Sabrina made an adorable shadowbox with a farm theme, giving it a rustic paint finish. She stamped the animals with Tim Holtz’s On The Farm set and the little children come from his Paper Dolls. The foliage was die cut with Tim’s Garden Greens die set and the title comes from a pack of Quote Chips.
Andrea made a journal page inspired by how hard farmers work to cultivate the land and cause good things to grow. She used Dina Wakley’s Positive Women stamp, Inky Antics’ Branching Out stamp and a Dylusions small Creative Journal.
Anna-Karin made an Easter themed tag, with three cute dimensional animals die cut with Tim Holtz Critters Sidekick dies. The animals are hiding in grass die cut with the Simon Says Stamp Grassy Edges dies, and the background was colored with Distress Oxides.
Barbara has realized a rustic Etcetera Mini tag using a lot of Distress products to create faux wood effect. For her central point she chose two chickens from On the farm and Tiny Things 2 by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous.
Cheiron created a whimsical tri-fold card using the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Funny Farm, Stitches and Media Marks 1 stamps along with Distress Inks and Distress Oxides. She matted each panel on kraft paper cut from a Sizzix Stitched Rectangles die and added a greeting from the Tim Holtz Crazy Talk stamp set.
Emma’s rustic panel was inspired by childhood and many trips to the country. She recreated the feel of a vintage farmhouse using Tim Holtz products including a Baseboard Paper Doll sitting on Milk Caps, surrounded by Tiny Corked ‘milk bottle’ Vials and set against an image of the countryside taken from the Remnants Layer Set.
Kath used a favourite childhood song as the theme to decorate a Mini Etcetera Tag using Tim Holtz Wallflower Paper Stash, Sizzix Potted BigZ die and Alphanumeric Thin Thinlits with Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Funny Farm and Nature Walk
Macarena took a cow from Prima Spring Farmhouse journaling cards and gave her a bit of splendor by adding Tim Holtz Sizzix Wildflower Stems 2 and lots of golden touched with Stampendous Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.
Maura reached for her Tim Holtz Funny Farm set by Stampers Anonymous to create her own Animal Farm, brightening it up with Reverse Confetti Cue the Confetti paper pad, Paper Artsy Eclectica3 Kim Dellow EKD02 stamps, and Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers.
Sandra made a farm life spread in her art journal using the 3D Lumber Embossing Folder for her barn door, and the Slate Stencil with Texture Paste for the bricks and Garden Greens colored with Distress Oxides in different shades of green.
