TH #9 - September Tag
Timmy Tag. I was pondering how to go about substituting the typewriter as I didn't have the die, when the local magazine came through the door and would you believe a picture of a typrwriter. Well 3 in fact, small, medium and large. I used the medium one on the tag and made the small one into a mini tag hung from the ribbon. I tried the alcohol ink technique but not having wire wool it was a disaster but it washed off with blending solution and I opted for the black paint dabber instead. The film strip is handmade with acetate and a stamp but this time I made it narrower by cutting and fixing the 2 smaller halves together. The number is from my WORDPLAY die and the little travel bag in the bottom corner covers wording which went over the typewriter. Really enjoyed the metal work on this tag. BJ
