Christmas Wooden Block - Winter Deer

This is the second wooden block I've made using lots of Tim Holtz products and techniques. The Tim Holtz pine cone paper was the starting point for my project. I knew I had to use it because it's absolutely gorgeous! Neutral colors and pops of gold were also used to create this wintry Christmas scene. I leave this piece out during the winter months because it doesn't look too Christmasy (is that a word?). I love the tiny Tim Holtz deer and trees that are adorned with gold baubles. The tiny packages wrapped in Tim Holtz papers complete the scene on top of the block. Tim Holtz dies were used to create the winter scene on the front of the block.


Keep reading if you'd like to see more photos of this piece as well as additional details and a supply list!

Here is another front view of the block. I really love the pops of gold on this piece. The gold box feet are beautiful.


I created a winter scene on the front of the block as well as the top of the block. Tim Holtz dies, Christmas papers and card stock were used to create the scene. Snowflake Paste and Rock Candy Distress Glitter were used to create the snow. I splattered Tim Holtz picket fence Distress Paint on the deer, greenery and snowflakes after they were attached to the block.

A Tim Holtz peace on earth Christmas word band was altered using a black soot Distress Crayon and Gold Mixative. I also applied the Gold Mixative to Tim Holtz Pine Cone Adornments. The word band and pine cones were attached to the block using twine. I attached Tim Holtz Box Feet to the bottom of the block. Gold Mixative was used to give them a gold finish. 


Here is a view from above. Tarnished brass Mica Spray was used to alter the trees from their natural color. The larger tree was placed inside a Tim Holtz thimble that I altered using Gold Mixative. Gold Mixative was also used to stain some baubles. I attached them to the larger tree. The smaller tree is sitting on top of a wood slice. Tiny wooden blocks covered in Tim Holtz Christmas paper and wrapped in twine are stacked next to the larger tree. They look just like little gift packages!

I painted the deer using Tim Holtz vintage photo, ground espresso and picket fence Distress Paints. I applied some Rock Candy Distress Glitter to the deer to add some sparkle. A few baubles that I rolled in Collage Medium and Rock Candy Distress Glitter were also added to the piece. Finally, I applied some Snowflake Paste around the trees, packages and the deer. I sprinkled Rock Candy Distress Glitter on top of the Snowflake Paste to add some sparkle. It really looks like snow!
I love how this piece turned out. You just can't go wrong using Tim Holtz products!
