Good morning, friends, and welcome to the 21st installment of the Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities Challenge! You guys did an incredible job on the Industrial Grunge last week, and it was so much fun to see your creative genius in action (as always!).
This week, we'll be playing with a ridiculously fun technique that you'll enjoy incorporating into your holidays cards: Perfect Distress! This is one of my favorites, and I love the shimmery, misty look it gives. Be forewarned, it's a little addictive, and you may find yourself Perfectly Distressing everything in your path! You'll find the instructions on page 38 of the Compendium of Curiosities.
Before you dive in, please take a second to check out the poll on the top left sidebar on vote on whether you'd like to continue doing a challenge each week during December, or would prefer to move to an every other week schedule for that very busy month. I'm fine with whichever you guys want, and I thought the most fair way to go about it would be to let the participants decide.
Be sure to check out their wicked-cool weekly challenge blog, Simon Says Stamp and Show, too! There are all kinds of spectacular things going on there, and you're welcome to fashion your piece so it fits the criteria of both challenges!
To be eligible to win the shopping spree, simply create your own art using the Perfect Distress technique and link it to this blog via the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. You're in the running as long as you 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
As always, sweet Gloria, List Mom at the All Things Tim group at Yahoo, will send a lovely 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 #21." If you're not yet a member at All Things Tim, wait no more! You'll loving being part of this brilliant group of Tim fans!
Challenge 21is open until 8 PM Mountain Time on Sunday, November 15. As always, the winners will be announced super early the following morning, right before the next Challenge is posted.
And on that note... go forth and Perfectly Distress! I hope you all have a wonderful, creative week, and I'm so looking forward to seeing what you create!
