on another project, I grabbed a piece of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Film Strip to use on said project. Because the film strip is so curly once it comes out of the package, I usually hang it up with my ribbon to "stretch" it out so it's flat.
In the meantime, I've amassed all these adorable film strip containers. So decided to try a mini-diorama inside one of them.
First: Peel off the label to reveal a tiny window.
Inked the inside of the tin with Ranger's Stonewashed Alcohol Ink.
Then added a good coating of
Crackle Glossy Accents.
Added some shredded paper ($1 at the Dollar Store - duh!).
Stamped a teeny bird with Memento black ink
and colored with Copic Markers.
Grabbed a tiny wooden Monopoly house.
Inked that up with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Added all that to the inside of the tin
using Claudine Hellmuth's Matte Medium.
Added Film Strip ribbon around the bottom portion of the tin.
Closed the lid
and added a Stampers Anonymous butterly
to the lid.
The possibilities for this teeny tin are endless.
How cute would this be with one of those little school pictures
add other embellishments like fringe around the lid.
Have you done these before with these Idea-ology Film Strip tins?
If so, post a link to your Tim tins in the comment section below.
I'd love to see them!
