Nicola’s favourite mode of transport is hot air balloon so She has based her mixed media canvas on happy times floating in the sky. She has used Grand Voyage Balloon and Quilted Balloon Stripes by Memory Box along with Prima Metallique paints Deep Waters and Brass Hardware together with lots of Tim Holtz Idea-ology.
Barbara created a mixed media panel with Vintage Globe by Tim Holtz, Distress paper Mosaic kit and Mini Airplane Movers & shapers. She painted her work with Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Seth Apter Eclectica 3 limited edition set 1 and Tim Holtz Distress crayons.
Cathie created a mixed media panel with a romantic Paris theme using the Tim Holtz Eiffel Tower & Fleur De Lis and Mini Airplane & Clouds die sets. The sentiment was created with the Tim Holtz Tall Text set and Simon Says Stamp You Matter background stamp.
Emma was transported to a bygone era to create this vintage style card and used Tim Holtz’s Vintage Auto stamp set as the main focal point and then surrounded the image with die cut rusty gears created using the Industrial and Gearheads dies from Sizzix.
Macarena is opting for an old times way of transport and is flying high with a hot air baloon taken from Tim Holtz Remnants stamp set. The backgroung is a precious Tim Holtz Rings stamp embossed on black with Simon Says Stamp Ultrafine Detail Black Powder. For those vibrant red letters she used Alphanumeric Marquee Sizzix die.
Maura thought about a trip on her bucket list – to travel Route 66 – in a “Picked Raspberry” Pink Cadillac, no less. Tim Holtz’s Road Trip stamp set, retro colors from Tim’s Distress Crayons Set 1, and some Distress Grit Paste set the stage for this road trip!
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media card using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Pen and Pencil Stampers and added the sentiment with Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Mini Motivation.
