Hi Everybody ! Yay ... I'm early ... no last minute for me this time... very busy working on a wedding so I need to do my CC3 Challenge now ( don't want to be left out). Well here we are at CC3 Challenge # 31.
Linda Ledbetter over at Studio L3 http://lindaledbetter.com/2015/06/compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-31.html ; our amazing hostess has laid out guidelines for you to follow if you would like to participate. We are continuing to explore Tim Holtz's A Compendium of Curiosities Volume III. to participate you must have your own copy of the book because we cannot give instructions on the techniques ... you can't either ! Now you should check http://lindaledbetter.com/compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-faq so that you can familiarize yourself ( or refresh your memory) regarding the guidelines for the challenge ... I don't want you to be left out of the fun! And this will help you answer any questions you may have. We have two amazing sponsors and our sponsor this challenge is Inspiration Emporium http://www.inspirationemporium.com/. It's an awesome online store owned and operated by the delightful Joy Kennedy and her family.
To be eligible for prizes ( and they are cool prizes) you'll need to follow ALL the guidelines and visit the blogs of the amazing Curiosity Crew and show them some love. It's real easy ; you just click on their projects and it will take you to their blog. It's okay to OOOOOO and AAAH ( but they can't hear you) so you'll need to leave them a comment ... LOL !! Be prepared to spend some time at each one (grab a cup of coffee; put your feet up ) ; BE PREPARED to be WOWED !
Oh yeah ... if you still don't have the book ( Shame on you ) ; seriously if you don't have it go visit my friend Tim Holtz at http://timholtz.com/ he'd be happy to autograph a copy for you !
Challenge # 31 is Layering Stencil Paint Resist , found on page 47.
It's so difficult at times not to tell you what I did because I get so jazzed about the techniques. I don't know about you ( if you've traveled this journey with us); we've just done so many techniques that I didn't even imagine I would do ... so I tend to get excited about them. I will tell you that at first glance this looked intimidating. Once I got started I was presently surprised at how easy it is. I'm in love with this one !
Since it's close to the 4th of July I decided to go with patriotic colors. I used fired brick, faded jeans, and pumice stone distressing inks. For my embellishments I used photobooth, special delivery remnant rubs, seasonal chitchat, hashtag stamp set, index label, crinkle ribbon, custom fasteners, trinket pin, heart charm , Wendy Vecchi's red geranium embossing powder and four stencils : Hearts, stars, numbered and rays. From my Queendom stash I used lace, denim, embroidery floss and fibers.
I followed the instructions on page and created a tag ... OMG... this is so cool. Can you see the four stencils I used ? Look close ... how cool is that ?! I almost hated to cover it up !
Well hope you enjoyed my tag. I'm off to do my June Tag for 12 Tags of 2015 ! I've got to get my crafting out of the way as I will be working on Weddings decorations for the weekend and preparing for a Memorial Service... I've been asked to speak for Baby Levi's Memorial Service. Family has chosen to "Celebrate " Baby Levi at our Family 4th Celebration. And then I'll be off again to finalize preparations for July 17th Wedding . Fun, fun , fun !! See you soon
Have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July !
