Hello:) I hope this day finds you well and enjoying the moment!
As this blog is a first for me, so is this entry into another challenge. Below is my very FIRST, (so scary!)
mixed media project ever for me! I love taking pictures and recently began playing around and trying to enhance the images I capture, as you might see from my other photos below. I have always wanted to do more than the image alone. I want to push and see what else I can create using my images as part of something else, creatively.
Along the way at the wonderful craft shops I discovered the massive creative line of Tim Holtz. I LOVE the Steampunk nature and feel to the goods! So exciting!! Thus far I have only gathered a few things for my creative stash. Googling I discovered all these wonderful blogs and was so inspired~ my bookmarks are jammed with so much good stuff!
Along came Linda Ledbetter's Studio L3 Blog with the Compendium of Curiosities Vol 3 Challenge, CC3C! She assembled a wonderful creative crew and together they are putting on this CC3 Challenge. They are all SO talented and I feel so small. See the amazing creative Crew here. All the details of the CC3C week 1 are here.
To make it even more GIANT, there are prizes generously donated by Tim Holtz & his Business Manager Mario Rossi. That in and of itself is soooooo amazing and generous BUT there's more! Inspiration Emporium is sponsoring the odd numbered challenges with a $50 gift certificate. The Funky Junkie Boutique is sponsoring the even numbered challenges!
Enough words, thank you SO much if you read all that!
This is my piece for the Compendium of Curiosities Vol 3 Challenge, page 43~ Distress Paint Marbling. The image is clickable for a larger peak:)
My image of a pretty dandelion flower, layered and image transferred by gel medium to cardstock, then layered on the marbled paper below. Lots of open room to grow as I intend to "Enjoy the Journey" and not be too stressed!!
