Tim Holtz October mixed media tag

I know it's Sunday... But I didn't have time to create a tag for the October Tim Holtz's mixed techniques challenge yesterday... So here I am in my PJ on a Sunday morning to create an Halloween tag...

I didn't have any of the Tim Holtz's products excepted the distress inks, so here is what I did...
I cut off images from the Haunted Hallows pad by Teresa Collins (an old but loved one) to create the collage and used black gelato instead of distress crayon. I used black and Tea dye distress inks too.

I draw and cut out a pumpkin in 3D, create an embossed effect with a paper blossom tool (Mc Gill), then applied black distress ink to make the embossing pop. I assemblied the pumpkin with 3d dots and a distress leave.

I added a spider web and a cute spider (Blue Moon Beads), a black lace and few staples and my tag was done !
Isn't it frightening cute ?

I wish you a great Sunday and see you for other projects next week...


  1. Those pumpkins are so cool! Love them!

  2. Absolutely love this!! I really enjoy & learn from people when they dont have all the supplies Tim uses! :)

    1. Thanks ! I am far from having all the TH supplies and I cannot find a lot of them where I live, so I have to be creative !
