Detroit Rock City Wood Vignette - Scraps of Darkness May 2017 Attic Finds Kit

Detroit Rock City Wood Vignette by Dana Tatar for Scraps of Darkness

Hi! I went off-the-page with this project for Scraps of Darkness, focusing my efforts on the May Attic Finds Creativity Add-On, which includes a set of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Wood Vignette Trays, embellishments from Blue Fern Studios and 7Gypsies, and a Finnabair Art Extravagence Rust Effect Paste Set from Prima. I flipped over the larger tray and built this piece on the back.

I took this photo of downtown Detroit from a hotel window in 2014, before I headed out to see one of my favorite rock bands play. I layered die-cuts from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Emporium Ephemera Pack (Main Kit) and pieces cut from patterned paper from the May Patterned Paper Add-On to build up layers under the photo. I also tucked flowers from the Main Kit and the May Floral Add-On between the layers of paper. I colored the brown flowers with the Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Crayon (Main Kit) and the Tim Holtz Tarnished Brass Distress Spray Stain from the May Color Add-On.

I had a lot of fun adding color and texture to this wood vignette tray! I started with Tim Holtz Tarnished Brass Distress Spray Stain and Prima Art Alchemy Metallique Ancient Coin Acrylic Paint from the May Color Add-On. Once those mediums were dry, I cut the 7Gypsies Architextures Tall Base Chicken Wire from the May Creativity Add-On into segments and stuck it to the tray. Finally, I sponged on Prima Finnabair Art Extravagence Rust Effect Paste Set, also from the Creativity Add-On, over the chicken wire for a gritty finish.

I used the Mr. Smith's Workshop Alphabet Stickers from the May Elements Add-On for the title. I hung the Scrapberry's metal microphone (Main Kit) from the hook at the bottom of the cage light embellishments from the 7Gypsies Architextures Junque Pack (May Elements Add-On).
