Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 - April

Hello everyone. Here I am smack dab in the middle of the month with a completed project. What happened that I finished so early? I don't know! I was trying to find Tim's Paper Mosaic kit locally, but could not find it. So I thought I would do the best I could with what I have, I must say I am very pleased with the results. I die cut the Bird Silhouette with chipboard and ran it through my Xyron machine. Then I cut snippets of scrap cardstock and adhered them to the bird. Finally, since I do not have Tim's "grout", but I do have some of his Distress Embossing powder in Milled Lavender, I poured it on and it adhered perfectly to the Xyron-ed bird in between all the paper scrap tiles. I heat set it, but I really don't know if that was even necessary. I then inked the edges of the bird with some distress ink in Gathered Twigs ink and adhered it to a paint resist background. Oh, and this month, for whatever reason, I felt like making a card instead of a tag!
