Fun with Distress-Tim Holtz

Hi crafty friends,
Two topics - one project with a lot of fun!
I thought I would do a mixed media style page for this one.  I was inspired by the designs and distress colors from T. Holtz. I love the grunge look in conjunction with a touch of feminin steampunk look. I used some Distress Paints silver, black soot, antique bronze, letters from the vintage market Alphabet for a very old weathered look.

more details please ...

Have fun!!!!
