Welcome to the new challenge celebrating Tim Holtz’s book, the Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 3. Our new theme is Altered Surfaces (found on page 45) and believe it or not, we only have ONE more challenge to go after this one. We’ve worked our way through the whole book! Thanks to all who have joined in and encouraged us along the way. We hope to have a great turn-out for these last two challenges!
Our sponsor this week is Inspiration Emporium. THANK YOU, INSPIRATION EMPORIUM! A random winner will receive a $50 shopping spree on their online store. There are also prizes donated by Tim and Mario for the Curiosity Crew’s favorite project. You’ll find the Rules and FAQs at Linda’s site… please take a moment to read these so you are definitely in the running for the prizes.
I worked on an 8″ canvas using loads of Distress Paints, and chose several different materials for my altered surfaces: clear acrylic pre-cut bird (Heidi Swapp), black “Note to Self” (Alpha Parts), clear acrylic fragments (Tim Holtz), and clear acrylic packaging material (wings).
I loved the way the bird came out but it had no wings, so I diecut some feathers from Tim’s Sizzix Writing Desk die, cut parts of them and treated them, and adhered to my bird.
The fragments were done with the same technique, and I embedded the die-cut letters in the process.
I think the colors blended really well on the “Note to Self” and love how bits of the black show through. I want to use those Alpha Parts more often.
Thanks so much for the visit today. If we’re not already connected, please sign up for my newsletter or find me on whatever social media platforms you like. I’m on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, or Twitter.
Hope to see you at CC3C!
