Creativation part 3

Hello friends
Hope you are all good!

A really quick post to share with you the last of my Creativation samples
 that I made for the Tim Holtz Idea-ology booth.

This trio is made from Vignette panels, they are held together with book rings
Each panel has been decorated with the new wallpaper, I then added lots of ephemera, embellishments and frames

This sample is made from a printer tray
I added some of the distress crazing to the background which gave a nice distressed/worn look
I then drilled one of the pulleys into the top of the tray and fixed it to the base and added some string 
I then added lots of my favourite Idea-ology to the tray 
I lined the pocket watch with one of the new milk caps, then sewed a butterfly onto it 
The Boy paper doll fitted perfectly onto the blocks, (he's one of my favourite dolls!)

Thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my previous posts...I really appreciate each and everyone, it has been such an honour to create the samples for Tim, Ive enjoyed every minute!
Please check out Tim's blog here for more photos and video from the show!
I will be back very soon with more makes
Have a lovely week!

Follow your ❤️

Hello friends

Hope you are all good!
As its Valentines day this week I thought 
I would share a vintage inspired make with you...

I started with a scrap piece of wood, to which I added lots of layers of gesso and texture crackle paste, I then coloured it using distress paints.
Next I used some of the new collage floral papers (yep... I'm using colour!) onto one of the new large cabinet card frames using collage medium, I also layered the background 
using some of the new wallpaper from Idea-ology.
Then I selected the photo from the found relatives pack and added layers, 
stitching and some Idea-ology embellishments.

To finish I added a couple of butterflies and a word chip
and added a rusty wire to the wood to make a hanging.

As always please feel free to leave a comment, I appreciate each and every one
Wishing you a very Happy Valentines!

I will be back soon with more of my samples from the Creativation show!
best Wishes

(Thank you Richele for organising the hop, it was so much fun x!)

Today I'm sharing 3 more of my samples made for the Idea-ology booth at Creativation 2018,
starting off with this clipboard...
I wanted to create a grungy look and set to work applying lots of distress paints and collage medium
 To add a pop of colour I added one of the Milagro Adornments, along with the bird...just love these charms!
This next sample was created using a Vignette box, the new panel frames fit perfectly over the top to create a shadow box 
The inside was decorated with ephemera, a paper doll and those cool clock hands and not forgetting that fabulous handle also from the new Idea-ology release! 
This sample is also made up also using a vignette box, the inside is decorated with the new wallpaper, ephemera and paper doll
To finish I painted the finials and added them to the box, oh and added some stitching to the frame
These samples were really fun to create,

 Ok so here's my first sample...
I started with a framed panel, , the actual frame was painted using gesso and distress paints, I sanded it back to give a shabby look and sealed it using vintage collage medium.
The background was created using Tim's Memoranda papers, I created lots of torn papers then glued them in place, again using the collage medium.
When the papers were dry I then stencilled Distress grit paste through one of Tim's stencils (THS020)
When the paste had completely dried by itself, I used distress crayons and distress paints to give it a worn/vintage look.
  I then got to use the fabulous new Aviary collage paper!
This Collage paper is so much fun!
I cut the two birds and foliage out and using the collage brushes & collage medium, then decoupaged the collage paper onto the the torn background. 
The final part was to add some of the Idea-ology embellishments, I added one of the new measurements metal rulers, sitting one of the paper dolls on top of it and then added the word band.
The stars were painted with distress paint, I added the words from the Clippings stickers and that lovely door lock is a new release too!
Here it is on display in the Idea-ology booth! 
Next sample is one of my favourites to create as it uses the vignette boxes
I covered the box in papers and distressed it, part of the new releases are the baseboard frames which can be used over the top of the vignette boxes....
I added another metal 'Measurements"ruler to the base, followed by a section of Milk caps.
The Quote token is also another new release and another new favourite of mine.
The paper doll is a new member to the dolls, I added him some butterfly wings from the botanical ephemera pack.
To finish the box I painted up some of the finials and added some mini keys to the base and added one of the new Mini Hardware pulls to the frame....
