A Dreamer Boy

This is another of my DT project for Tim Holtz.com. It's a layout using the cool "Lost and Found" paper stack and tons of embellishment from Tim Holtz idea-ology.

I'll explain on the details through the close-ups below.
The "A" is actually a sticker from the "Salvage Stickers" pad. I've mat it with a cardstock and later stitch on it. I've added dimension to it using some foam adhesives. As for the word "Dreamer", it's basically cut-outs from the pattern paper. I've used some Distress Stickles to add some colours to some of the alphas.

I've used the "Tissue Tapes Wrapping" technique on the grungeboard arrow and the "Thumb Prints on Filmstrip" technique on the film strip.

I've used the "Hardware Findings" die-cut to cut out some pieces from a piece of grungeboard and ink it with distress ink.
To add some soft elements to the layout, I've added some "ruler ribbons" to the layout.

I've also done some masking underneath the embellishments using the "Timeworks" masking templates.

To add some patterns or designs to the white cardstock on the upper right, I've used some "Ultimate Grunge" stamps and distress inks to stamp randomly on it.

Check back for more projects from me! Happy crafting!
