  1. Creativation 2017 : idea-ology 2

    1st February, 2017 by iGirlZoe

    Hello everyone. Thank you so much for your kind comments on my last post, I really appreciate it. Today I am back with part 2 of my samples for the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Booth.

    iGirlZoe: Tim Holtz Creativation 2017My second sample, a clipboard memo pad, was inspired by the gorgeous new memoranda paper stash and I HAD to use one of the new idea-ology rulers!

    To begin with, I disassembled an idea-ology mini clipboard. Covered the clip with picket fence distress paint, dried a little and then wiped away the excess with kitchen paper. I repeated this process using evergreen bough distress paint. Finally I dry brushed with tarnished brass distress paint.

    I used the notebook stamp from the Tim Holtz school desk stamp set (CMS057), with jet black archival ink and stamped onto paper from the new memoranda paper stash. I scored a line near the top and punched holes.

    I covered the mini clipboard with paper from the Memoranda Paper Stash, ephemera from the snippets ephemera pack and design tape. I used linen ribbon to hold the memo pad together and adhered it to the clipboard. I added an aged pencil with twine to an adornments index clip which I aged with distress paint.

    As a final flourish I added one of my new favourite idea-ology items, the adornments stars, which I aged with distress paint and attached with collage glue. …I won’t tell you how many packs of these I have ordered, but I would get in there quickly!

    I snapped an idea-ology ruler in half, sanded with a sanding block and stained with vintage photo distress stain. The buttons are actual vintage buttons that Paula Cheney kindly sent me from her personal stash, (you should see the collection she has… swoon)!

    Again, a big thanks to Tim Holtz, Mario Rossi and Paula Cheney for inviting me to be part of this amazing team.

    You can pre-order all of the new Tim Holtz products from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

    I’ll be back on Friday with the samples that I made for the Sizzix booth.

    Thanks for taking the time…

  2. Creativation 2017 : idea-ology 1

    30th January, 2017 by iGirlZoe

    Hello everyone. If you’re anything like me, the weekend before last was a write off as I spent it glued to social media waiting for facebook live videos and photos from this years Creativation, (formerly CHA).

    Last week I spent pre-ordering all the new products and this week I’m going to share the samples I made for the Tim Holtz Idea-ology and Sizzix Alterations Booths.

    iGirlZoe: Tim Holtz Creativation 2017My first sample is a secret garden inspired altered assemblage clock, using lots of the new idea-ology line by Tim Holtz.

    iGirlZoe: Tim Holtz Creativation 2017
    To begin with, I disassembled an assemblage clock. Covered it with picket fence distress paint, dried a little and then wiped away the excess with kitchen paper. I repeated this process using evergreen bough distress paint. Finally I dry brushed with tarnished brass distress paint. Once dry I reassembled the clock.

    I added an crinkle ribbon that I stained with antique linen distress spray. I glued a little green moss to the top of the clock with glossy accents, adding some of the new bouquet findings flowers which I stained with fossilized amber and picked raspberry distress spray. I covered the center or the flower with scattered straw distress paint and added a few tiny drops of glossy accents to give a faux water droplet effect. Finally I attached my favourite piece from the new snippets ephemera. I seriously love this! Everything was edged with vintage photo distress ink.

    I aged a swivel clasp with adornments treasures and adornments keys with gold mixative alcohol ink and hung from the clock handle.

    I covered the inside of the clock with paper from the new memoranda paper stash. Glued moss along the bottom of the clock and added botanical layer flowers. I added mushroom alcohol ink to a salvaged doll, altered her dress with a little victorian velvet distress paint. I added a crown and wand from the adornments treasures that I stained with gold mixative alcohol ink. I then nestled amidst the botanical layers.

    It was such an honor to make a small contribution to the incredible Tim Holtz booths. A big thanks to Tim Holtz, Mario Rossi and Paula Cheney for inviting me to be part of this amazing team. Also to you, who take the time to visit my blog and instagram and leave comments cheering me on, I really appreciate it.

    You can pre-order all of the new Tim Holtz products from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

    I’ll be back on Wednesday with part 2 of my samples.

    Thanks for taking the time…

  3. Festive Frame

    13th November, 2016 by iGirlZoe

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… I’m delighted and very humbled to be following the exceptional talents of Audrey Pettit and Emma Williams, to share a project that I’ve made for the holiday inspiration series over on Tim Holtz’s blog.

    iGirlZoe: Festive Frame
    I wanted to make a home decor piece to display in my new home over the holiday season. I’m head over heals for this years Tim Holtz holiday products, many of which I used in my project, including the new gilded remnant rubs (YES I SAID GILDED)!!

    If you haven’t seen the new holiday products, they are HERE and HERE. Once these holiday hotcakes are gone, they’re gone, so get them while you can!

    You can see the full project and tutorial HERE. I really hope it inspires you to make something during the holiday season. Be sure to pop back to Tim’s blog regularly to see more holiday inspiration to come.

    Have a great week.
