My first collage...

You can probably tell from my card - I don't do collages.  With all the fuss about Tim Holtz and all the Tim Holtz products I have, I thought it was about time I tried one.  Lots of stuff going on here.  I have the embossed heart lock and key.  Two butterflies that have been distressed, embossed and covered with UTEE.  There's an embossed, distressed pocket watch and a button.  The background paper is wonderful, I find it very odd that although Michaels is always out of stuff I want, they do have a great line of paper.  The image has Pine Needles Distress Ink on the edges.  The brass heart is an old charm I had and the butterfly is an earring I lost the mate to.  Not my best effort but I'll get better, I promise.

Paper: Recollections Love Letters, Kraft; Stamp: Saturated Canary Gothica; Spellbinder Labels 8, Fancy Butterflies, Timeless Heritage; Cuttlebug Clockworks Embossing Folder; Distress Ink Pine Needles; Copics: [Skin E000, E51, E93, B63][Clothes BG93, BG96, BG72, BG75, BG78, E43, E44][Hair E51, E50, E53]
Musings:  Have you ever had a commercial that just made you go, "huh?"  The 501 Jeans commercials used to do that for me.  I'd watch the commercial not having any idea what it was about until they ended it with "501 Jeans" and I'd go ?????????  There is a commercial playing on a local station currently that really confuses me.  I'm a huge Judge Judy fan - never miss her.  The local station that plays Judge Judy in our area also runs a commercial that starts, "If you love Judge Judy, you'll love the free checking options of Mid Illini Credit Union."  Say what?  It's hard to even laugh at that or am I missing something?

  1. I actually stood for quite some time in the aisle today ay Hobby Lobby...looking at all the T Holtz inventory...I like it from afar...have no talent for pulling it off. I wish I could do the collage thing...don't know what the secret to pulling it all together is...
