Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 27!

Distress Misting Masks!

Happy Monday, and happy 27th installment of this celebration of Tim Holtz’s A Compendium of Curiosities! Holy cow, it’s hard to believe there are only nine more challenges to go before we’ve worked our way through every technique in the book. Thank you so much for being part of this project. I hope you’re having as much fun as I am!

Please open your Compendium to page 60, where you’ll find Tim’s instructions for Distress Misting Masks, and let’s get started. If you’re new to this series and don’t have the book, you can get a copy from the man himself by visiting Tim’s website.

I’m delighted to welcome back It’s Always Fabulous as our sponsor for this week! Sue Stoughton, the owner of this awesome ETSY shop, is an absolute sweetheart, and has such a great selection of the very best products in her online store.

Sue’s compiled an enormous and wonderful Valentine-themed collection to send to one lucky participant in this week’s challenge, and it will include Tim’s Heart Wings Die, Tim’s Love Struck stamp set, some red velvet ribbon, two Color Washes and two Liquid Pearls and two Distress Stickles – all in appropriate colors, of course!  Plus, she’s adding three sheets of gorgeous German Scrap and a set of sweet Jenni Bowlin chipboard Valentine buttons. What a spectacular prize package!!!

To be eligible to win this gorgeous Valentine’s Day treasure trove from It’s Always Fabulous, simply create your own art using the Distress Misting Masks technique and link it to this blog via the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. You’re in the running as long as you honor these two simple rules:

1. Follow the technique as it’s written in A Compendium of Curiosities (adding your own special flair, of course!); and

2. Out of respect to Tim, please don’t post the technique instructions on your blog!

Gloria, the lovely List Mom at the All Things Tim group at Yahoo, will also send a lovely gift from her special stash to one lucky participant! Just upload your image to the Compendium of Curiosities folder at the ATT home page, and be sure to tag your photo “CCC #27.” If you aren’t a member of All Things Tim, please join! It’s a great place to meet incredibly nice and talented people.

Challenge 27 is open until 8 pm MST next Sunday, January 16, and I know you’re going to rock the Distress Misting Masks technique!

Have an wonderful week, everyone!
