Hi everyone! Can you believe I'm linking my project up early lol. I'm having my gallbladder taken out on Wednesday and did not want to let this challenge pass me up so I kicked it into high gear. I love Tim's process for altering his woodland trees and the tinsel as well. You can check it out on pg. 60 of his CC3 book and if you are looking for a last minute gift click here to get an autographed copy from Tim.
I rummaged around in my alterables stash and came up with some items to use for my project.
The box is an old Christmas card box and it made a great base, the Brie cheese container serves as a platform for my two trees and JOY letterpress letters and the picture frame was a thrift store find some time ago. Each was given a coat of Gesso then I added white felt to the card box base and sprinkled distress glitter over it. A Graphic 45's 12 Days of Christmas border decorates the edges.
The Brie cheese box was covered with Tim's tissue wrap, given a dusting of spun sugar distress glitter and the edge was wrapped in ribbon. The picture frame was painted with a silver metallic Adirondack Paint Dabber.
The silver tinsel was altered using Tim's technique and I added vintage Victorian tissue wrap to each of the frames. I altered plastic beads to add to my woodlands trees and a mirrored star adorns the top of each one.
I love Tim's letterpress letters and was so happy to receive a pack in the prize package I won for my Faded Layers Tag. They're great like they are or you can alter them to fit in with your color scheme with a dab of paint. This was a super fun project to make!

That's all for me today, my family and I would appreciate your prayers for a speedy recovery from my surgery. Thanks so much!
