I'm following the challenges being set by the lovely Linda
on her blog Studio L3 working from Tim Holtz' new book
A Compendium of Curiosities Volume II
The first challenge is to create something by using the
technique on page 66 of the book
whereby we had to create our own 'Custom Foam Stamp'
I used my favourite Sizzix Bigz die to create my stamp
'Sewing Room' by Tim Holtz/Alterations range.
I made this rather messy double page spread in
a book which I'm currently altering using a sewing theme.
I stamped the dress form on each page using
acrylic paint, then distressed inked through some sequin waste.
This first challenge is being sponsored by
who will give a $25 gift certificate to one randomly-chosen
participant in this week's challenge - how generous is that!
I'm hoping to join in with more of Linda's challenges
as it makes me actually use the book rather than just having
it sitting on my desk looking pretty or should that be grungy - lol!
Wonder which techinque will be next!
