Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge 8

Over at Linda's place called Studio L3 she is challenging us to use Tim's latest book CC3 (for short).  This weeks challenge is No8 on page 58.  Every week Tim and Mario sponsor a prize for the project deemed worthy by the Creative Crew.  To be eligible for this, you have to comment on all the Crew's inspirational pieces.  I was lucky enough to win this prize a few weeks ago, but due to the US postal service having a mishap, I am still waiting for it to arrive...Poor Linda has had to post it twice as it got returned to her, I do hope they reimburse her for the first postage!  You will be the first to see the prize when it does arrive!

Then being the week of the even challenge a prize is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique for a randomly drawn entry.

I saw two people (Marianne Hagen and Jassy Veale) cover tins with foil for the last Challenge to house their stationery.  I thought this a brilliant idea as I am running out of wall space for yet another canvas, am all tagged out from doing the challenge on Tims blog from 1 August and could do with something to put my paint brushes in.  I don't think I have done their inspirations justice, but hey, I had fun, I now have a useful tin and that's what counts!
 As luck would have it the two pieces fitted perfectly round the tin with no extra bits required to join them.

  8. I love that you made the cover from two different pieces, it means you can turn it round and get a different view each day. A fabulous piece of re-cycling too! Anne x

  10. Oh my goodness! The faded layers section is gorgeous and that's such a clever idea to replicate the design in metal on the flipside. What a fantastic transformation. Love it!!! Jenny x

  12. This is beautiful; your faded layers technique turned out wonderfully! Can I ask what colors of alcohol ink you used? That is a great combination!
