This month’s Tim Holtz tag (12 tags of 2016: June) involved two techniques – tissue wrap and plaid. I tried to create two plaids for one image in an attempt to create the color difference and depth. I used the dress form die cut and then utilized a combination of Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick for the “body” part of the dress form and a combination of Walnut Stain and Wild Honey for the “wooden pieces” of the dress form. With some creative masking involving the 3M Masking Tape Post-It roll I managed it after a couple of tries. As Tim suggested we should try some sewing, I whipped out my high tech needle and thread and hand-stitched the thread and then left the needle in the bottom part since the point of the tag is handmade clothing. I think I will ask Santa for a sewing machine for Christmas!
When it came to creating the wrinkles on my tissue paper for the tag, my best wrinkles showed up in the dress form so here is the dress form and the tag.
Thank you for stopping by and reading my post. I love reading the comments so please let me know what you think! I hope my tag has provided a bit of inspiration!
