COMPENDIUM OF CURIOSITIES 3 - CHALLENGE #1

Hooray, the CC challenges are back hosted by the one and only Linda Ledbetter. Every 2 weeks will see another challenge from Tim's third book so if you want to join in now is the time to go buy this fabulous record of techniques by the King of Distress himself. Even more special news for this set of challenges is the introduction of a very talented set of people who have been specially selected to become the Curiosity Crew and will join either Inspiration Emporium or the Funkie Junkie Boutique in awarding prizes for a selected winner each challenge. The massive box of prizes which has been divided amongst the Crew members has been generously supplied by Tim and Mario, so I hope to have a go most fortnights if possible. The first challenge is paint marbling as shown on page 43. Obviously you will need to follow the instructions on that page to create your entry. This is what I came up with.
I used the technique to make the background for my little picture and also for the foliage and flowers. As I need some new cards in my stash for birthdays etc. I decided to make this 8"x8" card instead of a tag. As with all things Tim, I had a lot of fun making it and am ready for the next challenge now.

Hi Joanne. You did such a great job of marrying your beautifully marbled background to all of the intricate pieces you added to create such a pretty spring scene. The bird swooping over the wildflowers in the meadow creates such a serene setting. Thanks so much for sharing your art with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
