E-Team in Action–Configurations..Cowboy Style
It's already November 30th, wow where does the time go? I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. I am happy to say that I am feeling almost normal, whatever that is.
Ok, are you guys ready to check out the E-Team? You're gonna LOVE it!
The call went out and the E-Team answered.
I will not lie – when Daisy assigned us our mission, I was quaking in my boots. As much as I love altered art, I am not one to save little objects or trinkets and have never created displays to feature stuff like that. So when I received my goody box from Daisy, I stared at these little boxes for quite a while. Let me just tell you that I loved (loved I tell you) playing with these boxes. (I’ll never, ever throw any little object away). But before I show you my project, the rest of the E-Team has created wonderful and stunning art work featuring these Tim Holtz Idea-ology Configurations.
To add to the blog hop fun, eclectic Paperie is going to choose two winners who will each receive a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Configurations of his/her choice plus lots of paper crafting goodies to enjoy with it.

Still with me? Good. Without further ado…..
Like I said earlier, I really was apprehensive about this project. Lots of ideas (and you’ll see some awe inspiring projects when you visit the rest of the gang), but I had no trinkets….. or as Suze Weinberg likes to say “Stuffs”. First of, the Deputy badge and the spur is from my hubby’s stash. Yes, he does cowboy shoots and collects anything cowboy. Considering I didn’t have much “stuff” to start with, sure is a lot there now.
Here is a neat little tip. I was under strict orders not to permanently adhere the US Marshall badge – so no glue, glaze or foam. Since the badge has a pin back, I had some of the packaging foam that comes in various craft packages like brads. I glued that to the wall and then was able to pin the badge into the foam to keep it secured.
The great thing about doing a distressed – cowboy theme, I didn’t have to worry about paint or glue mishaps, gotta love that Here’s another look.
