It is Simona’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your fabulous projects you have made for us over the past month. It has been a real pleasure having you along with us!
Simona for her last project, created a Shadow Box with an ‘Old Prairie’ sort of look, having fun with some of her favorite Tim Holtz’s goodies: Paper Dolls, Quote Chips, Distress Oxide Inks, Distress Crayons and much more
Anna-Karin made a project she had been thinking about for a long time, namely a miniature bookshelf, filled with handmade books, words and ephemera. The base is a Tim Holtz Vignette Tray and the books were made from grungepaper, sticky-back canvas and scraps of paper.
Cathie created a cute card where the sweet but confused dog is surprised that summer is over and school is just around the corner. She used the Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs and Schoolhouse Blueprints stamp sets for the main images and the Tim Holtz Plaid stamp along with Faded Jeans and Fired Brick Oxides for the background.
Emma’s panel was inspired by the papers from the Memoranda Paper Stash by Tim Holtz. She added layers of Collector Ephemera, a ruler piece and a Paper Doll sitting on a pile of stamped books to complete the project.
Kath created a Back To School Notebook for those all important notes using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mini Blueprints 8, Ideaology Paper Dolls, Alpha Transparent Tiles, Ruler Pieces and Type Lower Foam Stamps
Macarena says that it’s very important to try to learn something new everyday, to search, to discover, to stay curious and that is what her colorful Art Journal pages are all about. She gave it so many colors by using Distress Oxide Inks on the background and some flowers from Botanical Layers Paperie from Tim Holtz. She made her second layer of background using Sizzix Alphanumeric Marquee die. The final touch was made by using Ruler Pieces Findings and some cute girls from Paper Dolls.
Maura made some fun notebooks for her Science teacher friends, using Tim Holtz’s The Chemist stamps and Indigo Blu’s Calculus stamp, along with several Simon Says Stamp stencils – Ring Cluster, Swirls and Dots and Circular Lace.
Meihsia was inspired to create an art journal page with motivational quotes for her daughter, a high school freshman. She stamped the typewriter image using Tim Holtz Type Chart Rubber Stamp and added sentiments with Way with Words rubber stamp.
Sandra created a back to school card with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Alphabet stamp set and Simon Says Stamp Dancing Fruits stamp set along with some books that she made out of different kinds of washi tape.
