It's All About Him for A Vintage Journey
It is All About Him!
Somebody said to me recently that they didn't think Tim Holtz products or techniques were for scrapbooking! How wrong they are!
For this layout I decided to use my favourite Distress Ink of the moment - Salty Ocean, with Stormy Skies and Mustard Seed (quite appropriate for a sailing layout!). I had first embossed the card stock with this lovely compass stamp from the Classics 14 collection. I blended the inks in and around the embossed areas, then I spritzed with a lot of water.
Once dry I applied some Grunge Paste through the Harlequin Stencil and gave everything a good splatter with watery Stormy Skies and Salty Ocean.
I did some random stamping with one of the Mixed Media stamps and the Life is Good stamp from Simple Sayings.
Then I had fun collecting embellishments - I had some Cogs left over from a recent project and I made some tags using the Mini Ledger Stamp and Salty Ocean and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks. I had plenty of other products to add in and around the photograph too!
I layered the background paper and the photograph on some Kraft Core card stock which I scuffed up a bit. Finally I managed to get the last of my Linen Thickers into a related word for a title. I have loved these Thickers as they take Distress Inks so wonderfully.
A totally Tim inspired layout!
