Toxique Box: Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll

Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll

Happy Sunday everyone! We’re already getting cooler days and nights here, so fall is just around the corner. I was inspired to create a piece for Halloween from some of the amazing new Tim Holtz Halloween goodies this year.

This Tim Holtz Vignette box is simple to make when you break down the steps of creation. I’ve used Tim Holtz Halloween Paper Stash to cover both the inside and outside and Materialize Halloween tissue tape to cover the front of the wood.

From there, I glued the smallest box to sit inside the larger box to create a shelf for the Tim Holtz Idea-ology skulls and alcohol ink stained glass vials. The witches are from the Idea-ology Ancestor Paper Dolls, notice how well they’re cut out, really great quality!!

I’ve added in Black Alpha Dice to form “BOO” which I’ve glued to the shelf. Behind the bottles and the above the dice, I’ve glued Halloween Ephemera which breaks up the space and adds addition spook factor.

A simple Incantation Metal Word Band at the base of the small box let’s you know the contents…curiousitites!. By using soft matte gel to glue the pieces in place of my Toxique Box, I expect it to hold up for years to come!

I’ve filmed a video of how I created this box which you can view below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

  1. Shari, your vignette box is awesome. I only have a few decorations for Halloween but now that I have two grandchildren I am thinking I should have some more. This would be fun to make. I love the dice that spell BOO tucked in there. It does add a little “spook factor”. Well done!

  2. Love these boxes. I love everything about Halloween, my favourite time of year. Love the Halloween paper dolls! Very interesting to look at, always see something new.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Wow! So much detail packed into a small space! I really like the coloured bottles and the BOO spelled out with the blocks.

  4. Very nice Halloween project. I just got my Tim Holz Halloween prodcuts and can’t wait to start creating. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. This is so creative and fun. It would be a great addition to my Halloween decor. I think I have found my project for this weekend.
