TIM HOLTZ CREATIVATION 2019 BLOG HOP


Hello everyone! Welcome to the Tim Holtz Creativation 2019 Blog Hop and Give-Away! If you are following along, you have just hopped over from the very talented Emma WilliamsRichelle Christensen is hosting this blog hop featuring inspiration from all those who contributed to the Tim Holtz booths. Make sure you visit all these amazing artists and leave a comment on everyone's blog for a chance to win prizes!


Today I am sharing a "Fairy Garden Clock" I created for the Tim Holtz Idea-ology booth.


This Assemblage Clock(TH93065) has been painted, an embossed metallic strip around the outside and inside, the glass removed, and a fairy garden placed inside.  My reaction as soon as I saw these wings in my secret goodie box?  I think I gasped, I'm sure it was the same as all the other designers, lol!  Couldn't wait to use them, and there's so many in the package!


My first step was removing all the extra parts of the clock; legs, glass, etc. I lightly sanded the clock, just to give it a bit more grip, as it is a smooth metal.  Everything was then painted with 2 coats of Ranger Ink's Black Gesso. I then dry brushed my Distress Paints in Forest Moss, Peeled Paint and Fossilized Amber onto my clock base and parts.
 Next, I ran a sheet of Ranger's Foil Sheets in the 3D Botanical Texture Fade through my Vagabond Machine. I cut the width to the same as the texture fade, ran it through once, then embossed from the other end.  You are going to need a strip for the outside of the clock and one for the inside.  If you need to piece extra strips, I do it at the bottom,underneath the clock or inside, where it isn't visible. These embossed pieces might tear a bit when embossing, but don't worry, the foil is very sticky and once painted, you won't notice when they are placed on the clock.



First paint your strips with (I think I cut them about 1 5/8 - 1 3/4 wide) Black Soot, then dry brush Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Fossilized Amber, and a bit of Dried Marigold and Tumbled Glass. Peel off the backing a bit on one end and apply around your outside edge of your clock.  I did not apply the strip right to the edge as it was curved, so I tried to keep it on just the flatter part.  Attached your top clock parts and the legs. 


 I didn't replace the clamps on the inside that held the glass in place. Screw in the legs. Then apply your strip to the inside of the clock.  It won't fit perfectly flat, there will be lumps from the screws, but you won't really notice once you have filled it.  


The inside and outside back of the clock was covered with patterned paper from the Wallflower Collection(TH93110).  Now you can fill your clock inside with your fairy garden scene.  I glued down a piece of moss from the craft store. I also adhered a Metal Gate piece(TH93961) at a slant.  Leave enough room for a thimble toadstool to go behind it.


Using a Tiny Vial (TH93201) and Corked Vial (TH92899) as my toadstool bases, I filled these with Distress Glitter, then sealed the bottoms.  The Thimbles (TH93791) were my tops.  These were tinted with Distress Paint and a bit of Clear Rock Candy Glitter added to the top.  My Thimbles were glued to the end of the vials.  The short tiny vial was turned upside down and then adhered to the thimble. 


My Thimble Toadstools were then glued to the clock inside. These new Baseboard Dolls (TH93796) are perfect for 3-d decor items, these were tinted with Distress Markers.  I added on the new Transparent Wings(TH93785) to my dolls and then adhered these to my clock base. 



 The one standing has a threaded needle in her hand and the one sitting has her hand inside a vial filled with fairy dust (Distress Glitter).  A bit of glitter was added randomly to the wings and doll's hair.  I also added in some flowers(Bouquet Findings TH93569) coloured with Distress stain spray (Dried Marigold and Scattered Straw).  There's also a small star wand (TH93572 Treasures Adornments) with a bit of glitter applied, stuck in the moss.


To finish off my Fairy Garden Clock, I tinted some ribbon with Distress Stain Spray, and crocheted a chain with Tim Holtz Black Craft Thread(Eclectic Elements - Neutral set) and the new Mini Pins (TH93790) woven into this.  I added two charms on each end, one of them a hand from the Milagros Adornments pkg (TH93676) and the other a Story Stick (TH93680).
Hope you enjoyed my tutorial and thanks so much for visiting.  I have a few more projects from Creativation 2019 that I will be featuring here in the near future.  Hope you visit again!

I just love this - a really charming tiny fairy garden. Your winged figures look right at home, and the quirky Alice-in Wonderland feel is so cool. Great ageing on the alarm clock too.
