April - His Heart

Hello friends

I hope you are all good!
Today I'm sharing with you a little Idea-ology project that Ive been working on...
I love to create with Idea-ology, I have to say its probably my favourite product lines from Tim Holtz.

I started by using the Paper fastener tin, I applied lots of layers of distress paints, gesso and crackle paints, sealed with a layer of vintage collage medium.
The tin was lined with papers and I cut down some of the Etcetera trims to create little shelves to rest some of the ideology pieces on.
I then framed it with one of the new Sizzix Trinket frames from the chapter 2 series, I gave it a distressed look using crackle paste and distress paints.
I added the baseboard paper doll and created a small hoop for the little boy to hold using some old rusty wire and then finished by attaching some of the wings to him..
The lid was lined with papers and another distressed frame was added, I distressed one of the new date dials using distress paints.  I added a star to the middle and some words from the clippings/

I fished by adding a Faucet knob to the top of the tin by drilling through using my trusty dremal. 

Thank you so much for passing by, feel free to leave a comment, I really do appreciate them.

Wishing you a lovely Easter break, I'm off to enjoy some precious time with family and friends
Best wishes
