Hello there, friends, it’s Nina-Marie Trapani here with you today sharing a project featuring Tim Holtz’s newest Halloween Distress release! I love fall and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use the new Mica Stains to create a warm vignette that also lights up!
The leaves that are scattered around are from Tim’s Foliage die set, which I colored with the new Distress Mica Stains. The background inside of my vignette is also sprayed with the new Micas. I also used new Tim Holtz Chapter 3 Foundation dies for this vignette, including Collector and Alphanumeric. The pieces I made from those sets are colored with Mica Stains and Foundry Wax for a super vintage effect.
To turn this into a light-up box, I mounted Tiny Lights inside with hardware. Then I covered the opening of the vignette with an overlay that I made by die cutting vellum with the Foliage dies, colored with Foundry Wax, and attached to the backside of a vignette frame. The cutout leaves provide a look into the colorful Mica Stain background that literally glows when the box is lit!
I also added small details to the box to tie everything together, including some Mini Flair embellishments, hardware to attach my “fall” sign, and even a bit of Foundry Wax layered across the outside of the vignette. This project has so much texture and color, thanks to those amazing, new Mica Stains! The colors are just simply divine!
I hope you enjoyed this project and are inspired to create something with this new release from Tim Holtz. Thanks for stopping by!
