Artist Trading Block - Scraps of Darkness - May Kit- Attic Finds



Good Morning Blog Friends-

The Attic Finds Kit from Scraps of Darkness is probably one of my all time faves!
I just love the ephemera of 7 Gypsies and Tim Holtz. This really is my style and what I enjoy doing the most. Collage style work, altering and funky artsy details.
If you missed the kit you can find out kits here.

So much inspiration in one box!



I created this artist trading block using the 7 Gypsies Architextures in my background. You can see the pattern paper add on in the kit here.

I added layer upon layer cutting out bits and pieces from these papers and adding in the ephemera found in the Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Emporium Pack found here.

The Creativity Add On included the Prima Finnabair Rust Effects Paste. I used this on my box edges, all of my metal embellishments including the chains. I added spools for feet and used this on them as well.

Along with the rust paste I used some blue toned paint to achieve a patina effect on my metal.

Also, I used a stencil and used the paste with that adding some texture to the pattern papers on the box.

One of my little art doll girls holding some letters from Papermania-Mr. Smiths Workshop Alphabet Stickers found in the Elements Add On. She is also popping out a suitcase. This is also in the Elements Add On - 7 Gypsies Architextures treasured adhesive stacked suitcases.

On the top of the box I used a Frank Garcia Memory Hardware latch coated in rust effects paste.

I attached a few chains with dangles.
