If you want to join in the fun over the next two weeks... all you need to do is ... create something that ties in with our theme ... pop it on your blog ... and come back here and link up so everyone can see what you made! To start you on your way... take a look at some inspiration from the Design Team ...
Tim Holtz Alterations Flowers Die and she made her icy flower with Tim Holtz Distress Stickles rock candy and Glossy Accents Glue Dimensional Adhesive and shimmered with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist Dazzling Diamonds this is also used on the Christmas tree and on the sentiment. The papers that she used are from the Graphic 45 Christmas Past paper pack, everything was worked on with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Odds & Ends. The image is from the Internet.
Vintage Glass Glitter to accent her Tattered Floral flower and a she stamped a Flourish, which she traced with white glue and sprinkled on more Vintage Glass Glitter. The Bauble added just the right touch when coupled with the vintage tassel and of course a bit of Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Remember those paper chains, she created one to be used to hang the cone.
Crafty Secrets Seasonal Calendar to decorate each month of 2011. Added tags with ribbon to each month to make it easier to pull the tags out and then to each tag added various quotes from Tim Holtz Just Thoughts and Good Thoughts. With Maya Road and 7 Gypsies envelopes, there's plenty of room for her to add what she wishes.
Renaissance Fair, the Ornate On the Edge die, a Gold and Espresso paint dabber, and a Curio knob to turn an ordinary paper mache box into a vintage gift box!
It has been a while since I have played with a canvas ... so I used some Walnut Stain; Brushed Corduroy and Vintage Photo Distress Ink to age this one up. The papers are all from Tim's Lost and Found Paper Stack ... I have used Suze Weinberg's Bees Wax and several different Idea-ology embellishments to decorate finishing off with the Idea-ology Lost & Found Salvage Stickers for the lettering.Snow Flurries On the Edge die. Ginger and Latte Adirondack alcohol inks were applied to the back of the acetate with a Adirondack Alcohol Ink Applicator tool to create an aged, stained paper look. Then the remaining alcohol ink on the applicator tool was then used on a piece of vanilla CS to create a blotchy aged look for the Believe stamp. The CS was also misted with a mixture of water, Vintage Photo reinker and Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold, as was the panel that was embossed with the Tim Holtz Notepaper Texture Fade. Both pieces of CS were also sponged with Vintage Photo ink around the edges. The white petals of the crinoline flower were cut with the Alerations Tattered Floral die. The Believe stamp is from the Tim Holtz Mini Holidays stamp set.
mini holiday stamp set, masked, coloured with copics, then completely covered with crackle accents. She used gold Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber for the edges. It was then adhered to a frame shape made from Tim's vintage shabby papers, with inked edges and adhesive stones, the very edge has a generous amount of stickles too. Kim has added a crepe paper frill to the back of the ornament. The 'merry christmas' is also from the mini holiday stamp set, inked and covered with clear embossing powder! The glittery poinsettia shrink plastic flower was created using Tattered florals die, coloured with distress inks and lots of gold stickles glitter for the centre. Finished off with a bow made from Webster's pages Holiday Trim attached using a fabulous charm clip and jump ring. The Idea-ology facet covers a stamped image and is attached to ribbon with a trinket pin.
7 Gypsies "Calais" stamps he got recently. He combined them with some Tim Holtz classics, distress ink pads, a white paint dabber and a recycled box frame to produce this piece, which he says makes him think of tattoos coming to life!
