Tim Holtz 12 Tags-September 2012

Back in the swing again this month.  Here is the journal I made inspired by Tim’s September Tag.

Supplies Used: 

Ranger Industries: Inkssentials Metal Foil Tape Sheet, Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks, Alcohol Ink Blending Tool and Felt, Tim Holtz Distress Stickles, Tim Holtz Idea-ology, Inkssentials Non-Stick Craft Sheet, Inkssentials Heat it Craft Tool, Inkssentials Wonder Tape, Inkssentials Black Accents, Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paint, Tim Holtz idea-ology Word Bands and long brads, Tim Holtz by Tonic Studios Retractable Craft Pick, Tim Holtz Alterations by Sizzix Vagabond Machine, Fanciful Flight, Die Core'dinations Distress Black Soot cardstock. Other: Journal, Wendy Vecchi, Clearly for Art


1.  Remove the cover from the journal and follow Tim’s instructions for creating the  Metal Foil Tape background here.

2. Die Cut two butterflies out of Black Soot cardstock and two out of Clearly for Art.

3.  Glue the Black  Soot cutout wings (the top layer of the wings) onto the solid Clearly for Art wings (the bottom layer of the wings) using Matte Multi-Medium.

4. Working on  the Non-Stick Craft Sheet, fill in the veins of the wings with various colors of Distress Stickles.  I used Broken China, Spun Sugar and Dusty Concord.  Let dry.

5. Glue the Clearly for Art butterfly body on top of the Black Soot body with Multi-Medium and spread some Black Soot Stickles over top.  Set aside to dry.

6. Once wings are dry, go over the veins with Black Soot Stickles.  Set aside to dry again.

7. Paint the Word Band with Black Accents.  Let dry.  Once dry, wipe some Black Canvas paint over top and remove the excess so that the white stays in the words.  Set aside to dry.

8.  Heat the wings slightly using the Heat It Craft Tool and then shape the wings  to  give them some dimension.  Be careful in this step not to get the wings too hot.

9.  Attach the butterfly to the journal cover with Wonder Tape.

10. Attach word strip to journal cover with two long brads.

11.  Place cover back onto journal.
