Tim Holtz and I Could Totally Hang Out, Just Say'n.

No, for reals.  We could. We could just hang out and then we could make stuff.  Or, I could just keep buying the fabulous products he designs and keep reading his blog and keep copying errr..... creating work INSPIRED by his!  Yup!  That's what I can do!  'Cause I don't think we will get to hang out since he lives in Arizona and I live in Mass and stuff.  BUT, alas, I can at least  share with you what I created based on THIS awesome post he put up on his blog.

A Mixed Media Canvas


I created this using the same basic steps that Tim laid out for his project.  I decoupaged the text paper onto the canvas with the grunge board crown glued down securely.  (Tombow MONO adhesive) and sealed it with the decoupage medium.  I then painted and inked my metal word tag and inked the edges of the canvas and the crown.  The last step was to adhere the metal pieces.  It was really a rather simple piece to create, but I really love the result!  Very fun!

Live - Detail

So there you have it!  What do you think?  I do have a story to share with you all, as our Fourth of July was what one might call 'eventful' but I am too wiped out by it at the moment, so you will have to get that one later on this week.
