I made these Tim Holtz Collage tags for a swap which took place at the commune "Follow Your Art" (in Israel). I entered the swap twice, therefore I made 8 tags. I started with a cream CS, randomly stamping it with several TH stamps in various ink colors to create a collage background paper. I cut the CS into eight pieces, all equal in size and shape but looking very different from each other. On each tag there's one TH stamp, stamped separately on cream or white CS and carefully cut with TH scissors. I covered each shape of a man, car, clock and vintage man-on-bicycle (the last one was taken from a magazine) with Diamond Glaze to give it a shiny glazing. I crumpled the shapes in various directions in order to get the creases which look like cracked glass. I re-used Coca Cola bottle caps, flattened with a hammer (it was rather noisy but worth the effort) as embellishments. I punched circles out of the same collage background paper I made, covered them with Diamond Glaze to give them a shiny glazing and adhered them to the bottle caps. I glued them to the tags using a 3D foam tape for extra dimension. I chopped the tags' corners with TH scissors, punched holes with the Crop-A-Dile and added colorful fibers from my stash. I added thin kraft recycled chipboard at the back of each tag to make it sturdier. On each tag's back side I added a stamped TH sentence, and then added my personal details for the swap. And here are all my eight tags: (You can enlarge each photo by clicking on it) Challenges The first Creative CHALLENGE for The Creative Pointe (until February 14th) .

My name is Dorly Weitzen and I live in sunny Israel.
I'm married and I have 3 adorable sons.
I'm a Linguist and fluent in 7 languages.
I grew up in a family of artists and art collectors, and I've been creating ever since I can remember myself.
I love painting, jewelry designing, scrapbooking, altered art and mixed media art. And chocolate, of course.
I have a constant urge to create something new every day. It sure is better than maintaining what already exists!
