Destination Unknown - Creative Embellishments September Challenge


Hi everyone!  Hard to believe it's September.  The first of the month brings a new challenge at Creative Embellishments.    Love the photo inspiration for the challenge.  It made me think of travel destinations from years past.  As a child I spent my summer in the mountains where my maternal grandparents lived.  Love the outdoors.  When I had children of my own, summer vacations were spent at the beach.
 I created this tag as a remembrance of vacations that are close to my heart. 

    I started off by using the Distressed Crackle Stamp on the background paper.  I heat embossed it with Tim Holtz Distress Vintage Photo embossing power and added some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink.  Lots of layering with chipboard and papers from Blue Fern Studios Wanderlust collection along with some Tim Holtz Idea Ology Snippets and photos from his Photobooth pack. At the base of my layering is the Old World Map Small.   Other chipboard pieces used were from the Film Set.  Both the map and film set were stamped with Tim Holtz Black Soot distress Oxide Ink.  I then applied some embossing medium using the Distressed Crackle Stamp, heat embossed with Vintage Photo embossing power and applied some Prima Bronze Wax.  To the right of the tag I used pieces from Mini Leaves Set 1, stamped with Old Paper, Vintage Photo and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Inks. 


Here are a few close ups:










Here's the September Challenge picture. 

 The twist is add a map or globe.  Stop by the Creative Embellishments blog for inspiration from the design team.  Hope you'll join us!

Thanks for stopping by!
