Tim holtz Inspired LO

So, on one of the scrapbook forums I visit I was challenged to create a LO with a few specific details. I had to include either raffia, burlap or other natural fibers and I had to use either Tim Holtz product or techniques. I started with light green sheet of Tim Holtz core'dinations Distressed cardstock. I sanded it down and distressed the edges. I used the Fall Line of Tim's distress ink along with Forest Moss and Scattered Straw to ink up my paper. I embossed a sheet of glassine paper with the Paisley embossing folder from Provo Craft, then distressed the edges and inked that up. Using more of Tim's paper I created 12 rosettes in the 3 different sizes that they come in (also, some Tim paper as photo mats). Inked up my Rosettes with Gathered Twigs and adhered everything to my inked up cardstock. I then picked out a ticket titled BLISS, inked it up and added MOMENTS to it with a tiny paper clip. OSV stickers as my title, raffia behind my rosettes and stickles and rhinestones on my rosettes. I made a small journaling tag with sticky bag canvas on a manilla tag. Inked my tag up with the fall colors, stapled some raffia to it, and did some journaling with my Distress Markers. I am pretty pleased with how it came out.

Now to go make more Rosettes to make some Pumpkins, Pinecones, and Turkeys! Gotta decorate fall. Will post once they are made.

Finally! Tim Holt Distress Markers and More!

That's right! It was a long wait! But I finally got my mitts on a set of Tim Holtz Distress Markers! I have already used them a few times in creating ATCs. I cannot wait to use them for so much more. So much has happened and gone on since I was last on here. I said it before and will say it again - I need to get on here more. I have made a few changes and upgrades to my scrap oasis. Will take pics of the new additions later. Some of the new additions are some awesome aprons to wear while scrapping sign by Tim Holtz and Mario Rossi. Took 2 of his classes back in May as part of my Mother's Day gift from hubby and kids. Also new to the room is the necklace I made during one of his classes, some cute decorative plates, and a shelf hubby made to store my stickles, stains and reinkers.

Another goody that I just got my hands on is from Inkadinkadoo! One of my birthday presents this year. I cannot wait to play with it and start creating my own patterned papers. I did play with it a bit the other night.
Still working my daughters baby album....slowly making progress. Also working on projects for the kitchen and living room. After the holidays will redo the kids' rooms. Lots of projects going on. Can't wait to post photos and updates of all. I think by the time I get my project over the mantle complete it will be time to take it all down and decorate for Christmas! lol! Better get working!

Wow! I have been following many of the scrap companies for a while now. I am excited for all the new releases coming out soon! One favorite has got to be Tim Holtz and his distress markers. Can't wait for these new releases!

Purchased a new chair for My Oasis, so I should start up with nightly scrappin' soon. My daughter will be happy, she has been asking when I will be finished her baby album. So, hopefully with more scrappin' I will be on here more. Really cannot wait to try and comment on all of the goodies I received for Christmas.
