Challenge #6 chosen by the amazing and wonderful Anne is "All About Him" at A Vintage Journey and just in time for Father's Day or any celebration of "him." You will want to be sure to visit AVJ for all the wonderful projects my fabulous DT Sisters have for you! There is always a prize from our sponsors at Country View Crafts, so come on and join in with your Tim inspired projects!
I have had this wooden box sitting around for several years and have wanted to turn it into a "TV remote controller box" and with Anne's challenge theme, it was time! This will be a birthday gift for my hubby on June 3rd, so I am joining in the challenge at Inspiration Journal, "Celebrate." The box was lightly sanded and painted with a washy mix of Vintage Photo paint, a little bit of crackle and then rubbed with Black Soot Distress ink.
Using Tim's Clockwork, Dot Fade and Measured stencils, I applied Black Soot Distress ink and then sprayed with a matte sealer. This was then given a very light sanding.
Fired Brick paint was applied to the stamp numbers, sanded a little after drying, as well as the Alpha part to outline the frame.
The Crown was covered in gold paint and then I wiped it off only allowing it to settle in the recessed areas. Added various rub-ons on tickets I cut and inked and here and there for fun! After I added the rub-ons to the box, I also inked around the edges with Vintage Photo to blend into the box. Please excuse the bits of debris in the photos! I live in the desert and it is dry and dusty and goodie for me it was also windy! I kept wiping off dust and debris and it did not matter! SORRY.
For the center focal area, I used some Ephemera pieces and stamped over the clock with Vintage Photo using the new Cracks stamp - LOVE that and shaded the edges.
The gentleman and numbers are from the Merchantile and he was stamped in Black Archival on Vellum and I colored the back using tan Sharpie ink. Added some fun metal bits and filmstrip.
For a little more "Movie" feeling added some characters to the Lattice die and some Mirror pieces, which really collect desert dust!
Next was just to add some papers and Tissue Tape from various packs to decorate the sides and inside of the now Remote Control storage box!
Thank you for enduring my photo heavy post and hope you will join in all the fun at AVJ! Have a wonderful day!
