Challenge #2 is Distress Glitter taken from page 56 of Tim Holtz A Compendium of Curiosities Volume III ( you NEED to get your book and follow along ) ... I will NOT being giving you instructions. :)
I will tell you it's a fun technique and the results are so amazing. I'm STILL playing with the marble painting backgrounds ... so fun ! I used my tattered floral and tattered pine cone dies for my flowers and leaves. I chose to use antique linen and shabby shutters distress glitters. OMG yummy colors... just so perfect for my background. I also used a stamp from Words For Thought Stamp set. I used my Tim hammer to add texture to the brads for the flower centers ( so fun to use ... gives me a sense of power ... LOL ) ! While stamping my stamp misprinted the word "finding" so I re stamped it on another piece of paper , cut it out and popped it up with pop dots over the misprinted word ... pretty cool save !!
I just love the distress glitter... I'm wearing it today and so are the cats ... hahaha ... they are so nosey they need to get close. I could not decide in the beginning what I was going to do so I have a few other flowers ... I'm sharing hoping to encourage you to try the technique ... I'll be using them in the near future ... check out those colors ... so awesome!!
Well... that's it for now ! I do hope you decide to come join us. It is such a rewarding experience... next best thing to being in class with Tim Holtz himself ! Do go check out the projects of the CC3 Crew ... amazing work ! See you next time :) !
