Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #4


It's been a hectic couple of weeks here, inventory at the store and busy on the home front, so I wasn't sure if I would be able to find the time for Linda Ledbetter's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #4.
I managed to fit in a tag for the Texture Paste and Layering Stencils challenge (page 49 from Tim Holtz's book).  Here's my tag:


If you haven't played with stencils and modelling paste, you're missing out! The stencils I used were, Tim's Splattered, Measured, and Speckles.  I also used Tim's stamps from his Typography and Cracks & Speckles sets.  I used Wendy Vecchi's Crackle paste, Tim Holtz Distress stains and inks.
My gears were cut out with paper covered chipboard and Sizzix's Tim Holtz Movers & Shapers Gears.

If you haven't played along yet, head on over to Linda's blog and check out what the Curiosity Crew have created for each challenge.  They are amazing artists! And if that isn't enough, there are prizes to be won for each challenge.

I've mentioned this previously, but to play along you need a copy of Tim's Compendium Of Curiosities Volume 3, which I believe there are still some left at Urban Scrapbook!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Thanks for the tag, it makes me want to play along. I have the splatter stencil but have not used it, you make it look like it belongs.

Oh my goodness Jan I love it!!! Your color combinations are gorgeous and I love the faux rust/patina. Great crackle paste, very well done! Wonderful inspiration!

I knew someone would ask me that! When I was writing my post, I couldn't remember what I had used. lol! I know I used Wild Honey Distress Stain, and I had a number of bottles on my desk, so it was a combination of any of these; Evergreen Bough, Broken China, and Peacock Feathers. The splatters were Lindy's Midnight Copper Obsidian Embossing powder over Wendy Vecchi's embossing paste.
