Here is a configurations box I have made using a lot of, but not exclusively, Tim Holtz materials. It's taken me ages to complete it and I have been going back to it over time and adding things as I went. It is now complete .......... at least I think it is but may continue to add things to it yet.
There are alsorts of things in it from birdgages to model cars to keys and cotton reels. Buttons, charms, metal embellishments, glass bottles are also in there. I have kept everything grungy too by using Distress inks.
Used TH papers to line the compartments and the outside of the box and mica sprays to add a pewter and metallic sheen to the outside. I didn't use the acetate lid liner as I wanted things to sort of 'Spill Out'.
Used loads of tissue tape to edge all internal and external edges.
Everything has been stuck in place with Claudine Helmuth Matt Medium which does make a fantastically strong glue also.
I'm a crafty fella living in Manchester U.K.
I love nothing better than to escape into my very untidy craftroom and mess around with stamps, inks , paint, fabric & anything else that's crafty for that matter!
