Umbrella Man Collage for CHA-Full Peek

Tim's new Alterations are extremely cool. So are the new Idea-ology pieces and papers. The Adirondack Sprays cover like nobodies business. Mix them up and the colors are really rich. I used Butterscotch, Red Pepper, Espresso, and Sunset Orange on this paper mache wall hanging. Blend them with a brush and they are stunning!!!

I used a lot of the new products and some of the products that are already out.

New from Tim: you can see specifics on his blog here

Salvage Stickers - Crowded Attic

Corked Vials - little bottles you will LOVE

Alpha Parts - Plastic twist off letters you can paint

Plaquettes - Number plates that ROCK

Umbrella Man - BigZ Die (Pre-Order from Inspiration Emporium)

Paper Stack - Crowded Attic

Current Products Used:

Stampers Anonymous Stamps - At the Movies, Artful Flight, Regal Findings. Stamped with Jet Black Archival.

Alcohol Inks in the bottles - Raisin, Rust, Espresso.

Distress Inks on Grungeboard Alphabet - Old Paper, Black Soot.

And last Perfect Pearls on windows - the new Blue Raspberry.

I used Pitch Black Adirondack ink on Umbrella Man.

This was one of my favorite projects for Tim. I used the new little Bottles. They are so much fun to work with by adding alcohol ink in them, swirling it around, and letting it dry before adding beads or other embellishments.

Come back again. I'll keep uploading pictures of the projects I sent for CHA, there are about a dozen more!!!
