(Click on image to enlarge)This week’s Artful Times challenge was "Tim Holtz Style."
I mimicked Tim's August 2014 tag which I didn't have time to do last year.
I recently found the woman image on the Metropolitan Museum of Art and knew I wanted to use her for something soon. I realized she would be the perfect focal point for the tag.
I used dictionary page sections as the "tape" behind her and also near the bottom of the tag. Because Tim used tape to resist the application of colors, I used a layer mask on the colors to mute them. I created my colors using several layers, then merged them together so I could use the mask on them.
I created the raised paste using a repeating pattern, then applied a GIMP Bevel script. I used that same Bevel script for the gears and arrow. (It's one of my favorite scripts, and by posting the details of how I created this, I discovered there's a newer version of the script, so I need to download it and try it out!)
I reused the "You have been loved" metal piece from my March tag.
I created this using GIMP 2.8.14.
The vintage images are from a DuckDuckGo search. (See the side of my blog for links.)
