Friday Focus - Idea-ology

It's Zoe Hillman's turn to share a brand new Friday Focus with you today. This is our opportunity to share with you ideas, tips and techniques for using a specific product or range currently available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And even better news, those products then have an extra 15% discount added through the coming two weeks! In the spotlight this time is the Tim Holtz Idea-ology range.

Zoe loves using items from the Idea-ology range in her projects as focal points, embellishments and even to create backgrounds. Here are a selection of some of her projects;

The plane from the Adornments Souvenir set just needed a touch of paint to enhance it before taking centre stage on her layered postcard.

This little vignette house was transformed into a floral masterpiece with some Bouquet Findings, coloured with Distress Sprays.

Tim Holtz' new Idea-ology Paper Dolls have been a huge hit since their launch in January and you can see why - they reside beautifully in this house perched on Letterpress Blocks. A Decorative Dome sits perfectly on a Finial (from the mixed set).

The addition of Mushroom alcohol ink to this Adornments Index Clip gave it an aged look to fit with the layers of Distress Inked card below. And the little window in the clip allowed Zoe to add some Rub On numbers as a clever detail.

Sometimes you simply need to use a portion of an embellishment to finish a project; removing the prongs from the fork in the Adornments Silverware set made it just the right height for the bottom of this card.

Lining up a number of Mini Gears can make more of a statement on a project, particularly when using all of the colours which come in the set. And for even more impact use a Game Spinner on top of one of them, attaching it with a Hex Fastener.

The Idea-ology range also includes items which can be used to create backgrounds; collage together an assortment of elements from the Ephemera packs for a beautiful vintage quilt. Adding Collage Mediums and Distress Crayons over the top blend them together seamlessly. Then add a little globe from back where we started with the Adornments Souvenir set, painted to highlight the detailed features.

By now you should see why Zoe is such a huge fan of the Idea-ology range for creating and completing her gorgeous projects. Remember, for the next two weeks there is an additional 15% discount on them so now is definitely a great time to stock up on your supplies.
