You can see the 3D effect of the frame a little better in this picture..... and yes, the whole piece lights up too, which you will see in a moment!
I used the waste from the front frame to create a hidden compartment for the battery pack. As you can see in this picture I sanded the embossing to lift it a little.
Because the tree is quite small and I wanted to decorate it, I added the lights to the inside of the frame so as not to clutter the tree too much. I used a few seed beads, some tinsel twine and one of Tim's Idea-ology stars to decorate the tree.
At Inspiration Journal the Challenge Theme this month is 'Sing, Sing It Loud' and we would love to see you join in - there is a fantastic prize on offer of $50 to spend at Inspiration Emporium for one lucky person.
I was inspired to make my Christmas home decor piece by one of my favourite carols but also by the current challenge at Compendium of Curiosities #17 which is Woodlands & Tinsel Twine. The technique, which I used on my tinsel, can be found on Page 60 of Tim's Compendium of Curiosities. This challenge is sponsored this time by Inspiration Emporium where there is another wonderful prize of $50 to spend. In addition, the Curiosity Crew will chose their favourite entry, who will win a fabulous prize donated by Tim and Mario.
Should you want to make a purchase from Inspiration Emporium, you can use my code Redanne to receive a 10% discount from your whole order.
I hope to be back soon with my Tim Tag for December, I hope to see you again then. Hugs, Anne xx
