Playing with the Picture Wheel Die


I'm having fun playing with the new Sizzix Tim Holtz Picture Wheel die. So far I haven't used it with pictures yet… need to get on that!  It's very versatile and I like using it as an embellishment on its own, as I did on this project last month.

Details on the art journal pages are posted on the Eclectic Paperie blog. Thanks for visiting!

    What a great idea adding letters! Hadn’t thought of using it that way. Love your creation. Hugs, Jenny x

    Love how you attached the two wheels together. Makes me think of a wagon. Can’t wait to see what happens when you use this with pictures, but for now loving the letters in the spaces!

    Cool. Just love the use of the picture wheel to display those key works and a fabulous background.

    I am saving my Picture Wheel for Christmas! OK, this week it comes out for a play! Fabulous pages with such a great background and those flowers look amazing and so does the wheel of fortune! Hey if you do all that the wheel says, you have a fortune! Hugs, GF!

    This is soooooooooooo fun!! I love how you added the journaling!!!

    What a great layout. Love how you used the dies.

    Love this, Marjie! The colors are fab….like a misty morning in the mountains. The use of the picture wheel reminds me of an old timey typewriter ribbon. Fun! I think my favorite thing here, besides the colors, is the stenciled flowers. They are perfect…there, but not competing with the focal. I’d miss them if they were gone. Love the words you chose, too.

    A great sheet Marjie…I didn’t know that wheel…the words are like a mantra…great background for it!

    kind regards, Alie :-)

    Bravo, Marjie! You have used Tim’s die so very creatively here! I love creating in my art journal with black, but it’s not always as easy as you make it seem here. While often overpowering, here black remains the focus yet allows the viewer to move about the pages effortlessly to read all the stamps–which I loved doing! Quite an enchanting journal spread!

    I wondered how to use that die! Fantastic pages.

  16. Silvia on April 16, 2013 at 2:56 pm

    That’s a great idea, fabulous pages.

  17. Lynne on April 16, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    The wheel has a wonderful nostalgic feel to it but with the use of stencils and colour you brought it bang up to date with a very contemporary spread.
    The flower stencil is gorgeous!

    Wonderful, using it with pictures just sparked an idea for me and I bought it because I remembered all those days of watching my disney cartoons on the wheels…..Using it with lettering is a great idea too! xox

    Lovely spread and that die looks great too, haven’t seen it before! Hugs, Valerie

    This is a unique page, considering that you used a wheels die on, embedded on journal pages :). It’s cool that you embossed them first, and I could see the texture on the wheels, so pretty. I feel like I’m walking in a lush garden from a time, past.
