Tim Holtz Holiday Inspiration Series - Merry & Bright Vignette Boxes

Hi folks...I'm sharing another project for the Tim Holtz Holiday Inspiration Series, a set of three Vignette Boxes decorated with lots of Holiday Idea-ology to create a Merry & Bright Decoration...

I used the middle sized and two smaller Vignette boxes and cut strips of paper to fit from the Mini Christmas 8 x 8 Stash Paper and Christmas Kraftstock Pad, fixed them in place with Distress Collage Medium and added Christmas Design Tape to finish off the edges...
I applied a layer of Ranger Texture Paste in to the bottom of each box before decorating, the texture paste will hold the Idea-ology items in place when it dries.
In the first box I added...
a triangle shape of paper decorated with Holiday Talk Stickers to create a Christmas tree
a Wood Slice decorated with Christmas Remnant Rubs and Frozen Findings Snowflakes and 
Frozen Findings Icicles coloured with Picket Fence Distress Paint 
a Woodlands Tree spritzed with Peeled Paint Distress Spray Stain and tipped with Ranger Opague Texture Paste 
Idea-ology Baubles coloured with Cranberry Alcohol Ink
a Snowflake Adornment coloured with Picket Fence Distress Paint and fixed in place with Vignette Hardware
in the middle box
Christmas Ephemera
a Transparent Tile fixed to Christmas Paper with Glossy Accents
a Woodlands tree decorated with Idea-ology Baubles
a decorative deer painted with Distress Collage Medium Matte and dipped in Distress Vintage Platinum Glitter
A wood slice, a Christmas Typed Token and Eclectic Elements thread bow
a Christmas Alpha Dice
and Frozen Findings Icicles and Snowflake
in the third box...
another wood slice decorated with Christmas Remnant Rubs, a Christmas typed token highlighted with Picket Fence Distress Crayon and an eclectic elements bow.
a Woodlands tree
a SalvagedSanta painted with Distress Candied Apple, Black Soot and Vintage Photo Paints and  Black Soot Distress Marker wiped back to create shading on his face and beard
a Snowflake Adornnment fixed in place with Vignette hardware
I fixed Frozen Findings Icicles to the front of the two smaller boxes and applied a thick coat of Texture Paste to the top of all three boxes, added a Woodlands Tree, Christmas Transparent Tile, Frozen Findings Snowflake, red Eclectic Elements thread bow and a Decorative Deer inside a Decorative Dome to the middle box...
and added Typography Letters coloured with Aged Mahogany and Peeled Paint Distress Paints, a Decorative Deer, and Idea-ology Baubles.
