Happy Presidents Day!
Hope everyone had a great weekend and for some of you the weekend is still going! Yeah!

I want to share with you a few more projects that I did for Tim in the Idea-ology booth at CHA. 
The first project is a necklace "believe in your dreams"
The roses and leaves have been dipped in the Melting Pot full of UTEE. The UTEE coats the roses and creates a hard candy shell. Once the UTEE cools I rubbed Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls powder on with my finger. 
 "Believe in your dreams" is from Tim's new Chitchat word stickers. The stickers are different then any others on the market, they have a matte finish so they are inkable. The words come in white and kraft. 
 Using Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers in Pool and Aqua, rub the paint into the crevasses of the bird Adornment and Ornate Plate then buff off the excess. This creates a beautiful patina look. 

This pocket watch features the Chitchat stickers and the new Mini Gears.
 Using Filmstrip Ribbon, Lost and Found paper stash, Mini Gears, Game Spinners, and Chitchat words make a collage to fit your Pocket Watch. There is some photos in the paper stash that are a perfect fit for the Filmstrip Ribbon. A few of the Mini Gears are floating freely under the glass.
 Finally add a Word Charm and some Crinkle Ribbon to the top of the watch.

 I've been cleaning my studio and I hope to post some picture of some cool storage ideas latter this week.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.

Richele your work is just Amazing. We have nowhere in Scotland that has the selection of Tims products like the ones you have used. I'm fairly new to Tim holtz and my collection of things are growing fast. I am waiting for the new book to arrive and hope that helps me like the first one did. Wish I was nearer to come to your classes. Hugs Rita xxx
