Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! Do you check out Tim Holtz’s 12 tags of 2016 each month?
The main technique of this tag is using the Distress Paper Mosaic kit to achieve a realistic looking tile piece. The kit has everything you need for a three part process which comes out looking like actual grout and tile.
I thought I would create my tag based on Tim’s April design but with a twist by using bright colors! It has a bit more clean and simple look to it without using distressing techniques. Both styles are effective!
I used my sewing machine to stitch around the woodgrain panel alternating between straight stitch and zig zag. I’ve kept my finishing touches simple and bold combining black and silver to allow the bright colored heart to be the focal point.
I’ve shot a video of the process and techniques used which you can watch it below or on our YouTube channel.
