I know I shouldn't have, but I was so inspired to make this piece and it applied perfectly to TWO challenges, so I'm taking the two-for-one deal... hope you'll forgive me....
This week over on Linda's blog, we're up to week 8 on the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge! This week, you'll turn to p. 39 in Tim's book to learn about inking grunge. If you're interested in learning all about Tim Holtz' products and get some great ideas on how to use them - go check out Tim's site HERE (and if you buy the book from him he'll even sign it for you!). I had some extra tattered florals in grungepaper that worked perfectly for this technique.
On the Lots To Do Challenge, this week's theme is "The Scenic Route".... I used the sentiment to make this point, and it's something we all should remember to do.
Here's my dual-purpose creation:
The green background is a sheet of paper from the Old World stack, glued to a 4x4 coaster using multi medium. Then I glued that piece to the BACK of a fragment (the biggest one that I never knew what to do with --- LOVE finding uses for things I've had forever but never used) - I used glossy accents for this part. The layered flower, the DYMO sentiment, and the altered metal flower are all glued to the TOP of the fragment using glossy accents.
Here's a close up of the layered flower - I sprayed each layer front and back with Glimmer Mist (pearl) before assembling.
Hope your week is off to a good start! I have a few more things to share this week, before heading here on Thursday!
See you soon!
