Hello everyone, hope all of you are enjoying your Easter weekend!  I'm sharing my second project created for Tim Holtz Idea-ology 2021 release.  Tim shared his new release and all the fabulous projects from his makers on YouTube.  You can find his blog post with the replay and link to the makers here.

 I used this wonderful 5 1/2" lady from the new Engraving Layers package as my main feature of this Framed Panel. 

These Framed Panels are just like making a large card!  They are 6 1/2 by 9" and have a wood base, great for mixed media or heavier embellishments.  I used a paper from the new Backdrops Volume 2 pkg. for my background.

My frame was painted using Distress Paints (Ground Espresso first, then dry brush a light blue and green).  The butterfly paper (edges inked) was adhered with Collage medium to my  panel.  It's a bit narrower than the base, but the frame covers the bare sides.  Adhere the frame on top.

I also covered the back with Backdrop patterned paper.  To finish off the edge and cover the seam between the frame and the panel, I used this silver Pinked Trim Tape.  Love this tape for finishing off edges.  I hope it returns, as it was in the Christmas release.

These Engraving Layers are all black and white images, ready for you to create your magic!  I use Distress  Ink and a water brush to create my watercolours, but Distress Crayons, or markers work well too.

These Curio Frames are gorgeous right out of the package, you don't really need to alter them.  I just sanded my edges.

The Vignette Advert Panels are printed wooden panels that look like they have been stamped with vintage advertisements or labels.  The 5 pieces are all different sizes and bring a different texture to your projects.  I added a bit of Crackle Texture paste and paint to the edge.  I really loved using the Worn Wallpaper on this project and the new die-cut pieces included with the papers add an extra element.  My paper was adhered to the wood panel, except the corner where the label was stamped.  I just curled and distressed that corner of the paper.

I made a bunch of Small and Tiny Tattered flowers using the new Kraftstock stack Warm paper. This new kraftstock is amazing, it die-cuts like butter and distresses beautifully.

I created a mat with black kraftstock slightly larger than my wood panel and machine stitched the edge.  This was adhered to the middle of my framed panel, then the wood panel on top of that.  Now you can start adding the rest of your pieces. 

I added the Curio Frame, then my Worn Wallpaper die-cuts, flowers, and a Quote Flair button.  My large lady from the Engraved Layers was added to the left of that using foam adhesive dots, so she is raised higher.  I've tucked in more Sizzix die-cut flowers and Worn Wallpaper die-cuts at the bottom of the Lady. 

A Metallic Sticker with a metallic quote was added from the Metallic Sticker Book. A small metal Heart Adornment lightly coloured with Distress Crayon and tied with black cotton thread finished off my panel.

Here's another look at my finished piece!  Hope you love all these new releases from Idea-ology as much as I do!

I still have a few more projects to share from this release and also my projects from Tim's Sizzix Chapter 2 release which also had his YouTube debut Saturday April 3rd.  Can't wait to share those with you too!  I took a short break from playing with paper after I finished with my Sizzix projects to create with my other hobby  addiction, sewing.  I've been sewing clothes for our granddaughter who turned 1 in January and my fabric pile was growing a little too fast! We have only been able to see her once since the pandemic lockdowns, hopefully it will be safe to travel soon.

Until next time,
