It is no secret, I love doing Tim tags, usually I don't have some (or all) of the items
that Tim does and I have to 'adapt and overcome' as my lovely friend Kath calls it!
Well, not so this time! I have everything - I have not used the bird die before so it was an
ideal time to get him out and use him. There are a few photos to show you the process, you
can see Tim's original tag HERE.
This is my effort.
I had a slightly different idea for the mosaic, I just managed to get the new Mixed Media #3
set which includes the brick wall die and also one I think looks like mosaic. I die cut the bird,
and die cut some Carte Postale paper. I grouted the die cut bird.
While the grout was drying I prepared the tag and the Distress Woodgrain Cardstock part.
Once the grout was dry, I applied the mosaic elements using the Mosaic Glue. I really
like the look of the die cut mosaic elements!
I used the Distress Glaze on top of the mosaic pieces and then assembled the tag. To keep in
with the air mail theme of the Carte Postale papers, I attached a small Idea-ology piece (with the
word AIR on it) to an Idea-ology arrow, using thin wire from my stash.
When I was photographing the tag I noticed that part of the mosaic paper has given
the bird an eye!
As always, thanks for looking, I hope to see you again soon!
