Compendium of Curiosities, Challenge 10: Tissue Wrap Flowers

My Lady's Dress

Our thanks this week go to The Funkie Junkie Boutique and Studio L3 for sponsoring and and mentoring this challenge.  Though I sometimes forget we are ever grateful to T!m Holtz for his inspirations.  I am not a card maker love 3-D.  I ordered a dress form made of wire, glittered for some pizazz, tulle woven through.  I added the tissue flowers tinted with green and orange Distress Inks.
Kind of a fun piece to put on your dressing table.  In my case I am giving mine to my granddaughter who was a help in tinting 18 of these little jewels.  Have a great week, going to look up your lovely pieces.

Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 9: Pocket Watch

White Pearls

 I would like to thank Studio L3 and Simon Says  for moderating and sponsoring this week's challenge. I really enjoyed creating this.  I used one of Wendy V.'s surface pieces to give the illusion of a watch in a watch.  Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities 2 is a great source of inspiration each week.  I also found pleasing pieces in my stash of Graphic 45 paper.  Have a great week.

Compendium of Curosities, Challenge 8: Repurposed Packaging

Journey to the Center of the Mind

 Thank you Linda, from Studio L3 for sponsoring this fun challenge.  I had always wanted to use the Retro paper for T!m, so I finally got a chance. Most of you are too young to remember the old black and white movie  "Snakepit", about a young woman becomes psychotic and then struggles back to sanity.  It's a great flick and was my inspiration for this tag. Coupled with the old song "Journey to the Center of the Mind", a head stamp, Retro paper, T!m's journey token, as well as a matching embossing folder, our weekly challange, and voila, a tag.  I have been keeping this heavy plastic for quite a while, so happily another cool use for it!  Hope your week is going well, Happy Art Adventure!
