My Trinket Case - Altered


This is the Trinket Case from Tim Holtz that I altered.

 


This is how it finally ended up....but there were stages along the way to share.



These are 3 of the new really cool Mini Dies from Tim Holtz. They're cut from Grungeboard, inked, stamped, and enhanced with Glossy Accents. I love 'em!

I measured, cut, and Distress Inked my favorite collection of papers Lost and Found.

I like adding Tea Dye and Vintage Photo for added contrast in colors.




These are cut from the ATC sized papers....I hoarded them. But now I can see them on my desk.


 
The Plaquettes have Butterscotch Alcohol Ink dabbed on them.



Here is a closeup of the little Typewriter. I painted some of it with Silver Mixative and a brush.




This paper is from the Kraft Resist collection. I used Tombow markers to color.

Greys and blues were used to shadow that adds the depth.

Cannot wait to see what Tim's new Distress Markers can do on Kraft paper.




Then I used more Alcohol Ink and Mixatives to color the Pen Nibs.




Thinking it still needed more, I cut 1 inch strips of the Bottle Caps paper and added to the drawers



The Calendar Pages and Rulers are a fun addition to the inside.

Ignore the scattered occupants of the drawers...I've become a "digger". Never thought that would happen.

Something pretty phenomenal for a slightly OCD person like myself.




My favorite is the little Camera and all the little pieces that pop out so you can ink and paint.

Hope you find some inspiration here.


You can Pre-Order these goodies at Inspiration Emporium!

Get out the paper cutter, glue, and get started!!!!

Linda.......what an amazing piece of artwork this is. I mean this quite literally could sit in someone's home as a piece of artwork/home decor, it's truly stunning. But then again, so is most of your artwork. I can't wait to get those new dies of Tim's (typewriter, camera, fan and globe), so cute! Take care and thanks for always inspiring.
