Outside of the Box!
I just love these Configuration Boxes from Tim Holtz. This 21 box gem was so much fun to create but more than that it was fun to imagine. This is a great project to do alone or share with friends, as I did with my friend Sandra. It would also be great to do this project with Kids and others by giving each person a box and when they are all done put your work of Art together.
The box on the left was created by Sandra. using Salvage Stickers which was used in the whole project (Crowded Attic and Lost & Found). Oooh if you see those, pick one up. You will always find a use for the fabulous stickers in these books.
In the box on the right I layered white and black glitter and stuff cotton in to keep it from mixing and moving. I broke the top off of a cheap paint brush and that button is from Tim's Accoutrements. The Paint Box is my inspiration.
Embellishments include Sprocket Gears, Word Keys and that hand is a Jolee sticker. The Box with the Elephant is layered with Diamond Glaze.
Letters from the Lost and Found Sticker Book. Matted and set on thick cork to give it dimension.
Butterfly from Crowded Attic Stickers.
The top box in this pic was created by Sandra and the bottom is a pic I took on a trip to Bodega Bay last year. :-)
Well thanks for letting me share. Off to see the Wizard of Crafts and deliver this treasure to it's rightful owner. But I'm Hooked!!!
Have a colorful creative day! And remember, take time to 'Live Outside the Box!'
