Using Tim's Adventure words Sizzix thinlits dies, I chose the words and cut them out of #8 Tag. I saved the punched out letters to use for other projects. I adhered this to the background using Multi Medium Matte and removed the excess with a paper towel.
Dali's works show many recurrences that reference things one of these is the moth and so I chose to use this paper as my background. It is from TH Wallflower paper.
After applying white gesso to the tag and quickly wiping off the excess with a paper towel, I used the above Distress inks directly on tag and then applied multi medium matte blending the colors to create this cool background!
I took letters from those punched out above to spell his name and applied Black Soot Distress Paint, and applied with multi medium matte on front and back. I did not have the stamp Tim used so I chose a french lettering background stamp from Wendy Vecchi. I adhered various ephemera that played to Dali such as Paris and New York being places he lived and worked. Using Black Soot Distress marker I drew a heavy line over the dried multi medium matte and rubbed around with my fingers to create the shadowing effect.
I added the quote using small talk stickers. I thought these words were very Dali. I used Distress paint in black soot with my fingers rubbing around all outside edges to create that grungy look.
