Hello and Welcome!
I’m so happy you’re here… my name is Stacy and I was thrilled to have been asked to create for the Tim Holtz Creativation booths, such a HUGE honor…and I am so happy to be included in the Blog Hop today. Thank you so much, Richele, for hosting!
So here’s the scoop…visit EACH of the participating blogs and post a comment on EACH of their Creativation 2019 blog hop posts, all comments need to be posted before February 9th at midnight PST. Then on February 10th, Richele will post 3 winners!! It’s that easy!
Here’s the lineup and links…
Stacy Hutchinson…that’s me 🙂
I have a trinket tin vignette for you today that was on display in the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Booth at Creativation. Some of the new items featured in the tin are the new Photobooth pack, the Adornments Deco Frames and the Adornments Floral and one of my absolute new favorite items…the Thimbles!!! I could hardly contain myself when they got added into the regular idea-ology line after the holidays!
The Trinket Tins are another favorite that were added to the line last year. They work wonderful for storage, and as I did for this project, are perfect to make into a vignette… lots of possibilities. They already come distressed, but I took the extra step and dented it and added bits of crackle, which is something I’m slightly addicted to doing as of late 😉
I hope you enjoy!
So let’s get started!
I started out by removing the lid of the Trinket Tin and, with a hammer, began denting it.
NOTE: You’ll notice that I have my tin sitting on top of my GLASS Media Mat… this was for the photo purposes only, I dented the tin over on my wood table, please be sure to do this on a solid wood surface, not your glass Media Mat. 🙂
I painted the tin with a light coat of Dina Wakley Gesso both inside and out.
Next up, I added a combo of two different collage papers. The new Document Collage Paper along with one from last year entitled Floral. Mixing and matching the collage papers worked perfectly!! The papers were adhered with Distress Collage Matte Medium and a Distress Brush. I applied the collage medium to an area that I wanted the paper to go, then applied the paper and brushed the paper with collage medium again. I did this until the tin was covered both inside and outside.
The collage paper is awesome to use. You can pick an area on the paper that you want to use, then with a Detail Water Brush and water, outline the area and pull it apart, as shown in the photo below.
After the collage paper and medium were dry, I added some Ground Expresso Distress Crayon in some areas.
Then I applied some Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint with my finger in a couple areas on the outside of the tin. Waited for it to dry, then with Mushroom Alcohol Ink, added ink to emphasize the crackle effect.
See, isn’t that wonderful?…YUM!! CRACKLE!!
Mushroom Alcohol Ink bleeds into the tiny cracks and really makes them pop! Although, in the photos, they’re difficult to see. I promise, it’s a yummy effect in real life 😉
Up next were the embellishments…
From my stash of vintage finds, I found some straight pins, bent the tops and adhered 2 of the Adornments Flowers to the top with Distress Collage Matte Medium and set them aside to dry.
I applied Picket Fence Distress Paint to all of my idea-ology adornments and let it dry. Then I applied Mushroom Alcohol Ink and Gold Mixative. Then a tiny bit of Walnut Stain Distress Paint applied with my finger and Ground Expresso Distress Crayon. I did this to the thimble, flowers, clip, Deco Frame, knob, Pen nib and Assemblage Heart Charm.
ahhh, a close up…vintage goodness! Excuse my hand…it’s dry, painted and inked 😉
the Photobooth photo…
I distressed the photo with a Sanding Grip and Paper Distresser
Then, blended it with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and a tiny bit of Mushroom Alcohol Ink.
Using the new Sizzix Bigz Trinket Tin Frames (this will be available in April), I cut out a frame, out of Distress Watercolor Paper and embossed it with the Stampers Anonymous Batik (CMS327) background stamp and Gold Embossing Powder. The Frame was then blended with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. Then I adhered it to a piece of chipboard that had been cut with the frame as well.
I gathered a couple small letters/envelopes from an Idea-ology Ephemera Snippits pack. Blended them with some distress ink and tied them together with string. I topped off the love letters with a Assemblage Heart Charm and an Idea-ology Pen Nib.
I dyed some Idea-ology Baubles with Mushroom Alcohol Ink to serve as filler in the bottom of the tin. I tossed the baubles inside a plastic dressing cup, dripped in some of the mushroom ink, snapped on the lid and shook the baubles around to coat them. Then I opened the lid and let them air dry before gluing them with-in the tin.
the tin base…
I painted a light coat of Dina Wakley Gesso onto a Vignette Finial. Applied a small amount of Crackle Texture Paste with my finger. Allowed it to dry and crackle then applied a small amount of Mushroom Alcohol Ink, Gold Mixative and Ground Expresso Distress Crayon into the cracked areas. This was also done to the Trinket Tin Lid. The lid was the perfect base for the finial and gave the piece more stability.
With a hammer and awl, I punched a hole into the top (for the knob) and back of the tin (for the clip). I adhered the frame to the top of the tin with collage medium and then added the knob.
The clip was added to the inside of the tin with a Fluted Fastener.
I added a small piece of vintage lace and cotton with-in the thimble to create a pin cushion. Then added some vintage straight pins along with the stick pins I created with the flowers. I added Picket Fence Distress Crayon to the Story Stick then tied it onto the finial with some string.
I added all my elements into the tin and adhered them with collage medium.
I found the phrase “with all my heart” in the Idea-ology Clipping Stickers pack and adhered it to the photo.
With that, my vignette was complete.

Oh, Stacy!!! I hope you knew, way before the Blog Hop came about, what a fan I am of your work! My goodness, my goodness…when I saw this I had to go straight to my craft room and start playing with the collage paper, right away! I’m still not certain where I’m going with it, just yet, but what FUN! Thank you for your super direction…I just adore this!
An amazing project.

Love all your “vintagey” goodness and how you distressed all the embellishments. The idea of using straight pins to attach the flowers is a great idea!

The viignette box looks so great, but it has many steps and products. Really beautiful
