Creativity and Bright Ideas...

Hi everyone, I'm glad you've stopped by today!  I'm sharing one of the Tim Holtz Sizzix Creativation Booth projects I made. This one is spotlighting that awesome new filament die. I've got a lot of bright ideas for this one... pun intended (ha,ha,ha).
Let me walk you thru how I put it together.  First I die cut the clear portion of the filament bulb from leftover product packaging. You know the plastic/acrylic packaging that the Sizzix Bigz dies come in... if you don't have any of that laying around, you could always cut it from a sheet of thin acrylic.  I also think mica sheets would be really great for this too, but the stock I had on hand was just a little too short.  Then for the filament, fuse and screw cap... I attached a sheet a foil tape to a sheet of heavystock to give the foil tape a little more stability. Then die cut using the filament die.
I used several different colors of distress paint and a sponge to pounce color onto all parts of the bulb. Then followed up with additional distressing using mushroom alcohol ink.
Now moving onto the background. I attached another sheet of foil tape to a sheet of heavystock and ran it through my vagabond using the mechanics 3D texture fades embossing folder. I absolutely love Tim Holtz's line of Sizzix 3D Texture Fades! Again, I applied several different colors of distress paint then buffed a lot of the color off using a fine steel wool. (When using the steel wool please wear protective gloves or you will be super itchy.) To give it a little more distress, I applied mushroom alcohol ink.
The mini framed panel was colored with distressed paint and shaded with distressed crayon. I gave the mechanics background a little trim before attaching it to the back of the panel using distress collage medium matte.
I used some distress crayon and mushroom alcohol ink to the quote band. Then attached with a little linen ribbon, craft thread and long fastener brads.
Everything was assembled using a combination of distress collage multi medium and clear foam tape.  I hope you give it a try, it's a really fun project!
Thanks so much for the visit.  I really appreciate it, have a wonderful day!  xx

Make Everyday Count...

Hi everyone, I'm so glad you stopped by today!   The release date for the New Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 2 dies is here and I'm super excited to share my Creativation 2019 projects with you!  If you didn't catch it, Tim shows the entire New Chapter 2 release on a Facebook live.  You can watch it here on his blog. There's so many amazing projects from several designers that he shares, you won't want to miss all the wonderful inspiration.  I am super happy to see Tim looking so great and back doing what he loves!  Today I'm sharing a Tim Holtz Etcetera Tag, I made for the Tim Holtz Sizzix booth.
Let me walk you thru how I put it together. To start with, I pulled some small patterned paper from the memorandum paper stash collection. I trimmed down the pattern papers.  Then attached paper pieces overlapping some areas, to a small etcetera tag using collage medium.
Then I die cut the phrase "make every day count" using the Society Bigz XL alphabet and the Adorned Thinlits intricate scrolls from mixed media heavystock. The mini detailed butterflies were diecut using more of the memorandum paper stash. You know I was actually thinking, even though this alphabet is on a larger scale... I'm going to use it on some statement cards for various occasions. I'll let you know how it goes (wink).  I just love that font...
I arranged the wording and scrolls to my liking and glued in place using more collage medium and then went over the entire tag with another layer of collage medium to seal the surface and allow the distressed crayons to move much easier. I trimmed any paper pieces hanging off the edges.  I chose several neutral colors of distressed crayons. I smeared the various colors of crayon around the tag and moved the color into nooks and crannies with my fingers. Anything that I wanted to lift the excess distressed crayon from, I just used a dry towel on.
I broke the ruler and distressed it using some walnut stain distress ink.  Then attached the mini detailed butterflies and ruler with you guessed it more collage medium, I tell you that stuff is the best glue I use on everything! The tag received a small splattering of white (watered down) gesso.
To finish it off I dyed some crinkle ribbon with a few different blue hues of distress spray stain dried well and tied into a bow.
I hope you liked todays project.  Thanks so much for the visit.  I really appreciate it, have a wonderful day!  xx
