Cityscape Suburbia Tim Holtz dies

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I do a full tutorial on my blog so here's one that'll make for all the ines I've missed. Inspired by the graffiti streets in Melbourne Australia I've used recycled Ice Resin wood spools to make a cityscape!
For this you'll need yummy Dylusions colors, Ranger watercolor paper and Tim Holtz dies
Ck out how the height of the buildings correspond to the spools!
Prepare your paper, ive used this Instagram photo as my inspiration

Here's how it looks on paper

Now I'm ready to die cut
So many yummy colors!
You'll use the distress collage glue to add the to your spools and to glue tiny frame windows and such
They fit perfectly on a Relics and Artifacts wood canvas, now it's time to prep it
Ive also added more buildings inside
For the trees I went with distress oxide
Then I gave them a coat of ice resin to seal them on top
Then they were ready for assembling
The tiny clothes 😍

I do hope I get to visit Melbourne some time in the meantime I had a lot of fun art traveling!

Inspired by Iceland Collaboration

Artist Tina Walker created a Facebook group of artist to challenge ourselves to be inspired by the magic of Iceland and its magnificent Northern Lights!
I jumped in because it's in my bucket list to see them!
I took a metalsmith class last semester and day one I drew what I wanted for my final project. Little did I knew the way the class would take me. But I achieved the focal piece just like I envisioned! This was challenging and fun!
Focal piece was created after sawing the brass and filled with Ice Resin and Ice Resin tints to represent the Aurora Borealis
I hammered the stars around my sky
And here's my initial sketch
