I'm so happy that I was able to put something together for challenge #2 since I missed the first one!! The technique chosen for this week's Compendium of Curiosities Vol 3 challenge, hosted by the Linda Ledbetter and the Curiosity Crew, is Distress Glitter on page 56. The sponsor for this week, with a $25 gift certificate, is the Funkie Junkie's Boutique!
For my project I created a canvas using one of the burlap canvas panels from the District Market collection. I've been hoarding them so I decided it was time to put one to use! The photo is of my maternal grandparents. They never went to Paris but I just love this photo of them!
As you can see I glittered up Tim's Sizzix Alterations Eiffel Tower and then distressed it with walnut DI. The trellis pieces are leftover from my April Tag of 2014. I dabbed the mirror trellis with some latte alcohol ink to add some interest. The remaining embellishments include a French railroad ticket from the new Idea-ology Expedition Ephemera Pack, a hotel sticker from the Lost and Found Salvage Stickers, a crown from the Idea-ology Adornments Regal collection, and a band from the Idea-ology Observation Wordbands collection. I mounted the photo on a piece of Tim's French Industrial paper stash, distressed it with walnut DI and the added the words from the Idea-ology Life Quotes and Words rub-on sets.
Thanks for stopping by!
