Tim Holtz August tag: Circus

Here is my tag for August,
just in the nick of time!

It took me a while to come up with an idea, for I do
not have those letters. Then the circus came to town and
my idea was born! Love those Tim Holtz circus stamps,
so quiqly got them out.

If you want to see all the details
and the techniques of Tim, please take a

Here is my finished tag.

Now as for some details:

 For the background I used the
chevron die instead of the letters.
After cutting and adding the tissue paper
to the 2nd tag, it was easy to glue the 
cut tag on top. And I do love the effect
it gives.

These arethe colors I used on the tag:
sort of vintage circus colors.

On top of the tag a small filmstrip, for
don't we make lots of pictuires when we go
to the circus,or little video's?!

And her the stamped image that i colored with the
same colors as used for the background.
I typed the words with the computer. 
Splyshing the tag with gold left some spots
on the words, I might do them again.....

Thanks for looking!


Have a creative day!

Hetty you created a lovely circus tag. What a lot of embellishment, lovely colors. I LOVE the way you used the Chevron die... Great idea I'll try to use in a future project.
I have actually visited that circus you mentioned when it visited Copenhagen many years ago.
Thanks for sharing and to spread inspiration.
Wish you a lovely day. Hugs from Monicaii
