Tim Holtz New Faceted Heart and Ideaology


Hi guys!  Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my projects for the Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 1 release.  I had so much fun using the Faceted Hearts die for my rusty heart tag shared HERE that I decided to do another sample.  For that tag I tried to mimic pieced sheet metal, then it occurred to me I could use the Mechanics 3D texture fade to cut my heart for "easy sheet metal".  :)  I wasn't sure how the embossed panel would die cut, or if it would flatten the embossing, but it worked beautifully since it is a padded Bigz die.


I cut the 3D Mechanics from Metallic Kraft Core and colored with Distress Crayons.  I should have shared this tip in the first post, but for easy assembly make sure to crease all of your score lines with a bone folder before gluing the Faceted Heart together.


I layered lots of Tim Holtz ephemera/Ideaology together over a Paper Stash base.  I love sanding and altering this faux ephemera, distressing the edges and adding little tears and folds to give it a more authentic look.


I finished my paper doll collage with a snippet that reminds me of my own sweet boys.  Oh how I love this boy image!  I'm super excited about the new paper dolls and ephemera Tim is releasing.  Find out more HERE.

I love this one too - the shading on the metallic heart is perfect, and I love the sanded effect on all the chipboard elements. One of my favourite Paper Dolls too - another amazing make.

Autumn, your creations for Creativation were all gorgeous; my favorites were the ones created with the faceted heart. They were just so wonderful with all the layers and industrial look! Looking forward to your other creations with the new products. Thanks for all the inspiration and joy you create!

Autumn, this is a fabulous collage with the heart at the center of it. Perfect choice of the PD's to go with that embossed heart. Your stitching adds even more interest to your perfectly layered and aged ephemera. Way to go, this is a favorite! Hugs!
