Welcome... it's the start of the week and we're now on our third
and this week... it's all about your Lord of 'Tim Holtz' style...
This altered tin came about as I found it so so hard to narrow down to just a few Tim Holtz inspired elements... Although I picked a pretty small item to alter I think I crammed as much as I could on it LOL! I prepared the tin with pitch black paint dabber and (as my crackle paint has dried up) I went ahead and used elmers glue and a blue paint badder for the crackle effect. Tattered florals is one of my go to dies cut with TH vintage shabby papers, inky edges and perfect pearls mini mister mist.. Of course I had to add a couple of tickets and grunge elements inked with distress ink and embossing powder.
For added fun I cut TH heart wings from shrink plastic to make my own magnetic charm which of course menas it stays onto the tin without adhesive. As I might be a little impatient I applied glossy accents on the top before the silver paint had time to dry which resulted in the speckled effect! Then for a little change on the fabulous 'Wendy Vechi' memo pin embellishment, I inked a foliage flower with alcohol ink adhered a stone in the centre and continued to fill memo pin with glossy accents. Which after a couple of days still hasn't dried clear must be the metal with metal too enclosed unlike using paper.
