T is for Tim Holtz

Pin It
The second part of the "T is for" challenge at Two Peas includes Tim Holtz. I first embossed some snowflakes on the Tim Holtz blue paper in silver, gold, and blue embossing powders.

I made the snowman from Tim Holtz's Bigz die out of grunge board and grunge paper. I painted his body white with the snow cap paint dauber, his top hat black with the black paint dauber, and his nose orange with the orange paint dauber. Then I sanded the hat a smidge and added Vintage Photo distress ink to some of the bits I sanded off. For the charcoal eye I took one of Tim's long brads and held it with a tweezer, dipped it in Versamark, then sprinkled with black embossing powder and heat embossed it. Please make sure you use tweezers for this step, the brad gets extremely hot! I bore a hole through where I wanted the eye with Tim'z poker tool and placed the brad. I glued all the bits together with glossy accents and adhered it to my page. Lastly I ran a sheet of plastic through Tim's snow embossing folder and set it over the snowman with Tim's brads and washers.

I painted the die cut snowflakes with paint daubers and let them dry. Then I went over the edges with different blue distress inks. Adhered them with glassy accents to the page. All the white snowflakes are Jolee's stickers. I edged the adage ticket with Vintage Photo and stuck it down with Tim's Charm Clips. This was a very simple page, well except for the snowman. I actually didn't want to make it too complicated so that the snowman could shine a bit more.

Thanks for stopping by and if you'd like any more info, please let me know!

Inky and glittery fingers for all!
