First off is Challenge #5, on page 39 called, Distress Watercoloring from Tim Holtz's book, Compendium of Curiosities Volume III. Here's my completed project:
I decided to create an inside to the cover of my folio project from challenge #2.
Here's a look at my Distress Watercoloring. I created a frame around my stamped image (Tim Holtz Classics #1 Stamp) with Tim Holtz Industrious stickers. Before adhering it to Tim Holtz Wallflower patterned paper that was trimmed to fit my folio, I embossed the left edge with the texture fade that is included with Sizzix's Layered Dragonfly die set. This was lightly inked.
and adhered them underneath my stamped image. I then adhered my page to the inside of my folio with matte medium.
Challenge #6 was from page 37 of Compendium of Curiosities, called Altered Burlap Panel.
Here's my project:
I used Wendy Vecchi Gold and Crackle embossing paste, Tim Holtz Ephemera, Wallflower paper, Doily Stencil. Tissue, Distress Stain and Inks, and a Nature Adornment. The metal zipper was die-cut using Sizzix's Zipper die.
And finally Challenge #7 from page 46, Painted Industrial:
Love this technique! I used Sizzix's Tim Holtz Arrows and Boardwalk Texture Fade Set, and Layered Dragonfly die & Texture Fade Set. Additional materials were, Ranger's Adhesive Backed Metal Foil, clear acrylic, Tim Holtz Distress paint, Wallflower patterned paper, Industrious Stickers, Metal Frame and also Izink pigment ink and stained seam binding.
Here's a close up of my dragonfly. There's a layer of embossed paper, then embossed acrylic which I had a bit of adhesive backed foil on the acrylic.
There's my three challenge projects, hope you find time to join in on the fun or visit Linda's blog for great inspiration!
