Tim Holtz- Sewing Room Project

Another day of ugly weather, so I might as well post a picture of a project. I really got so engrossed in gluing my Graphic 45 Steampunk project, I forgot about the blog posts.

This is a hanger I found at Craft's Direct when I was up in Minnesota last fall. I'd been saving it for something special, and when I got my "Tim Goodies" I knew it was definitely what I needed. I love the black enamel knob on the hook. Wish I'd bought a boxful of them now!!! Would be a great class.

I sprayed it with Adirondacks Color Wash Sprays as well as the Grungepaper Dress Form and the Lavish Trimmings ribbon. I used 2 colors to make a variegated look Red Pepper and Sunset Orange.



This is using Tim's new Alteration Die Sewing Room. How fun is this??? It has the dress form, spool image and a button shape. The papers are his Crowded Attic Paper Stash collection and the Accoutrements top it off. I used a stamp from Mini-Ornates collection on the spool.

I penned in hand-stitching along the edges but used the real sewing machine down both sides.

The wings are Distress Inked with Old Paper and Sprayed with Kiwi Perfect Pearl Mists. Hard to see, but really sparkly in person. Love it on the Grungeboard Elements Wings.

This also has a crown from the new Adornments, the Plaquette number plate, and the Hanger Clips. See the details on his blog here.

Somewhat glad to be home and not at the airport trying to get back to Illinois. A lot of states here are bracing for a Winter Blizzard tonight. I can hardly wait!!

Be well and Be safe, all my Friends in ART!
