Welcome to another installment of the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge, Vol. 3, hosted by Linda at Studio L3. This is the Thirtieth 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!
What a fun effect!! I picked up these little bottles at the Heirloom Rubber Stamp Show in Springfield, MA this past weekend. Good thing as I, errr, have temporarily misplaced the small vials I have from Tim Holtz and 7 Gypsies (although I think those are dark glass, so not sure how they would have worked).
So here is my bottle of wishes. Except for a drying issue of the 2nd step, due to some outrageous high humidity for upstate NY in June, everything seemed to work as shown. Of course once done, I had no idea what to do with them; so here is a small burlap panel, coated a tad with Shabby Shutters Distress Paint. I played around with some Frameworks dies, but ended up with this cool one from Tim’s Mixed media set. I wanted a bit of sparkle on the cut outs, so used Distress Glitter..but it didn’t work the way I planned; probably should have used Glossy Accents, as that’s what I used to attach the bottle and border. The stamp is a new one also from the show…I want to say Impression Obsession…could be Technique Junkie…
Now go visit the wonderful Curiosity Crew’s work to see how they showcased this cool Eroded Metallic effect! Have a great week everyone.
