Lightbulb Moments

Welcome everyone,
today a new project which is from fun to joy has emerged . I was inspired from the faux cracked glass technique (Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities III)
There is a place where the ideas come (hopefully ;-)) an old little rustic laboratory with a black window glass, because it sometimes bangs and smells ;-)

  1. Oh my word!! Great project. Love all the items you put in your shadow box. The technique you used made it all so rustic and old world looking. Great job...

  2. What fabulous project ... so many fun details ... you did Tim Holtz proud !! The jars are fabulous !

  3. What a cool piece you have created! Love all the bits and pieces to see and study! Fabulous conversation piece! Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C!

  4. Das ist einfach nur genial und zauberhaft magisch, liebe Kerstin!

    Endlich hatte ich die Zeit mir das ausführlich und genüsslich anzusehen! Besonders toll finde ich, dass du es hinbekommen hast, dass all die kleinen hübschen Gegenstände wirklich aussehen, als hätte ihr Besitzer sie einfach grade mal dort liegenlassen, wo er zuletzt am Werkeln war. Da steckt eine Lebendigkeit drin, die dein Projekt richtig einzigartig und bezaubernd macht! Toll!

    Liebe begeisterte Grüße,

    1. Dankeschön :-) in einer echten Ideenwerkstatt ist es eher selten aufgeräumt, oder, bei mir zumindest nicht ;-)

  5. have gone so above and beyond on this's truly a fabulous piece and I LOVE it! I love your idea to faux crack the glass on the box and then the addition of all of the little faux cracked glass vials really finishes off this piece so perfectly! That weathered key is drop dead fabulous! SO textural and rusted and AMAZING! Great technique on all of this piece! Very steampunkish and vintage and fabulous! Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
