Welcome to the new challenge celebrating Tim Holtz’s book, the Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 3. Challenge #19 is “Frayed Fabric” (found on page 66 – if you still need a copy, you can get one autographed by Tim right here.)
Our sponsor this week is Inspiration Emporium, and 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. This is the new prize pack:
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 don’t sew very often so just threading my machine took me awhile! I used one of Tim’s fabric squares from the Eclectic Elements 6″ crafting pack. I started out diecutting a postage stamp frame (Sizzix) and painting it black.
After positioning my collage key and adding baubles, I cut up some little labels so I could extend them to fit longer words.
I did a bit of stenciling on a piece of patterned paper that matched Tim’s fabric pretty well, and matted my postage stamp frame onto it.
