Curiosity Box - At Last!

I'm sure you are all well aware that the great and glorious Lord Tim of Holtz was teaching at a wonderful Paper Artsy event in Newport Pagnell last month. I was one of the Golden Ticket holders and happily toddled off to be inspired by the Master himself. I spotted him on the Thursday evening when I arrived at the hotel and very nearly wet myself with excitement. My D.H. was with me at the time and broke into gaels of laughter at the sight! 
Anyway I have posted the lovely project which we made in the morning session already and I thought I would share the final pictures of my finished project with you. What a project, such fun to make and what a way to make four hours disappear almost instantly. 

Some close-ups of the details. The transparency has a little battery operated tea-light behind it. Clever idea eh? I will be using this idea again methinks. The little bottles are filled with beads, pen nibs and other bits and pieces. The little cage has a bird charm attached.

You can just see the faux printers blocks which spell the word Tim. The clock is pointing to 2.00pm (the time of the class) and there are two other blocks which make up the date 2011.

My little lady has a skirt made from a flower folded in half and tied around her waist and she has a lovely metal wing. All in all I had the most fantastic day and found the great man himself to be quite lovely.

  1. Altered art is an area I like to dabble in and always fascinated to see what others are creating. This is stunning. I want to sit and study it up close.
    (Although I am a DT member for The Stampsmith, you will find my artwork at my Blog Adorn.
    Would be lovely if you wanted to visit.
    Have a great evening.
