For the entry I distressed and inked with brushed pewter distress paint these idea-ology tiles and banner. I offset one of the "e's" so it appears as if the tree lot is falling apart.
I sprayed a mini tree with pine needles distress spray stain, then inked these metal beads with poppyseed alcohol inks. I popped it up on the smallest box from the EH Blocks/Cubes die.
I love Paula Cheney's recent Whimsical Woodlands post. I had a tree that was flat on 2 sides and not wanting to fluff up. So I adopted her cute tree and trimmed. I left some of the brush bottle and did not expose the metal. I added a "sold" sign.
I cut a thinlits label and stamped "For Sale". I wish I had a mini number set so I could have stamped "4" instead.
I inked all the trees with Distress Stains Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, Pine Needle, Forest Moss, Evergreen Bough and Iced Spruce.
On a couple of the trees I used spray adhesive and sprinkled some of these iridescent flakes.
I cut and added this wee sign to the back of the tree lot. Creating layers the whole way through.
All tacky tree lots need lights. I strung these battery operated lights to bamboo skewers.
I love the letterpress letters. A little distress paint and they pop!
I strung the lights all messy.
I cut the On The Fence with chipboard. I added a layer of Crackle Texture to the fence along with some iced spruce, frayed burlap and picket fence distress paint. I trimmed with silver tinsel twine all the way around.
Lights are on. This one has 3 settings so I've set it to "blink" to add to the tacky tree lot!
I added a Vintage Trailer with Tutorial! Click HERE to see more detailed photo's. I couldn't wait until next year.
Thank you everyone who's been stopping by and sharing your thoughts on my crafty things. I'm slowly winding down my "Christmas" projects. But there are a few more things to see!
