CC2C Challenge - Week 6

Good afternoon everyone!  I can't believe that we are already in week 6 of the Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2 challenge hosted by Linda on the StudioL3 blog.  It's been a lot of fun so I'm really looking forward to the challenges Linda chooses in the weeks ahead.  This week's challenge is generously sponsored by The Funkie Junkie's Boutique.  A lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate!  Sweet!

This week's technique is Tissue Wrap Collage which can be found on page 38 of Tim Holtz's book A Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 2.  If you don't already have the book then you should!  Get an autographed copy here!

Here is my entry for this week:

I decided to try a canvas for this round.  This is a 5x5 gallery wrapped canvas.  I like to add elements to the sides of the canvas when it's deep enough.  I think it adds interest to the piece.  For the technique I used the Terminology Tissue Wrap and the Sizzix Alterations Movers and Shapers Mini Flourish cut from Grungeboard.  The house was cut from Grungeboard using the Sizzix Alterations Artful Dwellings die and the Movers and Shapers mini openings die.  The bird is from the Sizzix Alterations Movers and Shapers mini bird and cage die.  I used Distress Ink in Faded Jeans, Shaded Lilac, Forest Moss, Broken China, Mustard Seed and Vintage Photo.  I used Adirondack Paint Dabbers in Aqua and Willow.  The paper used for the house and the stamped images is from Tim's Lost and Found Paper Stash.  The stamps are from Tim's Visual Artistry Regal Flourish, Impression Obsession, and Character Contructions-French Laundry and Theater of Dreams.

Thanks for stopping by!
