Tim Holtz 12Tags of 2014 – July

When I saw Tim’s July tag I was taken back in time to a day at the beach when I was just a small child.  There was just something about his tag with the sand dollar and seahorse that drew me in.  I have wanted to do a mini configurations book for a while and this seemed the perfect opportunity to do something with all the little seashells I have been saving.  I will say it was a little bit of challenge to paint and distress stain the actual book and configuration boxes!




I hung some Mini Cabinet Cards with photos of that day above the tag with two Swivel Clasps.  This idea has been done before with other hanging devices but I liked the idea of the clasps since they look like fishing lures.

BeachFront2I stenciled the outer cover with modeling paste, added some more seashells and embellishments and decided that it would be a wonderful day to go to the beach!

Thanks for stopping by!
