     This "wood door- knob hanger" is my entry to the newest challenge in Tim Holtz's book, A Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3.  If you don't have a copy, you can get an autographed one HERE.
     Our challenge is found on page 64.  We'll be using Frameworks Dies by Tim Holtz.  I chose the Trellis.  You can go to Linda Ledbetter's SITE to get all the instructions.
     Our sponsor for this challenge is INSPIRATION EMPORIUM.  They have a $50 gift certificate for some lucky winner.  Also, The Curiosity Crew's choice will receive an assortment of products from TIM HOLTZ AND MARIO ROSSI.

     I started with two coats of Gesso.

     I layed with Wild Honey, Peeled Paint and Mustard Seed Distress Paint and spritzed with water  until colors ran together.

     Then I used Honeycomb stencil with Molding Paste.  After it dried I used more paint and a touch of Black Cherry Glimmer Mist. Also used Remnant Rubs behind trellis.

     This is a close up of the Trellis die placed along the side with center cutouts of shiny gold, silver and black.  The leaves that are woven into the trellis are an Alterations die by Tim Holtz called Spring Greenery.
     Roses are made with a tiny five petal flower punch and coated with Glossy Accents to make them shine.


  1. This is very pretty, with a lovely background! I love how you used the Frameworks as a trellis with those beautiful roses! Ah, and there's that honeycomb stenciled with texture paste that gives so much depth to your hanger. Well done! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving your comment!

  2. This is just wonderful. I love how you used those frameworks dies. Amazing effect. Love that stencil too--just a terrific project (and entry) Reene.
