A Very Tim Christmas!

Christmas is sneaking up on us once again, I hope you’re all getting in the spirit of the holidays!!

If you’ve been to the store lately or follow in social media you’ve seen all the amazing new Tim Holtz goodies Lori has in store!

I picked up my fair share when I visited the store for Lori’s annual open house.  Yup I’m in love with it all!

For the base of my project I used a Tim Holtz Vignette Box, I’ve had these in my stash for a while just waiting for the right project.  All of the papers are also from Tim Holtz, 8×8 Christmas paper pack.

Look how adorable those little Decorative Deer are!!!  I coloured them with alcohol inks to bring them to life!

The Mini & Small Trees were sprayed with a dark green mist, then I brushed some white gesso & glitter onto the branches to give them a snowy effect.  The misting process was quite messy but so worth it!

In the top corner I pulled out the Tattered Poinsettia & Holiday Green dies.  Similar to the trees I added some white gesso and glitter to the greens giving them that snow kissed look!  The center of the poinsettia was finished with Tim’s Beaded Berries…OMG so perfect!!

I even dug up an old Tim Holtz tutorial to make the fake snow for the my little deer & trees to sit in!  I think this vintage Santa from the Christmas Ephemera pack was the perfect way to finish off my little Christmas shadow box!

There are still some goodies left at the store, but you might want to hurry so you have time to finish all your Christmas projects before the big day!

Trick or Treat

Halloween is coming and I have a spooky treat for you today, and that’s no trick!

I can’t remember the last time I created a Halloween project, but I was inspired seeing lots of others making things that I decided to dig through my stash and see what I could find!

I found some Tim Holtz dies that I had forgotten about as I was exploring my stash looking for items to use.  The graveyard edge die and spiderweb are too fun not to use….can I use them on other projects I wonder.

img_2067Covered the shadow box with black gesso to start then treated the outside edges to some web like ‘ribbon’ that makes for amazing texture.  Now that I’ve used on non-halloween projects before!

To really bring out the texture I dry brushed some Finnabair Was in copper over top.  I have  to say these waxes are DREAMY!  Lori has a hard time keeping them in stock!

I filled the inside with this fun little skeleton and other spooky items.  The mini lights are just fantastic!

To top it off I added these fun mini bottles filled with some micro beads, some more bones & gravestones to finish it off!

I can’t wait to get out more of my Halloween decorations to go with this spooky little box!

Hope you find some treats of your own….and maybe a few tricks!
