Putting together a simple mixed medium collage using a milestone photo or event as your inspiration is rewarding especially when it’s a loved one.
The Tim Holtz Memoranda Paperie papers have printed collage sheets so cutting one to the size of the Tim Holtz clipboard is all I needed to get started. I was was pleasantly surprised when I opened up my pack of Tim Holtz Botanical Layers Ephemera and found flowers and other items that match the colors in my photo. Putting this project together was a breeze and I hope to inspire you to try one of your own.
Once I had my paper in place I added a flash card and clip along with a Tim Holtz ruler to anchor my photo. I’ve also used a bit of foam tape under the photo and ephemera to give my project dimension and depth. I’ve stacked up a couple different style flowers to frame the photo.
I used a bit of paint to bring out colors from the papers and also white gesso for a shabby chic look. To finish things up, I’ve incorporated a couple embellishments to celebrate Melody’s third birthday.
I’ve filmed a video of the process which you can view below or on our YouTube channel HERE.
