Simon Says Stamp and Show A Tim Holtz Technique!

Good Morning!!! It's Monday!!! so, we have a new theme at...

Stamp and show a Tim Holtz Technique!

WELL! I've included a few Tim Techniques... hard not to really! This atc size note book has had the shabby chic treatment from Compendium of curiosities (pg 49) using grungeboard and Bitty grunge.

I went for a different color scheme with denim and lettuce paint dabbers!

The grunge key hole, corners have had the rusted metal technique.
I used the cinch to bind with a metal o ring, it looks a bit bent must need practice!
I stamped the back of the covers with lettuce paint dabber!

and I added a fragment which has a different technique using alcohol and archival ink like a mask, a grungepaper label and philosophy tag on a swivel clasp.

I have applied the same technique to the back of the book too and a grungeboard bird to the label!

Hope it inspires and why not pop round to the rest of the team's inspiring techniques!!!

Sarah, I love this notebook. I think I'm going to run and make some of these for Easter baskets. We have lots of little girls in our family who would use these as art journals. Thanks so much for sharing this idea. Beautifully done, as usual!
