Altered Clip It Up Products- Vintage & Grunge Minis (Part II)

Hello again! Natasha here and I am back to show you the details of my Grunge Clip It Up. Last week I showed you my Vintage Clip it Up. If you missed it, you can view the details here.
Like my Vintage Clip It Up, this Mini and Upper Tier were sprayed using a stone-texture paint. The brick wall panel and the tribal element are chipboard elements made by The Dusty Attic. The sprocket gears are from Tim Holtz’s Idea-ology collection and are one of MANY Tim Holtz products on this Clip It Up. The large flower shown here is handmade. (You can find a tutorial on my blog.)
I used hemp cord and added lacing around the base. I really love how it turned out! The hemp cord adds such a beautiful texture.

The letters that spell out ‘INSPIRE’ are made of grunge board. Each letter was dry embossed for added texture and then painted and inked to match.
Here you can get a glimpse of all of the Tim Holtz goodies I used- the ball chain, clear charm fragments, grunge board, Lost and Found paper collection and word key. I can’t get enough of Tim Holtz products!
To add interest, I wrapped hemp cord around each arm and each divider tab.
Can you guess which products I will be hanging on this Clip It Up? That’s right! Tim Holtz products!
It is so easy and fun to personalize Clip It Up products to match your decor or craft space. I think the most difficult part for me was having to temporarily place my supplies back in a box while I completed my alteration LOL. It is difficult to take a step backwards after experiencing the convenience and ease of a Clip It Up.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post. Hope you decide to personalize your own Clip It Up, and if you do, please send us a photo! We’d love to see it! Let your imagination go wild and have fun with it!
Have a beautiful day!
