Linda has done something new this time; there is a CC3 Crew. This Crew is amazing, you have got to check out their work and their blogs... OMG some great inspiration!
I'm excited about the challenges 1) Because I'm a Tim-A-Holic 2) They give me the opportunity to use my Tim stash and learn new techniques and 3) It's CRAZY fun you choose your own project !! So come join us !! :)
Challenge #1 Is Paint Marbling p. 43 ( that's all I'm gonna tell you )... No it's not I lied...Gotta tell you GET THE BOOK !!!
Okay , I chose to do a tag using one of my favorite Tim Stamps from Stampers Anonymous . I used wild honey, peeled paint, spun sugar and evergreen bough distress paints. I love these colors and wanted to see how they looked together... so fun. I used my hearts stencil on the background, and used that fabulous jute string: I further embellished with tissue tape and a grunge heart attached with my tiny attacher. So much fun !! Did I tell you I love to use my Tim stash ??
I also used my crinkle ribbon that I colorized with distress ink and then stamped with one of my 7 Gypsies music stamps.
So umm ... if you are stuck and don't know how to get started don't forget to check out the CC3 Crew
