My versions of the Tim Holtz tag for July 2014...  (told ya I was slow!) The first shown is one of the first batch I made; I wasn't really happy with the way my faux sand turned out. But I had a lot of fun making them! There were several techniques that were new to me...
As always, click to biggify ~

On later ones, you can see I embossed the background, and changed how I made the sand. I ended up making a total of 14 of these, and though I enjoyed making them, I was glad when I was done!!

I know exactly which of TH's tag I'm going to try next!

The tag is lovely.

Have you taken a workshop with Tim Holtz? I sat in on one at a show/sale in Anaheim once and it was so much fun.
