The Weekend is Here!

This post is for a good friend of mine, Lisa.  She loves Graphic 45, 7gypsies and Tim Holtz products, so I thought that for her birthday I would post a picture of what we would be doing to celebrate her day. 

Since Lisa loves Steampunk I thought that perhaps we could do "Thoughts".   It is an IKEA frame, altered just a little bit, and filled with lots of gadgets and gears and of course Tim Holtz hardware.  I had a lot of fun creating this shadowbox.  The idea for this shadowbox came from a project that I did on one of the Tim Holtz cruises that I went on.  He is so talented; probably my favorite!!

If we have time,  maybe we can do a Tim Holtz Configurations Box.  I created this configuration using Graphic 45 Le Cirque papers.  I still have to find a lot of stuff to put in it;  circus trinkets are hard to come by.  I  see flea markets and antique shops in my future! The pictures did not come out very clear but the center box is a stamp from Stampers Anonymous "damn everything but the circus".
