Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #30 (plus)

Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #30


Ok, here we are again - back with another wonderful technique challenge from Studio L3. Now, open your Compendium of Curiosities to page 48 - Altered Metal with Paint. You can purchase your very own copy of this wonderous Tim Holtz book here.

Now, I have already instructed the hubby to NOT look at this blog today, or face the dire consequences - he promised. I have it in writing! lol (but to be on the safe side, I will post the picture below.)




As you can see I used Tims word sticks and philosophy tags as well as Fired Brick DI, some of his stamps and a trinket pin.


Believe it or not that glitter you see came out of a years old nail painting kit....very very fine glitter, works great!! Some papers and yarn from my stash and there you have it.



I am thinking about entering this into a few other challenges, but I have to go find them first. lol

Thank you to all the wonderful people who make this happen, it's so much fun and I am learning loads too!
