Tim Holtz October 2013 Tag

  For this months tag we had to incorporate the new line of distress glitter. This glitter has a unique quality in that it can be tinted and that it is heat stable. It has the look of old fashioned mica or glass glitter. It's not to "over-the-top" with sparkle where as some glitter can make your project look gaudy. I don't usually associate glitter with Halloween so this was an interesting project. I have never used black glitter before and I absolutely love it.
  I really liked the idea of a frame as the central focal point of the tag. I don't have a die-cutter so I wasn't sure what to "frame". I happen to come across a classic portrait of Marilyn Monroe.
This picture immediately reminded me of the classic Halloween costume of the blonde wig and white dress. Before there was a Miley Cyrus twerking costume, there was Marilyn Monroe. And, if you are going to go to a Halloween party, you MUST wear a costume. How many times have we gone to Halloween parties and seen those few people just wearing jeans and a t-shirt. Boring. So I created this tag to be fun.
