2nd Saturday Recap

We have lots of layouts to show you this month using the Tim Holtz line of embellishments. To see even more projects using Tim's incredible ideas, be sure to visit his blog here.

The layout below shows a "fragment" (a clear embellishment) laid over the image of a rose postage stamp. This fragment helps to add a layer of texture and dimension to the page.

Tim Holtz has several different designs of metal locks and keys. One example is featured below:

On the following page, some metal flowers are intermingled with fabric flowers, adding another degree of interest:

Here Tim Holtz Grunge Board was die cut into flourishes and then inked with Alcohol Inks. The film strip ribbon placed horizontally at the bottom is also his product:

Alcohol inks were applied directly to the metal embellishments to add a splash of color to the page:

On the layout below, Stephanie used grunge board, crackle paint, and alcohol inks:

Die cut grunge paper into flowers and then color with alcohol inks. Curl the petals when finished. The cool thing about grunge paper is it will hold its shape:

The bird was die cut from grunge board then painted with crackle paint. When the paint dried, she inked over it with distress inks to bring out the cracks even more:

Here Stephanie tied a round metal tag to the letter "T". (You can also paint over the metal embellishment, then wipe it away. The paint will stay in the debossed part, highlighting the word or image).

Close up of the metal tag:
She also grouped a metal gear with buttons as an embellishment on her page.

Below, a small paper clip by Tim Holtz was added to the photo, drawing your eye to the subject of the page and reinforcing the theme:

Masks are an incredibly fun product by Tim Holtz. Stephanie paired the large flourish with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to create the design on the background paper:

Maureen designed this heritage piece using pictures of her grandparents and a lace doily that belonged to her grandmother. This is actually a canvas turned backwards and she decorated the inside with lots of Tim Holtz and Graphic 45 products:


Below is a sneak peak at the challenge for next month. We will be focusing on using our stamps to help create a fun and fabulous page:

Happy Scrapping!
