Art from the Heart Blog Hop!

Welcome to a very exciting blog hop 
in Celebration of 10 years of 
ART FROM THE HEART!
Lots of exciting things happening at 
ART FROM THE HEART 
next weekend where the big birthday bash is happening. 
Want to know more then click here

So in Celebration we are having 5 birthday blog hops.
You should have reached my blog from Karen "Kaz" Hall,
what an amazing project, and you are following the Tim Holtz team hop.

Here is my project!
This is my configuration box to celebrate the 10th birthday for 
ART FROM THE HEART!
I first covered the box with Crowded Attic paper stash and Symphony tissue tape, then colored the Tissue Tape with Distress Stain. 
You will notice that I put one of the boxes in upside down so I had a surface to glue the word "ART" onto. The word "ART" was made with Grunge Blocks, the base is painted with Pitch Black Dabber Paint and the letters are painted with Distress Stain, glue them all together and sand with Tim's Sanding Grip then use Vintage Photo Distress Ink on a Ink Blending Tool to distress the edges. The candle is held on with a Hinge Clip that is bradded to the side of the box. The "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" on top are letters from Salvage Stickers that have been placed onto a piece of Grunge Board and then cut out as you see them. 
Now just have fun decorating your birthday box!

TIM HOLTZ PRODUCTS USED:
FRACTURED DOLL, GAME PIECES, TIMEPIECES, BAUBLES, GAME SPINNERS, SPROCKET GEARS, CLASSIC ADORNMENTS, FANCIFUL ACCOUTREMENTS, FOUNDATION FEET, CORNERS, HINGE CLIPS, LONG FASTENERS, CROWDED ATTIC PAPER STASH, LOST AND FOUND SALVAGE STICKER, ADAGE TICKETS, KRAFT GLASSINE, PLAIN GRUNGE BOARD, SYMPHONY TISSUE TAPE, 5 1/2" X 5 1/2" CONFIGURATION BOX, GRUNGE BLOCKS, BLACK DABBER PAINTS, DISTRESS STAINS (BARN DOOR, RUSTY HINGE, MUSTARD SEED, PEELED PAINT, BROKEN CHINA), VINTAGE PHOTO DISTRESS INK, AND A CANDLE FOR A VERY SPECIAL BIRTHDAY!

I'm sure you can find all the products you will need for this project at 
"ART FROM THE HEART"!

Before you move on - you will need to collect a letter from me 
which is the letter 
"c"
This is part of an anagram of a Tim Holtz product.
Can you figure out what it is?
Once you get back to Dys blog please email your answer to Ben.

So after leaving me a comment you need to move on to
Magda Polakov  
and see what fun project she planed for you.

Happy Birthday to ART FROM THE HEART!
Thanks for being a big part of ART.
 We all need ART for our HEART and SOUL'S!
