Industrial Clock

Here is another project I made using some techniques from Tim Holtz CC102 class for day 1. I actually made this as a gift that I will be giving my son for his 26th birthday, he had requested I make him a clock a while back, so finally here it is. Hoping he enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it, the eroded metallic and industrial techniques were my "faves" from Tim's classes that day.

"Merry Christmas" Card

Here is yet another card I made using some techniques that I learned in class for Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 102. Even though this is a Christmas card, I didn't go with the usual red and green, instead I went with a nice wintery mix of the blue, white and silver that go so well together. I also created the background on Tim Holtz water color paper which gave it an awesome texture.

I used the Ranger Foil Cardstock for the base of the card

"Enjoy the Journey" Card

I just want to share with you that I took a couple of Tim Hlotz Creative Chemistry classes and learned so many awesome techniques, looking forward to sharing all of those with you as soon as I can. Tim Holtz has so many products out there that make it so easy to create pretty much anything your heart desires, definitely challenges me to think outside the box and/or out of my comfort zone. This is a card I made using several techniques, but my favorite is the tarnished silver technique, but using brass instead and I love how it turned out.

Halloween Altered Paintbrush

This is my take on an altered paintbrush that was originally made for me from a previous swap that was sent to me this past July, "Return Swap by Kelley Rooks", please check it out. Her take was more in a grunge/steampunk style, which I absolutely loved. She had also made the handle portion of the paintbrush for me to alter and sent it along with the swap. So being that Halloween is coming up, I decided to do a Halloween version of the paintbrush, I can only hope she is happy with it. Thank you Kelley, I had a lot of fun making it.

My twin boys got a kick of some of the Halloween embellishments (the haunted tree and skull), so I had them each add one to a tag as part of their contribution... at 14, I'll take what I can get, even if it's 5 minutes of their time, lol!!


Nick added the haunted tree!
