I am still busy being obsessed with birds nests, birds and eggs.... So i have altered this shadow box and used my new Tim Holtz stamp set :)
the corner embellishments are from a brand new range from Calico Crafts. (keep your eye on those as lots of great shapes, embellishments, surfaces and stencils will be getting added to the range a bit at a time.)
I made this project with the main intention of joining in with the fabulous new challenge site "A Vintage Journey". its their first stop on the journey they are taking us on. and the theme is very open (as long as it is inspired by Tim Holtz in some way.
Its clear where the more obvious influences are on mine when it comes to the stamps and the metal word plaque; but for me, almost every project i make is inspired by Tim Holtz, in one way or another. Before he came on to the craft scene, I was making pink and purple teddy-bear cards and the likes. I became intensely interested in the vintage distressed shabby look he was bringing to us and the fact it could be as suitable for male themed crafting as it is for female themes. From then on in, although i have moved on to more paints and mediums etc, every project I have made since, has had a "faux vintage", "shabby" or "distressed" look or influence. his influence is with me constantly.
