Tim Holtz Mixed Media Christmas w/ Foundry Wax, Grit Paste and Baseboards!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create a fun mixed media holiday project with loads of wonderful products from the Tim Holtz Collection!

To set the scene for our project we will be using a pretty Tim Holtz idea-ology Baseboard from the Christmas/Noel Collection. These baseboards have a thick, chipboard type quality to them. Let’s add some texture to this baseboard by adding some TH Distress Grit Paste in Snowfall. This will dry clear and give and icy/snowy texture. We can use this baseboard to create a window for our scene which will include a beautiful deer from the TH Sizzix Thinlits Darling Deer Die Set. We will color the deer using a sponge dauber and some TH Distress Inks.

We can now add some snow drifts and then we can ink up the background for the scene again using some TH Distress Oxide Inks!

Next we can go back to the Baseboard collection and grab a few stars and a sentiment strip. To embellish these stars we can add a TH idea-ology Mirrored Star to the center of each of these chipboard stars. This will add some sparkle!

Now let’s use a beautiful poinsettia die cut from the TH idea-ology Worn Wallpaper Scraps. This set contains several patterned papers, pretty die cuts, and some border strips!

We can add a cute little bow using the TH Sizzix Thinlits Fireside Die Set. Let’s layer this up to add extra dimension.

Once we have attached all of our elements to our project we will be using the TH Distress Foundry Wax in the Gilded (golden color). We can apply this using a sponge dauber and we want to be sure to heat set this foundry wax in order to attach it to our project and bring out the shine! I’ve added it to the stars and around the edges of the baseboard. It just makes everything pop!!!

Add a bit of crystal glaze to the berries for even more dimension and a few metallic pearls in a matte gold to the center of the poinsettia and bow!

The final finishing touch is to add a spattering of white gesso to the entire project for a gorgeous snowy look and to tie the entire project together!

I’m making my mixed media project as a gift, so I am going to include a little black wooden easel to hold the project. This makes a great gift for a co-worker, friend, teacher….I think just about everyone would love to have a fun handmade holiday gift!
