Hello everyone! It's getting close to the end of July and I just finished my Tim Holtz tag of the month. I almost didn't make it, because I had absolutely none of the dies and embossing folders that he used. That is unusual for me, since I am a TH addict! But now that it's done, I am very glad I did, because I learned that you can use Distress Paint, Distress Stain AND Distress Ink on a background to get an awesome result! Since I had to improvise all the way here, I went online and snagged some free SVG files for the seahorse, sand dollar and starfish and cut them with my electronic cutting machine. Also, I opted for using some Distress Glitter in Mustard Seed instead of Tim's "sand" and I used Crackle Accents instead of Distress Crackle (which had dried up on me in the jar). The crackle on the seahorse turned out strangely, but that's OK with me! If you would like to see Tim's tag and tutorial, you can click here: http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2014-july/.
