Tim Holtz 12 Tags 0f 2016 January...Technique Remix

Hi there friends
here's my January 12 tags, it's and finished and ready to be linked to Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016 - January I'm set to join in the remix fun and oh boy did I have fun, totally loooooved Tim's tag so had a go with my stash and came up with this verson!

stash I used:

  • tools: Tim Holtz CMS144 blueprint easter, texture fade - pattern and stitches, big shot, cutting pads, sewing machine, scissors, paper distresser
  • embellishments:word bands, trimmings, distress dry glitter clear rock candy, game spinners, long fastners
  • embossing powder: frosted crystal
  • inks: distress embossing ink, black soot re-inker
  • paint: distress paint/black soot/picket fence
  • Ranger Ink gesso; black/white
  • surfaces: mirrored sheets, Ranger black cardstock
  • misc: white chalk, scrap of black silk black sewing cotton, gel medium adhesive matte
basically I followed Tims tute, adding a white gesso splat here and there, the trimmings I dyed with the black soot distress paint and added a little of the dry rock candy glitter (dyed with the black soot re-inker)  The black gesso outlined the butterfly and coated the spinners. To add more texture I took a lightweight soft fabric: silk, and sewed to the back of the butterfly panel leaving random threads and trails of fabric to flutter like butterfly wings in a passing draught.
