Challenge 17: Fragment Charms
Sponsored by Simon Says Stamp
I have to tell you, it felt so weird getting up last Monday morning and not having a new challenge to post, and I've really been looking forward to getting back into our regular weekly schedule. So... without further ado, let's get to it!
Please open your Compendium of Curiosities to page 64, where you'll find Tim's technique for making Fragment Charms! I'm a total jewelry hound, so I've been looking forward to this particular challenge since the very beginning. They are so easy and such a blast to make, and people just love to admire them. Truly— find an image you like, turn it into a fragment charm and hang it on a chain around your neck. You will get both "oohs" and "ahhs" and feel very stylish and cool.
Our sweet friends at Simon Says Stamps have a completely fabulous prize for this week's winner! Hot off the press (or however it is that dies are made):
That's right! TWO of the awesome, brand new Tim Holtz Alterations Halloween Dies!!! Yeah, baby!
To be eligible to win, create your own Fragment Charm art and link it to this blog via the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. Please honor these two simple rules:
1. Follow the technique as it's written in the Compendium of Curiosities (adding your own special flair, of course!); and
2. Out of respect to Tim, please don't post the technique instructions on your blog.
And as always, our much-loved (and fresh off the cruise!) Gloria, List Mom at the All Things Tim group at Yahoo, will also send a sweet surprise to one of this week's participants! Just upload your image to the Compendium of Curiosities folder at the ATT home page, and be sure to tag your photo "CCC #17." If you're not yet a member at All Things Tim, please join! They're the nicest people, and it's a great place to make friends and learn lots of cool stuff!
Challenge 17 is open until 8 PM Mountain Time on Sunday, October 17. As always, the winners will be announced super early the following morning, right before the next Challenge is posted.
Ready to rock the charms? I'm so excited to see what you create! Have an awesome week, and have SO much fun!
My steampunk necklace and earring charms were made using papers from the Tim Holtz Lost & Found collection and the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutant pack. The lock and key are grungeboard shapes, and all other charms are from Tim Holtz's Ideaology line.
