Welcome to another installment of the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge, Vol. 3, hosted by Linda at Studio L3. This is the Eighteenth challenge in where we work through the techniques of Tim Holtz from, you guessed it…his 3rd Volume of the Compendium of Curiosities!! As in the past challenges, we can’t give details on the challenge, so don’t ask, but do go get your own copy of Tim’s fabulous book. Also, TheFunky Junkie Boutique has offered an extremely generous $25 Gift Certificate for all the even numbered weeks! So grab a copy, and join in to play!! All the deets are here, at Linda’s blog!
OK: It’s easy to blame lack of creativity to the stress/time issues of the holidays…definitely the time issue, as I’m always up against that...but I had various thoughts about how I would approach this challenge when it arrived. After doing the worn cover challenge (#13), which I’m using as my first art journal/work book, I had a brilliant idea to make a wine log. Bought a new cover on one occasion; with another pack of pocket pages on another: so what do I discover the other night? I have pages that fit in the horizontal style worn cover; but my wine book will be the vertical style!
So, in my Tues. night drop back and punt, here are the pages I had placed in my art journal (See! I have used it!) I’m using them to hold snippits of ideas, those that work; those that don’t…I had cut a bunch of the tickets out from scrap one day when I was “cleaning” up the Vagabond area, and they are in one of the pockets for my journaling/comments.
So, while not very creative, these pages are workin’!
So please visit the Curiosity Crew’s sites…where you can see all the possibilities of these pocket pages!
Have a Very Merry Christmas Everyone!
