It's a soggy Monday afternoon here today....a GREAT day for playing in my studio!
I just finished my newest creation for Grungy Monday Challenge hosted by Linda Ledbetter over at STUDIO L3! This week, Grungy Monday is all about Tim Holtz' DIMENSIONAL ART TECHNIQUE he featured on his blog on May 8, 2008. Check it out by clicking on either one of the links above.
So, here is my Dimensional Art piece. The background paper on the left tag is from Tim's newest paper collection, "Crowded Attic". The paper on the right tag is from Graphic 45's Steampunk collection. The two tags are wired together.
The tag on the left is supposed to represent a hot air balloon with the gear being the balloon tethered to a basket holding two of Tim Holtz' steampunk stamped images. The balloon is embedded into the tag using Tim's Dimensional Art technique. The basket is one of Tim Holtz' texture fades trimmed at the top using one of Tim Holtz' On The Edge die cuts.
The tag on the right features two more embedded objects; one of Tim's keyholes and the Fractured Doll that is embellished with a small metal gear, a washer and some wire wrapping. Above the compartment holding the Fractured Doll is a Tim Holtz crown. "STEAMPUNK" are letters taken from Tim Holtz' Salvage Stickers and reduced to fit the tag. The top right of the tag features one of Tim's gears from his die cut and other smaller gears from his Ideaology line.
Check out the Grungy Monday Challenge! It's fun and for those of us who love Tim Holtz' techniques and products, this is the PERFECT challenge for you!
