It seems like so often my Tim Holtz stash gets used for cards, tags, and canvas creations but the truth is I really love how much fun many of his products are for scrapbooking! From the tissue to the rub-ons, letters to tags – I had a blast making this page. Here are some process shots so you can see how it all came together:
What to do with those tricky surfaces that won’t stick? Just staple, use brads, or stitch!
I love painting these new Tim Holtz letters. So ornate and perfect for some Disney fun.
Now we’re getting somewhere! As you see above, my letters were really blue. So I used some sand paper and scrubbed off a bit of color on my finished project.
Below, I’m using my tarnished brass distress paint with my gears blueprint stamp to create some funky magic as an accent. You can also see I’ve stitched my photos to the tissue so I can be sure that they’ll really stick.
For contrast and added detail, I also added in some number rub-ons. The great thing about these is that I’m able to rub without cutting out or worrying about parts I don’t want to stick to attach themselves. They are super easy to use.
Some more glue, a bit of metal, and before you know it I had a finished page with lots of funky detail.
I also want to mention that I am absolutely in love with the new Shattered cardstock by Tim. It is the cardstock I used on this page, and I love the pre-aged look of it! This layout reminds me to scrapbook more often with Tim Holtz, and in fact it’s inspired a pink project that you can find over on my blog today. That’s not all you’ll find either – I also have a special (limited time!) special offer up today too.
