I right up to the deadline for getting my CCC #3 challenge posted. We’re up to number 13, you can read the details at Studio L3. As usual we use a product from Tim Holtz’s A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3.
The challenge is found on page 35, Worn Covers. I altered my cover to make an album to put the many pumpkin patch visit photos I have of my grandchildren. I know they will enjoy looking through it often.
I used a technique I came across while browsing the web. I glued Grungeboard shapes on the cover and used Glue n seal to adhere one ply of a damp paper towel. After it was dry, I painted the whole cover with Black Soot Distress Paint. Once the black paint was dry, I used metallic paints to highlight the shapes and texture. It turned out great but taking a good photo turned out to be nearly impossible!
I think I’ll try a Christmas-themed album using the same technique. The sponsor for challenge 13 is Inspiration Emporium and the Curiosity Crew will pick a winner for a fun gift from Tim.
Thanks for coming by and, as always, I love reading your comments.
