Hello everyone, great to have you drop in here today as it is our new challenge over at A Vintage Journey.
Anne Redfern is the host this time and she chose "All about Him" as her theme.
Now to be honest, I never find men themes particularly easy, but with Fathers Day not all that far away, I decided to make an 8 x 8" lay out, dedicated to fathers everywhere in the world.
I started by choosing a piece of paper from Tim's new 8 x 8 Menagerie collection and then gathered some bits and pieces from amongst my ephemera (most of these coming from the various Tim Holtz ephemera collections), that I thought would fit together and match the colour scheme I had in mind:
Next I decided I wanted to tone down and alter my background paper a little with some gesso, ink and stamping, I also added some strips of Tissue Tape.:
A Vintage Journey blog to see the amazing projects my team mates have created, and of course we all hope you'll pull out your collection of male supplies and play along. Make sure though to read the challenge rules carefully, this is a Tim Holtz inspired challenge and only those who follow our guidelines will qualify for the prize, a £10 voucher from Countryview Crafts.
Thank you for visiting today and have fun crafting!!
