As I fell in love with the awesome Trellis die from Tim Holtz as soon as I saw it, I had to have it and still love the endless possibilities it offers! As you may remember I already had a heavy play with it over here.
My second entry to the April tag of Tim Holtz' "12 tags of 2014" is an altered latern I used the Trellis die on.
And I also took an image with the curtains closed so you can see how it looks when it is lit by the candle inside:
I had this old lantern with a simple glass which I covered with some japanese rice paper that I first tinted with Distress stain "tattered rose". Then I die cut the trellis twice from some Tim Holtz paper stash, and also two tattered pinecones (to create the fabulous roses) and one twig.
As I wanted to have roses in different sizes I tore the second pinecone shape into two parts and created two smaller roses from that one die cut. The other pinecone shape was used for a large rose.
To cover the metal stand of my lantern I used the rulers from the strip designs from one of the Tim Holtz papers and fixed it to the metal with hot glue. Then I glued the three roses and the twig on the spot where the overlap from my paperstrip was, to hide it.
The top of my lantern was given a border with the tiles from the trellis die cut and the backs that were visible were coloured with the Distress marker "broken china". I also glued some tiles into the trellis frame using hot glue, which makes them pop a little so the light can shine through the gaps!!!
For a finish I added some rough cord with which I fixed the metal idea-ology tag too. Some dabs of patina gilding wax around the platform of my lantern and the metal tag. Done! Hope you like it!
Hugs and happy crafting,
