For the new Tim Holtz Tag for August Tim wanted us to explore our "muse" and create this month's tag using our own creative style and "muse".
I love this and I really love the idea of just creating using our own unique creative styles.
Of course if your following along with my blog, you know that I have decided to make postcards instead of tags this year. I really like the idea of the postcards because my 7Gypsies craft tray is looking so full and I just love it AND I send one every month to a crafty friend of mine, what better way to get some "happy mail" than to receive a postcard
For starters I gathered some of my favorite Tim Holtz products to use
Next, using multi matte medium I adhered my tissue paper and tape onto my background
I also used Tim's stamps and archival ink to stamp my images
I created the rest of my background using Tim's tutorial HERE

For my finished postcard, I used Tim's Idea-ology trinkets, tissue tape, tissue paper, dies, grungeboard, embossing distress powder, stamps and so much more.
This was such a fun postcard to create, with all the wonderful layers and depth, what a thrill!! I hope you will try your hands at making the 12 Tags of 2014 for August because it's a blast!!
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope to see you soon
