12 Tags of Tim Holtz -August 2015

Hi Everyone 
Its time again for another of Tims tags for 2015 and for August Tim has shared with us a way to utilize our mixed media dies as a background to give an immediate dimensional element on which to collage and stamp. Tims Tag and tutorial can be found here. 
I loved Tims tag for August as soon as I saw it so I decided to follow the tutorial near enough to the letter.  At times during the creative process I did wonder whether I was just making one big mess of things having never tried the technique before but I stuck with it and here is my end result :
The die cut background adhered to another paper covered tag

Now for a few close ups.
I chose different remnant rubs to Tim's and used wire to fasten an ideology word label with the word 'Find' to the arrow.  I also finished the hole of the tag with an eyelet and used some hessian ribbon for the tag tie .
And just a reminder again of the finished tag

I always enjoy making Tim's tag as he never fails to offer new techniques and inspiration and this tag , for me, certainly offered both of those - Thanks Tim. 
Who knows with time on my side (for once, hahaha) I may make another one !! 
Right , off I pop  to enter my tag into
