I finally got my first project with T!ms configurations completed :D
I bought THIS ONE from Moira and believe it or not this is just 4 of the little boxes from it glued together with ULTIMATE GLUE and a piece of scrap chipboard stuck on the back to even out the surface :D.
The whole box is covered in vintage pattern pieces glued on with GLOSSY ACCENTS and the left over pieces were stuck in to the inside of the boxes :D
I used DISTRESS INKS in Victorian Velvet and Broken china sponged on all over.
The little spools are HERE and are also glued on with the the ultimate glue.
I would thread round them and coated them with Claudines MATTE MEDIUM to seal them in place.
The fabric pieces are Claudines STICKY BACKED CANVAS and I used the batik technique described HERE to create the panel stamped with Tims stamp.I stamped Paperbag studios STITCHED AND TIED randomly all over the box including the front edges.
I added all of my little bits and pieces that I had collected together and glued them down with the matte medium - its fabby for sticking down embellies because you can't see it if you are messy like me when it dries :DI actually bought a gorgeous pin cushion to go in but it was too big unfortunately, so I made my own by sewing round the edge of a circle of fabric gathering it up and stuffing with cotton wool. Then with my huge needle I segmented it with stitches around the outside to create that pumpkiness effect :D
It looked a bit clean for me LOL so I gave it a spritz all over with COSMIC SHIMMER MIST in Twilight black to grunge it up a little bit and add a gorgeous sparkle :D
I really can't wait to get stuck in to the main box but I'm still collecting bits to go in it :D
