Tim Holtz Tag - September
This month's tag on Tim Holtz's blog features an interesting technique using bits of sticky foil and embossing with various items such as a biro. I reproduced as much as I could but I do not have many Ideology embellishments so I improvised with what I had. The current trend for steampunk leaves me cold - I do admire the art that others create but it doesn't really inspire me to create anything similar. I have no cog embellishments so improvised with a Cuttlebug asterisk which I cut from grunge paper, painted with silver acrylic paint and stippled some black ink over. The metal embellishment is an earring (I lost the other one). I used a 'v' for vintage and added the number 42 in the lightbulb because as everyone knows 42 is the meaning of life, the universe and everything.
