Tim holtz Inspired LO

So, on one of the scrapbook forums I visit I was challenged to create a LO with a few specific details. I had to include either raffia, burlap or other natural fibers and I had to use either Tim Holtz product or techniques. I started with light green sheet of Tim Holtz core'dinations Distressed cardstock. I sanded it down and distressed the edges. I used the Fall Line of Tim's distress ink along with Forest Moss and Scattered Straw to ink up my paper. I embossed a sheet of glassine paper with the Paisley embossing folder from Provo Craft, then distressed the edges and inked that up. Using more of Tim's paper I created 12 rosettes in the 3 different sizes that they come in (also, some Tim paper as photo mats). Inked up my Rosettes with Gathered Twigs and adhered everything to my inked up cardstock. I then picked out a ticket titled BLISS, inked it up and added MOMENTS to it with a tiny paper clip. OSV stickers as my title, raffia behind my rosettes and stickles and rhinestones on my rosettes. I made a small journaling tag with sticky bag canvas on a manilla tag. Inked my tag up with the fall colors, stapled some raffia to it, and did some journaling with my Distress Markers. I am pretty pleased with how it came out.

Now to go make more Rosettes to make some Pumpkins, Pinecones, and Turkeys! Gotta decorate fall. Will post once they are made.
