TAGGING ALONG! Mr. Holtz's HALLOWEEN tag!
Heyyy there, everyone!
What a crazy busy week! Along with everything else that pops up during a regular Monday through Friday, I was also somewhat busy with the production of FRANKENSTEIN at the theatre I work for- what a production! And a great set. If you're in the OKC area, get yo'self downtown and see FRANKENSTEIN!
We've reached the second half of October. Halloween is speeding towards me and I still don't know what my costume is gonna be... decisions, decisions. But at least I DID finally sit down and make my version of Tim Holtz's OCTOBER tag!
I LOVED the technique he taught us with this tag- smashing and smooshing up the tissue paper when gluing it down and smearing acrylic paints on top. It was fun and just looks great! I didn't have a roll of tissue wrap - so I used a 'newsprint' background stamp on the tissue paper, first. It looked pretty similar.
The skull was stamped and embossed before I ever-so skillfully cut it out, using my nifty Cutterbees. Those scissors are little gifts from God, aren't they?! I also embossed the 'Happy Halloween,' using some gold embossing powder. The 'Happy Halloween' stamp is one of my favorites- I found it in the dollar bin at Jo-Ann last year.
There's some detail of the newsprint and colors. I LOVE this technique! It's somewhat similar to what I did on another Halloween project- but it was a 'technique' that I kinda made up as I went- I'm excited to add paint to more projects, now- I LOVE PAINT!
Here's the full view of my version of Mr. Holtz's October tag:
Hope all y'all are having a great weekend! Be back soon!
