GD Simon says - Tim Holtz products

Welcome everyone!

I'm back again with a new theme - Animal Magic!

 Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Summer, Sun and Sunshine -  time for vacation and wanderlust!
In winter we long for a little sunshine and in summer we flee from the heat of the sun. But we still are always in a better mood when the sun is shining.
On the other hand the yearning for a cool, chilly place for some peace and relaxation is stronger than ever.

That inspired me to create a new piece to decorate my home with. 
It's an upccycling project and I used an MDF Surfboard shape.

By adding only a little paint and a few embellishments 
you can easily create your own background and get 
an eye-catcher made out of a simple board from the dollar store. 
And it's not only beautiful but also practical, 
because at the upper end there is a bottle opener.

Tips and Tricks


1. I used 2 pieces made with

Tim Holtz Sizzix BURST 3D Impresslits Cut and Emboss Folder

that were coloured with chalk acrylic paint and highlighted with gold metallic wax.

 I stuck them on top of each other with a sticky foam pad 

and decorated them with three small shells, a dog photo and ribbons 

2. yes, that's a cocktail umbrella to the right :-)

I altered its look with some spray colours 'Walnut Stain' and 'Stain Picket'

3. I made some pieces with Tim Holtz Sizzix Planks Bigz

and Tim Holtz Sizzix LUMBER 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder 

I think these are such a wonderful addition to such a lot of projects with a nature feel. 

I created a small fence,

  so the little boy can lean back and relax.
