Lisa's Idea-ology Americana

Hello Lisa Hoel here! Our current theme is "Americana". I thought this was a great opportunity to raid my stash and combine old and new Tim Holtz products into a patriotic red white and blue make.

The new Etcetera Facades are perfect to use with Vignette Boxes! There are a variety of sizes and styles in the pack.

I love making little scenes in the Vignette Boxes!

I decorated the back too!

Let's take a look at some of the how-to!

Step 1) I have a long retired 12 x 12 Paper Stash pad (Seasonal) that was perfect for lining the Vignette Box!

Step 2) Also in my collection is a Paper Stash pad called Motif that consists of white and kraft papers with resist patterns printed on them. I chose the 'star' pages and colored them with Distress Ink.

Step 3) I love all the Impresslits Embossing Folders that Tim has designed. I used the Star Trim and Medallion folders for this project. (both retired) Metallic Cardstock works really well!

I used a brown Distress Crayon to add a little grunge.

Step 4) The base is a finial and the round cut out from the Etcetera Facades pack.

Step 5) Using Distress Watercolor Pencils is now my favorite way to color Idea-ology Paper Dolls. 

Step 6) I took the cut out from the facade I used to create a panel to glue into the back of the box.

Step 7) Another fun new Idea-ology product is the set of Figure Stands. Of course the star was perfect for this project! I used Gilded Foundry Wax to color the star gold and Distress Paint on the stand part.

Thanks for stopping by. Keep an eye on the Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog for loads of inspiration each week!
