Tim Holtz Creativation 2019 Blog Hop - Dreamer Ideaology




Welcome to the Tim Holtz Creativation 2019 Blog Hop!
This is either your first stop on the hop or you are here from Stacy Hutchinson's Tattered Nest blog.  Isn't she amazing? I'm a huge fan of Stacy's designs and art!
For my sample, I decided to share a piece I made for the Ideaology booth at Creativation.

Tim Holtz released some wonderful new Ideaology products that fit beautifully with his existing line of Ideaology through Advantus. I have several of my favorite new and old items on this project from Creativation 2019.
For this project I used both of the Vignette Trays that come in the package together. I painted both trays with Picket Fence Distress Paint and wiped off the excess so they looked worn and kind of "pickled."
For the larger tray, I spread a nice layer of Opaque Crackle Texture Paste from Ranger all over the top of the box, then let it crackle and dry. Some of it chipped off which I LOVE!! Look at that gorgeous crackly goodness.
For the second tray I tore a piece of Worn Wallpaper and applied it with Collage Medium Matte so that it lined up with the top and bottom of the smaller tray.
In the top 2/3 of the smaller tray I attached one of the GORGEOUS NEW Lace Baseboard Frames. On top of it I added a NEW Metal Gate across the bottom of the frame.  Then along the left side I attached one of the beautiful botanical pieces from the NEW Keepsakes Ephemera Pack.
I added a couple of leaves and branches from the Sizzix Mini Greens cut from Distress Water Color Cardstock and colored with the Walnut Stain Distress Marker. There are a few flowers from the Bouquet package colored with Victorian Velvet.
I topped it all off with this young lady who obviously has big dreams.  She is one of the NEW Baseboard Dolls. I chose a few Clippings Stickers to tell her story.
 Because her dreams are full of "stars that glitter" I took a Jeweled Charm and put an Adornment Star in the middle of it as well as two Adornment Stars at the bottom on both sides of the Typography word DREAMER.  I wanted the stars to glitter and also to fit with the color scheme, so I colored them all with Rose Gold Alcohol Ink, then spritzed them with Distress Resist Spray, and then quickly added a little Clear Rock Candy Glitter with the Glitter Duster. To finish off the Jeweled Charm, I tied a small piece of Eclectic Elements Craft Thread in a bow.
The final touches were to add the small and large Crocheted Lace (Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 2 release in April) die cuts around the edges of each tray. I cut the Crocheted Lace out of heavy Kraft Stock and then colored it with Picket Fence Distress Stain so it looked pickled like the Vignette Trays. Then I attached it with Distress Collage Medium Matte. 
Once that is done, adhere the smaller Vignette Tray to the top of the large tray right in the center with Distress Collage Medium.  Then add the Vignette Accent pieces to the top and the bottom corners of the larger tray.

Once it is dry, it is ready to display. You can lean it on a book shelf or mantle, or if you want to hang it you will need to add some eye hooks and a wire across the back of the large tray so you can hang it.
Thank you so much for visiting my little dreamer today. If you are following along with the Tim Holtz Creativation Blog Hop, you are in for such a treat! You will be going to Vicki Evans blog next so prepare to be wowed!

Remember, there are PRIZES….
Please leave a comment on as many participant blogs as possible before February 9th at midnight PST and 3 winners will be announced on February 10th from the different blogs.

Thank you for this incredible inspiration!
