TIOT Guestie!

So honored to have been asked to be a guest designer at Try It On Tuesday... they seemed to like THIS project from back in March, so I've been invited to join in their current For The Boys challenge!

Here is my project:


  • I made the box from an old library catalog card
  • The cardboard was taken from my recycling bin and I ripped it and gave it a light coat of Teresa Collins modeling paste and adhered it to the inside of the box
  • The main image was from a page of Tim Holtz designer paper, cut and coated with Distress Collage Medium in Crazing.  When dry and crackled, I gently scribbled various Distress Crayons over the cracks to emphasize them.
  • The rope-looking twine was from my jar of fiber scraps
  • The little words are from Tim Holtz Chit Chat stickers
  • The awesome striped ribbon in the background was also from my scrap fiber jar
  • I added two little Recollections brads to the ribbon 

Thank you for dropping by!  See you over at Try It On Tuesday!
