Time to Create.
Hello all my fellow bloggers. I have been patiently waiting on my copy of Tim Holtz new Book which finally arrived enabling me to play at the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 3 run by Linda Ledbetter here. Each fortnight a page in the book is chosen to play along with a technique. I unfortunately missed the first challenge waiting on my book, but I am excited to share my entry for the second challenge. Info for the current challenge is on Page 56 of Tim’s new book.
First of all I decided what colours to use in my Distress products - which are all listed at the bottom of my post and chose a few stamps and dies to compliment my Size 8 tag. I stamped my chandelier style stamp with Gesso and then started to layer on some Distress Stain. Once I was happy with this I started to stamp on my accent stamps with coordinating colours and more Distress. I don’t have a full photo of my tag before layering up as I got carried away and realised as I was just about finished it. So I will now just show some photo’s around my tag, as you will have to get Tim’s book to find out the How To technique applied with the Distress Glitter.
Anyway, pop on over to the challenge blog and you will see lots of fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.
Thanks to my husband Chris for picking up the Distress Glitter so well in the photographs. Hope you are all managing to get some time to create this week.
