Grungy Monday 37: Tim Holtz Wearable Art

This week's challenge over at Grungy Monday is to create your own wearable art, featuring Tim Holtz products and/or techniques!

Linda created a lovely pocket watch, which got me excited, as I had just bought one of Tim's pocket watches on Monday (Michael's was having a President's Day sale, couldn't resist) for a project I'm trying to finish. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to decorate the pocket watch, so I visited Tim's tutorial on pocket watches for some inspiration.

I used Graphic 45 "Olde Curiosity Shoppe" paper on the inside (it is part of my "Strange & Lovely Findings At The Olde Curiosity Shoppe" project), along with some beads, and fun Idea-ology findings. This was so quick and easy to make - I can see how Tim has so many of them on hand! Well, that is all for the moment - thanks for looking, have a great day!
