Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 5! Simon Says Stamp and Show ... Anything Goes!
This weeks Studio L3 challenges us to do a project "Shattered Stains" from Tim Holtz's A Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 2, page 48, sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. I have done a canvas with "Shattered Stains" butterflies and twig and leaf from Tim Holtz's magnetic dies.
I am also submitting this project to Simon Says Stamp and Simon Show
I used grungeboard, distressed crackle paint and distress stains to do the Shattered Stains.
I used a canvas 8" x 8" with papers from Tim Holtz. The central section I stamped with the words "Love Wish Dream" from Tim Holtz's "Stuff to Say". On the blue section I mounted all the "Shattered Stains" items and on the outer section I used pink again. I used distress inks broken china and victorian velvet to distress the edges of the papers. Finally I used Tim Holtz's idea-ology corners to complete the canvas.
