Last summer I created a window box titled "Follow Your Heart" for my niece. For my 2nd Tim Holtz CHA project, I decided to create a different version of the "Follow Your Heart" only this time using all Tim Holtz product. You can check out the original version here. It is amazing how different the second version looks!
Since the entire creation was to be housed in a window box, there is tons of layering. I challenged myself to see how many die-cuts I could incorporate into the overall design. By the time I had it all laid out, I had used 5 different dies! Nearing completion, I felt there was something missing. Asking for a different set of eyes to brainstorm finishing touches, my mom suggested creating clouds in the background. To her, the design had a steampunk feel...the star in the center reminded her of propellers on an airplane. What a great idea mom! Now, my challenge was to create clouds using Tim's product. Playing around with my tools & scraps, I decided to create the clouds using the Layered Angel Wings Die! I love finding different uses rather than the obvious sometimes, don't you? By doing so, it can definitely turn into something magical! :)
Just like the last TH project, I used tons of different product. With the exception of some vintage flocked wallpaper for the wings, the cast iron star and the window box, everything is Tim Holtz. In case you see anything you like, here is a complete listing of everything I used...Bigz Dies: Layered Angel Wings, Regal Crest; Movers & Shapers Dies: Mini Hearts Set, NEW Oval, & NEW Postage Stamp; Kraft Core'dinations Nostalgic Cardstock, NEW Paper Stash Collage 8X8, Paper Stash Kraft Resist 12X12, NEW Elements Tissue Tape (the pointed fingers around the inside of frame), NEW Elements Remnant Rub-Ons, NEW Label Letters, Chit Chat Stickers, Journaling Tickets, Lavish Trimmings, Game Pieces & Ranger's Rich Red Embossing Powder.
Since Valentine's is just around the corner, I think this piece is perfect for this time of year. Checking out some different challenges around the web, I found a Valentine's Day/Love & Ribbon Challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon's Blog. I decided to enter my "Let Your Heart Take Flight" into the challenge. Why not? :)
