"Favorite Technique / Tim Holtz Style" – Tag

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)
This week’s Tag Along challenge #23 was "Your Favourite Technique."

This week's Artful Times challenge #48 was "a Tag, Card or ATC in the style of Tim Holtz."

I don't know that I have a favorite technique, and I wasn't sure what qualified as "Tim Holtz style" so I did an Internet search for images, then winged it. Many of the artists who enter the challenges that I participate in create beautiful pieces in styles that I wish I could emulate, so this was my attempt at doing that. I am happy with my end result, and hope I can continue making more pieces in this style, which might not qualify as "Tim Holtz style."

I based my design on a conglomeration of several inspiration pieces, including image and color ideas taken from a Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations post, as well as images found using a DuckDuckGo search for "Tim Holtz style" artwork.

I created this using GIMP 2.8.10.

The vintage images are from a DuckDuckGo search.

The words are from the Encyclopedia Britannica.

The font is Weathered SF.
