Tim Holtz Art Journal Spread

Hi all!  Well.. like I said... time to start using all my goodies I have been "collecting" for a while!
I have discovered that I have an absolute TON of Tim  Holtz products, and have decided to dedicate a whole art journal book to art journal spreads using mostly Tim Holtz products! It's a challenge.. but I know I can do it!
While keeping this in mind, I found another awesome challenge blog that is specifically for TH products and techniques! How cool!  Check it out ....  A Vintage Journey .
The challenge this month is to do something vintage and artsy using the theme...
So... I thought I would do my art journal spread using some new product I received a couple months ago.. TH. Postcards.

I used TH paper stash kraft resist paper, tons of different distress inks, some chitchat stickers, school house stencil and paste, and a few bits and pieces!
Thanks for taking a peek!
