADOWS when I came home from school!
 (Telling my age here...LOL)
So for my tag...I kept to Tim's directions for the back ground,
but that is where our similarities stopped. 
I made the back ground first....I used a few different
background some dictionary
prints....the letters and the definition for vampire.
Everything was distressed Tim style
with Walnut Distress Ink and Paint.
I also used Candy Apple Red Paint, I poured this 
into the bottle so it would look like BLOOD....and a 
Red Sharpie for edging.
I think one of the COOLEST products Tim has out now is the 
Distress Collage Medium Crazing.  This stuff is amazing and 
makes the most wonderful teeny, tiny cracks on your paper as it
dries.  Don't be afraid to use a heavy application.
(Tim suggests applying it with your finger)
You can see the tiny cracks in the photo above.
LoVe, lOvE, LOVE this product.
Here are a few more close up photos of
my October Tag!
