Cassie combined a heart from Dina Wakley’s Collaged Hearts stamp set with a Tim Holtz stamp from Music & Advert and Tim’s Wildflower Stems #3 die set from Sizzix. The sentiment are words cut from Dina Wakley’s Typed Ledgers 2.  

Andrea gave a nod to vinyl by using Concord & 9th’s Greatest Hits die set. She used Studio Light’s Scallop Fun die set and Dina Wakley’s Collaged Words to add some interest to the background.

Anna-Karin made a tag inspired by music. The background was done with Tim Holtz Concerto stencil, Ranger Texture Paste and Sizzix Ivory Luster Wax. The sentiment comes from Tim’s Good Thoughts set.

Barbara was inspired by the Velvet Underground & Nico album cover, which was made for them by Andy Warhol and became one of the most famous in the world.
She made a series of ATCs using the Bold Botanicals stamps set from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous along with Ranger Ink Distress Oxide Ink pads and Clear Embossing Powder.
To complete her motivational ATCs, she added Tim Holtz Idea-ology Label Stickers Thoughts

Cheiron was inspired by the Taylor Swift song Lavender Haze to create a tag in all shades of purples using Tim Holtz Distress Paints in Dusty Concord, Wilted Violet, and Seedless Preserves. She combined it with stamping from the Stampers Anonymous Mini Media Marks stamps and a Photobooth photo.

Emma was inspired by her favourite band Duran Duran and she chose to create a project based on their song, The Wild Boys. She used a Small Etcetera Tag that she rotated to make a horizontal base, that was covered with paper from the Backdrops Vol 4 pack. The focal point of her project was a Tim Holtz Group Paper Doll that was sitting on a ruler piece, and surrounded by Sprocket Gears and Flourish Adornments.

Kath was inspired by the Beatles song Ticket To Ride. She covered a Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mini Etcetera Tag using Tim Holtz Correspondence Eclectic Elements fabric and decorated with Stampers Anonymous The Inspector and Ticket Booth stamp sets, Mini Layering Stencils from Sets 7 and 48 and Distress Embossing Glazes.

Macarena got inspired by Peter Gabriel Don’t Give Up song as she’s going to be on his concert soon. She used Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Script for the background and as a main element she took the Tim Holtz Sizzix Retro Type Bigz Die and embellished it with those tiny flowers from Tim Holtz Sizzix Brushstroke Flowers Mini Thinlits Dies.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag with music instruments using Graphic 45 Regular Tag & Gears Staples Die on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Carved Instruments and Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Noteworthy.

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
