Chunky ATC the Tim Holtz Way


A Chunky ATC is cut from a piece of 2x4. They're only 3 1/2" wide (not 4) so you just cut each 2 1/2" wide....for those who had not seen them before! FUN!

Here's the 3rd assignment for November for Tim. A really fun Chunky ATC. I used lots of things on both the front and back....as I usually say, too much fun!
The little Memo Pin and Foliage piece instructions are in an earlier post.

The back has a plastic watch piece over the clock face that causes the glare. I used the clock from Lost and Found papers, the rest are from his Retro Grunge collection. The Curio Knob tops it all off. The little Crown Charm has Alcohol Ink added for color. It's hard to see here, but the papers are all sprayed with Sunflower Sparkle, Perfect Violet, and Kiwi Perfect Pearls Mists.



The legs are wooden candle holders(upside down glued to black wooden discs), painted brown, and Black Soot Distress Stickles added for a cool vintage touch. The calendar sheets are from the Tissue Tape set Traveler.



I used the Rosette die with various Perfect Pearls and Stickles to add more color. The wings have Pumice Stone Distress Ink and Diamond Stickles on them. The Timepiece and Spinner top the center of the piece. I used Bottle Green Alcohol Ink to give a bit more color to the clock, then sanded it down for the numbers to show.


I added a couple of Word Keys on the sides that were layered up on old flat beads. The ATC stamp on the back is Tim's Blackbird Component. The front is various stamps from Rockstar.

That's it for today. Have a great week...and be good to each other!

wowzers. I better dust off another chunk of wood and step up my game. Now this would make a great class! Yes, we probably could make one at home, but what fun it would be to get together to use all these items and see what each of us creates.

Deb Smith said...

This is so "stinking cute"!! Really mean it. There are lots of left over chunks of wood at my house what with Gary busy making pens for the holidays. Can you come up with anything to use sawdust for???

Have a Happy Thanksgiving with your family and hope to see you next week,
