Wow, the final challenge from Tim's Compendium of Curiosities, organized by lovely Linda at Studio L3. Iwish to thank Linda for running this wonderful challenge. It started me blogging; opened my eyes to a whole new world of blog hops and challenges, and I've "met" many new friends along the way!
So, here we are at Challenge #35, Design Details. And because it is the last challenge, I didn't want to substitute, so I actually bought Tim's cool ruler. Now, the stitching put me off; I'll throw out a shirt that needs a button and replace it (really, ask my husband-who is always losing buttons!) than thread a needle! So I wasn't looking forward to this one, particularly as the last one! But, it wasn't all that bad, once done. Just don't look at the blood stains on the back! LOL!(what's really sad--my first "real" craft-leatherwork, and I had no trouble stitching wallets, purses, etc. ) I also wanted to work in as many different techniques as I could--which of course caused muse overload! I swear, the only piece I envisioned was the copper brick piece-which even then I put in the texture folder backwards! LOL! The rest literally fell in place piece by piece! I'm going to put this in a frame (total size 5" x 7") for my new wall.
Now the photo is really dark...not sure why as it was fine at home, but I have an "e" sticker for the work Journey, and there are pearl brads on the top right corner. The fragment is over the "admit one" ticket stamp from one of tim's mini sets, and I used a Glaze pen to highlight the words in the creativity quote. I also used the dabber resist under the bird, but that is all but invisible! Really too bad,as I was really surprised how cool this one was once I stepped back (no, really! I had absolutely no expectations for this one!)
I hope everyone else enjoyed this journey as much as I did, and I hope to see you all again on the next StudioL3 Challenge!
