Tattered Floral Challenge with Tim Holtz!

I was SO excited to see this Challenge from Tim on his Blog!!  Have you seen it? Have you joined in on the fun? If not, run run RUN to his Blog and check it out!!

I love Tim's Tattered Florals Die, in fact it was my very first Tim Die, the first of many ;-)  I chose to decorate a very special hat for this challenge. The hat was my Daddy's and he wore it all the time. I have such fond memories of sitting on the deck with him joking and talking, of him on the lawn tractor (wearing his hat) and waving at all of us as he'd do another pass across the farm yard.  Daddy is gone now and his hat resides with me here in the craft room. It is now dressed up and looking pretty dang good I think :-)

I cut pink, black and white papers up using Tim's die, spritzed them all with quite a bit of water to make the paper a little mushy for manipulation...
While they were still wet I started putting them together in layers using glossy accents to adhere them to each other.  Once I was happy with them I spritzed them with Ranger's Perfect Pearls Mist in Perfect Pearl (my favorite!). 
I love the look of the flowers all scrunched up!  I tied white and pink tulle around the hat and glued the flowers on. Voila! 

Thank you for the Challenge Tim!
