Happy Friday ! Here I am almost 11th hour again ... I cannot believe how my week has gone ... especially not today. But important thing is I'm here now ! Let's do this ...
Here we are at Challenge # 29 ... 29 can you believe it ? Our gracious hostess Linda Ledbetter over at Studio L3 http://lindaledbetter.com/2015/05/compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-29.html and the wonderful Curiosity Crew has for 29 times "escorted" us on the magnificent Journey through Tim Holtz's book A Compendium of Curiosities Volume III. It's not to late for you to join our Journey; however you will need to consult the "tour guide" aka the guidelines on Linda's blog. The guidelines are simple , pretty easy to follow ( except for those of us who get a little excited and want to tell it all ). We have wonderful sponsors and our sponsor for this leg of our Journey is Inspiration Emporium http://www.inspirationemporium.com/ ; the family owned online store; owned and operated by the beautiful Joy Kennedy and her family. Now if you have never checked them out, hit the link I provided and check them out. If you join us, follow the guidelines you could be eligible for a $50 shopping spree in their store ... let me tell you $50 can buy a lot of Tim stash!
Want to join us but not sure where to start ? Check out the Curiosity Crew's projects; visit their blogs... be prepared to be wowed ... it's okay to ooooo and aaah ... they like those; so show them some love. If you do you can also have a chance to win some goodies sent by Tim Holtz and Mario Rossi. So get YOUR book ... let's get BUSY !! Oh... you STILL don't have one ... go get it ...http://timholtz.com/new-distress-hickory-smoke/ ... while you are there check out Tim's latest post ... the New Distress color was revealed today; oh and don't forget to ask for a signed copy of A Compendium of Curiosities Volume III .
Challenge #29 is Eroded Metallic found on page 44.
I've created a tag ... I'm in the embracing mode this week ... hehehe ! Should I tell you what happened??? Nah ... let's just say I managed to save the tag. I followed the instructions for the technique , I had to do it a couple of times before I was satisfied with the results. It is a pretty cool technique once you get the hang of it ( just so you know... the technique WAS NOT my reason for "embracing")... as the kids say it took me a minute :)
So um ... I covered up my fabulous eroded tag ( the best of the two) and I forgot to take a photo so here is what it may have looked like. :)
My weapons of choice for this challenge were my Time Travelers and Purveyor Stamp Sets. In keeping with the eroded theme I stamped my traveler with sepia archival ink. I used another one of Tim's techniques from a previous year of tags ... so fun !
Well that's it for now. Oh just want to thank the Curiosity Crew once again for choosing me for the winner of Challenge # 28 , I'm excited , jazzed and honored ! And thank you to all of you (in case I missed anybody) of my CC3 community who left me comments.
