My Other Creations: Distressed Tin using Tim Holtz Junk Drawer Baseboards

"Grunge it up" is this week's theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  I couldn't help but reach for gungy Tim Holtz products to make this wonky little tin.

I started with a basic metal tin that I sanded and painted using Distress Paint and Dina Wakley paint.

Next I stenciled some dots onto my tin using a Dina Wakley stencil and white paint.

While that was drying, I sanded the edges of some Tim Holtz Junk Drawer Baseboard pieces and painted them with acrylic paint.

I punched a hole in some of these pieces using my Crop-a-dile, then wound wire through them and around them to connect them all in a 3D stacked structure.  I adhered the base piece to the lid of the box.  Here's a side view.  When you look at the lid straight-on, these shapes appear to be floating on top of each other.

I stamped out one of my favorite Tim Holtz sentiments ("the greater the artist, the greater the doubt"), cut it into strips, and glued it to my tin.  And with that, this little project was done!

Here are the supplies I used, which you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
