Mosaic Heart ~ My Tim Tag April 2016

I'm here to share my take on Tim's Tag Remix for this month. I wasn't sure about the whole mosaic thing but when I was able to get my hands on the Distress Paper Mosaic Kit. I decided to give it a go.

Check out Tim's blog for all the instructions here 

My first tag was a direct copy following Tim's. I really love the Distress Woodgrain cardstock - the fine details of the texture is amazing!

While I was waiting for my mosaic layers to dry I was thinking of some ideas for another tag ~ and I decided that I would try some hearts from the Sizzix Heartfelt die.

I liked how they turned out so I made tag base using cardstock covered in gesso then sprayed with Prima Color Bloom in Boysenberry.
I added some Ground Espresso Ink with my blending tool to the edges of my tag and it just made the boysenberry look so much richer.
I added another layer with the Ringer layering stencils from Tim Holtz. 
Its my new favourite stencil!

A few rub-ons, paper scraps and cheesecloth and my tag was complete!

  1. Love your background Julia, such rich colours and the mosaic hearts are just lovely! I haven't invested in the mosaic kit as of yet but you are making me rethink that decision! Thanks for sharing your April Tim tag, Deb xo
