Tim's Compendium III Challenge No. 1

Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge!

I love all things Distress, so I was very exited to get my hands on Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities Volume III.  Unfortunately as often happens I read it eagerly, but I did not actually dig into trying the techniques.  So I was very happy when Studio L3 started a Compendium of Curiosities Volume III biweekly challenge. Below is my entry week 1 of the challenge - 43. Paint Marbling.  You need the book for the technique.  To learn more about the "CC3C" challenge here.

I went a little overboard with this project so it has taken me about 12 days to complete.  Now here I am posting near the end of the challenge entry period.  It was so much fun to add layer upon layer.  Below is my sample of the technique panel with a detailed picture of the finished projection.

I've mostly used my Club Scrap materials in addition to the Distress products of course.  Here is a list of supplies used to the best of my recollect:

  • Burlap panel
  • Distress paint
  • Distress ink
  • Lindy Stamp Gang embossing power, star-burst spays, and magical micas
  • Club Scrap Bugs and Fire & Ice collections stamps and hybrid ink
  • Club Scrap Hematite embossing powered
  • Club Scrap Bugs and Get the Picture card stock and ribbon
  • Club Scrap Key and Ribbons
  • Petaloo and Prima Flowers
  • Martha Stewart Punch
  • Pearl Pen
  • Other miscellaneous embellishments from my stash
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and your comments are greatly appreciated.
