CC3 Challenge # 11

Hey everybody ... Happy Friday! Boy am I sliding in here tonight just under that deadline!!
I will not be defeated... it's been a very hectic week.
My friend Linda Ledbetter over at http://lindaledbetter.com/2014/09/compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-11.html has worked so very hard to bring us this challenge I'm determined to hang in there. We are going through Tim Holtz's A Compendium  of Curiosities Volume III ( you have got to get this book) if you visit Linda's site she gives you all the details for joining us in the challenges. Our sponsors this week are my friends at http://www.inspirationemporium.com/ ( I love that Joy and her family); if you have never check them out ; even if you don't participate in the challenges go visit them online; you will not be disappointed they got all your Tim Holtz stash you could want... other stuff too! Trust me you'd love to win that $ 50 dollar gift certificate. The Curiosity Crew has once again "jump started " us with their awesome projects... so be sure to check them out and show them some love.
You know the drill ,  I'm not giving  you any instructions EXCEPT to tell you open your book!!
This weeks Challenge is Effect Powders found on page 52...

You ready?? Okay I've got to admit that because of my hectic week I was feeling pretty silly this week ( when I'm stressed I sometime get silly) ... my project was born out of silliness. Have you seen Tim's Found Relatives ... oh my goodness they are too much fun! I think he "lost " one I found  Esquire Luscious Thergoode III ( hahaha ... no they don't have names... I named him)... I had way too much fun with this. Since it's nearing Halloween month I thought this theme would be fun.

 One of my loves is to use "re purpose" items around the house , so my background is corregated cardboard from a package I received; I actually torn it up to expose the corregated area. I used this weeks challenge techniques on various parts of the background and on the owl, crow and skeleton head. After seeing the results I decided to experiment and I also used the technique on my embellishments ( the brads and the key). Pretty cool technique. I also used my Gothic layering stencil... so fun.

Well I think I've pretty much covered it for this time. I'm hoping you enjoyed my project ... just fun decoration piece for Halloween, can't wait to add it to my collection of decorations for Halloween. Oh and I'll probably use the other pieces you saw in the photo for another challenge. I'm on jury duty so I don't know if I'll get my other projects finished. Hope to be back soon with more goodies the weekend. Oh and I don't plan to push this deadline for #12 ( crossing my fingers) !
I apologize ahead of time for any errors I failed to catch... I'll do better I promise :)


  1. Hey Rea...ack! Jury duty! I hope the trial goes quickly for you. :) Your Halloween project is so cute! Esquire Luscious Thergoode III is lookin' pretty good, surrounded by such perfectly done EP technique pieces. I love your spooky corrugated and black and white background. All of your EP pieces really work well with your design. Thanks so much for joining us at CC3C. <3 Candy
