I have had a few pieces of square acrylic hanging around in my craft room for years now and I decided that I should make some sort of plaque type thingy and I have to say, this is my favourite Tim Holtz inspired project YET! I made the Grungepaper Flowers using Tim's instructions on his 12 Tags of Christmas post from 2009. It is messy work and quite a bit harder than Tim makes it look (that could just be me) but aren't they worth it!

I covered the chipboard letters with Music Gazette pattern paper and sponged the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and an ink blending tool.
The flowers are coloured by spraying the Grungepaper with a Mini Mister with a full dropper of Distress Reinker and Perfect Pearls. The colour combos are Dusty Concord and Forever Violet Pearls, Spiced Marmalade and Heirloom Gold Pearls and Aged Mahogany and Heirloom Gold Pearls. Certainly a nice combo!

There is a little Adage Ticket at the top hanging on the ever adorable Memo Pin that was released at this year's CHA. There are some Green Tara Leaves, Grungeboard Elements Flourishes and also a bird charm from Tim's Adornment Charms Idea-ology set.
