tim holtz - 12 tags of 2012 - july

patriotic tag

fireworks created using red, white and blue acrylic ink
 and an airbrush.

sky sponged using 'distress ink' weathered wood with blending tool and then paper edge distressed.

london skyline stencil from '' and mirror of skyline cut from vinyl and adhered to background, then sponged with matte multi medium.

'idea-ology' word band highlighted with white acrylic 
and attached with mini fasteners.

'idea-ology' mini numeral attached with mini staples.
image layered onto red then blue distressed card
 then adhered to black tag.

crinkle ribbon coloured using red and blue acrylic ink
 then tied to top of tag.

'new penny' and gem attached with jump ring to
 'idea-ology' wire pin, and then pinned onto ribbon.


  1. Genius idea to use an airbrush (canned air is expensive and goes quick with this technique). Also, making the mirror image of the skyline really stepped this tag up a notch. Yours is certainly one of the best tags submitted this month.

  2. Sooo pretty. I don't know how to airbrush, but your work makes me want to learn. That skyline is so cool.
