I have had a Tim Holtz Configurations Box laying around for well over a year and decided to finally do something with it... I just started painting and inking away.... and here is what the magic created:
I had so much fun creating this little inspirational box for my studio! Most everything on here started out white... then they met my Adirondack Color Wash Sprays!
Here are some details:
Do you guys remember sand art? Using glitter and the 7Gypsies glass jars I created a scrapper's version of sand art! It was so fun and brought me back to my childhood days! I used several different types of Tim Holtz's idea-ology metals throughout my box.
These were little jars that I filled with water and then dropped a little drop of Color Wash in to... The box is covered in Tim Holtz Tissue Paper that has been sprayed with a mixture of water and Color Wash. The jacks are my favorite! I bought them from a little local shop that buys out estate sales... they were a treasure!!!
Here is another shot showing off one of my absolutely new favorite products: Stampendous
Mica Fragments in Tarnished. The skeleton key is another vintage find... a yard sale at a home that is on the National Historic Registry!
Here is a close up of the flower grouping. The big flowers are Joliee's and were white! The little ones are from Prima and they didn't start off the color they ended up!
This is the side of one of the little boxes in my configuration box. I had painted everything black to start with but with this little box I went back and laid a stencil on it and dabbed Glossy Accents on it... I then sprinkled with glitter and got this cool effect!
The side of the box is wrapped in metal duct tape that I ran through the Texture Boutique. HERE is an older post I did with the same technique and a little bit of instructions...
I hope you have enjoyed my little box of creative goodness. It sits in my studio and inspires me to imagine and to take the journey down whatever creative path I might cross!
