Configurations + Giveaway

Happy Sunday.

I thought I would share a project I created for Tim Holtz to use in his Idealogy booth at CHA.

It is bright, huh? I think it stood out too much in the booth – ha. But I wanted to show how you can get a completely different look with the same product. I tend to do that with Tim's products – show how you can use it for a totally different look.

Configurations are Tim's fabulous dimensional shadow boxes. And boy are they fun. LOVE them.

Colin loved helping me with this. It was actually super simple to make.

I first painted all the pieces I wanted to use white. These pieces are actually from his soon-to-be-released Print Tray Configurations. I just used the pieces I wanted and saved the others for another project. (The price of these Configurations is really quite good.)

I then painted the soon-to-be-released Tim Holtz letters with bright colors. Couldn't just use black. 🙂

And Colin and I collected some of his favorite things to fill the boxes, adhering with hot glue…

Can it get any brighter?

Such fun. After I was done, I adhered all the boxes together with a glue gun.

And Colin loves it. It sits in his room on his dresser.
