Tim Holtz project: Fashion

Standard

I’m sharing another project from CHA created for Tim Holtz

I found that the new black plastic letters can be topped with stickles (shown above). I also coated with Glossy Accents so that it really had a good seal. But truly one of my FAVORITE items had to be the tiny hangers. On this example (below) I folded a piece of cardstock (like a towel) around the bottom bit and inked the edges for a more aged look. I also added one of the new pen nibs – love those too, and the bottom is die-cut with one of Tim’s dies.

I guess what I’m trying to say, is that this layout was pure, 100% creative play. SO FUN. I decided to try and see if I could work in one of my girliest photos (Miss Becca, in a cupcake shop, wearing her most “fashion” outfit)… and I love the results!

The background is a sheet of the kraft resist paper, and you can see lots of new and older Tim Holtz goodies at work here. The layered flower was created by die-cutting some of the stickers. I’d suggest backing your sticker with cardstock if you’re going to try that at home!

I used one of the kraft glassine envelopes (I used Tim’s texture hammer all over it to get a funky beat up look) to hold my journaling tag. At the top of the tag I used one of the reinforcers (coated with glossy accents & allowed to dry) + some tissue tape at the top of it.

You’ll also see a misted rosette underneath it – it’s actually just a 1/2 of a rosette since I didn’t want it as bulky underneath my journaling where it wouldn’t be seen anyhow.

the letters for “This” are grungeboard topped with distress ink + glossy accents. I use that stuff on everything!!

So there you have it – layout #3 that I made for Tim. So much fun stuff, a lot of which you’ll be seeing in my upcoming in-person classes (once I can get my hands on more!!). If you have questions about the page or anything feel free to ask!

  1. love what you did with this lo. I so very badly want those hangers, too cute. I just might break my vow to not purchase any more scrapping stuff. There are so many things of Tim’s that I really would love to have. Fortunately it is not a matter of life and death because we just cannot have everything that we want.

  2. To me (no bs you know how I feel about the subject) this is the perfect layout.Uncontrived and a little bit of treasured “scrap” to dress up a happy memory.

  3. I absolutely love this. I really like the way you have used the products – very grungey but also very feminine.I just did one of Tim’s classes over here in the UK and loved it 🙂 It’s great to see that little hanger and also the way you have incorporated the tissue tape too…
