Compendium of Curiosities Challenge – Week 14

This weeks CC2C is Guilded Kraft Glassine found on page 39 of Tim Holtz’s compendium of curiosities II. As always, the challenge is hosted by the lovely Linda Ledbetter and this week is sponsored by the very generous folk over at The Funky Junkie Boutique

I decided to take a wee walk on the other side for this challenge, and to make something that is really different to the style I would usually take.

Both the flowers and the background piece were created using Tim’s technique. The embossed stamp image is from one of the brand new Stampers Anonymous sets, re-releasing old classics.

Compendium of Curiosities Challenge – Week 13

This weeks cc2c is Tim Holtz’s Spritz and Flick Technique found on page 42 of Compendium of Curiosities II. It’s also sponsored by the lovey folk over at Simon Says Stamp

Much like last week, I’ll let the pictures do the talking, though I will confess my disappointment that my stamped winged man did not photograph properly. In reality the plastic layered over the stamped image, is a fabulous 3d image. Shame I couldn’t get the camera to pick it up.

I’d also like to say how delighted I was to win last weeks challenge, over the moon doesn’t even come close. Huge thanks to the lovely Linda Ledbetter

Words aside, here’s my tag.

Compendium of Curiosities Challenge – Weeks 11 & 12

This weeks CC2C hosted by the lovely Linda Ledbetter was one that I utterly adored! So much so that I made this one, and immediately started another. The nature of this challenge though means that there isn’t much I can say about it lest I give away how to do it so I’ll stick with a million pictures and let them speak my words.

Enjoy!

What’s on MY work desk Wednesday.

So, a little birdie tells me that it’s July already. Now, there’s two reasons why that can’t possibly be true, firstly, look outside! July is a month of sun, warmth and lazy days in the garden. If you’re looking out of your window, then you must agree that it’s definitely more like a slightly warmer February or March. Secondly, July is the month of my birthday and I can promise you now that I’m definitely NOT getting any older. So you see, it’s not July. So there.

What it IS though is Wednesday, which means its time to don your nosy Parker glasses and feast your eyes over the many desks that congregate over at the lovely Julia’s Place

Here’s my desk today, taken at 5am this morning because I’m rubbish and completely forgot yesterday.

As you can see, there’s not the usual huge pile of stuff. I’ve actually got a fairly good space to work on a configurations box for cc2c.

Thank you ever so much for all the lovely messages of support, you guys are truly wonderful. See you next week.
