it's always the small pieces...

Good morning everyone! 

Today I'm sharing a collage Art Journal Page and it was created with a ton of Tim Holtz products! :) To start- I created a watercolor wash background with Fossilized Amber, Gathered Twigs and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide inks. Once dry- I added some torn Typography tissue paper with matte gel, I let that dry and then added Stickles Moon Dust Glitter Gel through the Thatched stencil. The edges were distressed with Brushed Corduroy distress ink, the tags were cut with Tim Holtz dies and all elements are from Tim Holtz: Botanical chipboard pieces, pocket cards, Snippets and sentiment stickers.
Here's a close up of some of the sparkle... Moon Dust glitter gel is so sparkly IRL! 
And another close up- the smaller tag is a pocket so the flower stem would fit inside :)
Well, that's all for today... thanks so much for stopping by!
Take care, Tammy

A super collage of different elements, placed together in a random yet organized way. When. Try this style I feel it ends up just messy. Collage is not as easy as I might seem. Beautiful!

Hi Tammy! This is another gorgeous journal page and I truly love the mix of all the Tim Holtz ephemera! Even though I create a lot of CAS designs now, I'm still a lover of all things frayed, water-stained and antique-y! What a wonderful piece!
Take care -
Hugs - Rachelle : )

What a wonderful collaged journo page that really lifts the spirits with its 'sunshine', summer radiance. Your composition of all the elements is very well balanced and encourages the eye to wander around the page to enjoy all of natures beauty.
You couldn't have chosen a more fitting sentiment .
