With a Special Prize from Tim, Mario and Me!
Well, CCCers, this is it! Challenge 35. I'm thrilled that we've covered every single challenge in Tim Holtz's magnificent book, A Compendium of Curiosities...
... and at the same time, I'm sad that it's over!
(Or is it??)
Throughout this series, I've made it a point to not do the techniques in the order they appear in the book, but I always knew I wanted to end with the final lesson Tim presented in the Compendium: Design Details. What a fun way to wrap things up! I had a blast making my example piece, and I bet you're going to enjoy this one immensely, too. Go ahead and open your Compendium of Curiosities to page 67, and let's get started!
I have one final batch of those wonderful goodies Tim and Mario sent, and the winner of Challenge 35 will receive them! Can you think of a more wonderful keepsake than an autographed Umbrella Man stamp set? ( I had to twist my own arm to let go of this, but you guys are worth it!). There's also a stash of those beautiful Vintage Shabby Papers, a set of Idea-ology Word Keys and a Sanding Grip. Oh, and I've added a copy of one of my other favorite books in the whole world, Tim's Distressables 2!
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!
As she has each week, the lovely and talented Gloria, List Mom at the All Things Tim group, will also send a sweet prize to one of our participants! Simply add your image to the Compendium of Curiosities folder at the All Things Tim home page, and be sure to tag your photo "CCC #35." Gloria will choose her winner from that folder. If you're not yet a member at All Things Tim, well, what are you waiting for?! They're the greatest people, and will welcome you with open arms!
So, I've dropped a few hints over these past few weeks that there just might be something new happening once we wrap up this final week of the CCC. I'll give you all the details when I announce the winners of Challenge 35 next Monday morning, but suffice it to say, it ain't over, baby! You might find a hint or two hidden in my example piece above, if you look really closely...
Have an amazingly wonderful week, everyone!
