I am so honored to be a Guest Designer for the Frilly and Funkie blog today.
The current theme is "Knock on Wood." I was asked to incorporate some type of wood into my art. I decided to start with a medium size Etcetera tag from Tim Holtz.
I covered the tag in a piece of paper from the Tim Holtz Wallflower paper pack, using Distress Collage Medium to adhere it to the tag.
I flicked on Distress Paint in Black Soot, Tarnished Brass, and Picket Fence.
My next step was to tint this image I had of the Eiffel Tower. I used Distress Markers in Broken China and Mowed Lawn to give it a hand tinted look.
My first wood element is this mini framed panel from Tim Holtz. This is one of the small frames that comes in the two pack.
I painted the frame using Picket Fence Distress Paint and then spritzed it with Walnut Stain Distress Spray Stain. I used a very tiny paint brush to add Tarnished Brass Paint to the edges. I rubbed Distress Crayon in Walnut Stain on the frame to darken it up just a bit.
My second wood element is a Tim Holtz Vignette box. I whitewashed the box using Picket Fence and then used industrious stickers on the front. I used alcohol ink in gold and mushroom to color the
The outside edge has a wrap of decorative tape from the Tim Holtz Rose pack.
I filled the box with flowers and Tim Holtz beaded berries that were colored using gold alcohol ink.
My third wooden element is a Tim Holtz ruler. I sprayed the ruler with Tea Dye and Walnut Stain Spray Inks.
Here's another yummy shot of the flowers.
I added Tim Holtz Typography letters that were colored using Distress Paint in Tarnished Brass. Once the paint was dry I added alcohol ink in Mushroom and Distress Crayon in Black Soot to give them some patina.
The Tim Holtz paper dolls were given a pop of color with Distress Markers.
I added them to the edge of the frame and gave them some flowers.
For finishing touches I added Prima flowers and leaves. They were given a spritz of Distress Spray Stain in Walnut Stain. A large strip of vintage Dresden was added to the side too.
The top corner and bottom corner got a little stencil treatment. I used a Crafters Workshop stencil and Ranger Texture paste for some dimension. The color was added using Distress Crayons in Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo, and Black Soot.
Sari ribbon and a Tim Holtz loop pin add interest to this corner.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and are inspired to enter the challenge.
