Ok, so I am now officially smitten with Finnabair's work on her blog. She uploaded a page called Tim Holtz - Journey and I thought I would also create something using as much of Tim's idea-ology range as possible. This is a one off for sure as the products cost a fortune and I normally eek them out across as many pages and projects as possible, but seeing as I had dinner with the man last April 2011 and I have not yet gotten round to scrapping the event, I thought I would do this triptych in his honour.
I painted the sides of 3 6"x6" canvases black and added his color core paper to the tops of them and using the Graphic 45 hinges I joined them all together.
I started with his resist kraft paper which I punched randomly and inked with Distress inks in Walnut Stain, Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door. I gave each one a splat of Picket Fence Distress stain and dried it quickly so that it stayed nice and white.
After gluing this onto the canvases, I set about adding the idea-ology. The final touch is the Rock Candy Crackle paint that I added randomly to each canvas and set aside to dry.
