Tim Holtz Holiday Merriment canvas mini-class on the Tim Holtz blog I knew I wanted to create the project even though Christmas was a few days ago. After Christmas and all the rushing around at Christmas I looked forward to making a project without having to think up anything. I didn't have some of the supplies so I had fun improvising!
Here is my finished project!!!
Tim Holtz mini-class on his blog!!!
I found my own vintage girl with santa "christmas relative" on the web here. I found the candy canes wrapper ephemera here at littlemisscelebration.com. I didn't have a Tim Holtz monocle so I used a Tim Holtz fragment (clear plastic tag) and stamped on it because I didn't have the Christmas remnant rubs. The stamp didn't work so well, so I fixed it up carefully with a sharpie.I sprayed the back of my "fake monocle" with icicle spray for windows to make it frosted with ice crystals on the back, then I painted around the edge with silver paint for model cars. I glittered around the "christmas relative" and the fake monocle. I wish I had a Tim Holtz holiday word band, but I didn't so I used a different word band. I added some bottlecaps I made using vintage images.
For the rest I followed the instructions on the Tim Holtz blog using the same supplies as Tim.
I love, love, love this project!
Thanks Tim for the free mini-class! I am happy that I was able to complete my mini-class project in the comfort of my own craft room and it was tons of fun to make!
