Compendium of Curiosities 2 Special Edition: Challenges 11 and 12!

It’s Configurations Time!
A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol 2, pages 33 and 34
With a crazy-awesome Tim Holtz prize package up for grabs!

Welcome back, blog friends (or, welcome, period, if it’s your first visit)! Thanks for hanging in there with me during my big job transition. The long, LONG graveyard shifts are over, and I’m re-learning how to sleep at night. Finally, I have some time to be creative again, which my spirit needs… desperately!

This challenge is a two-week-long double-header comprised of Parts 1 and 2 of Tim’s Configurations techniques from Compendium 2. Now’s the time to either begin a new Configurations project, or (like I’ll be doing) finish one that’s been waiting for some attention. You’re welcome to use any size of the Idea-ology Configurations boxes, or a Configurations tray for this project. 

A great big challenge calls for a great big prize, and baby, I’ve got one! From the magical stash that Mario so kindly sent, there’s a treasure trove of Tim Holtz goodness up for grabs! Check it out:

To participate in our super-sized CC2C #11/12 (and be eligible for Mario’s awesome prize!), create your own Configurations art using the techniques of pages 33 and 34 of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2. Link a photo of your creation to this blog using the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. You’re a rockstar as long as you honor these simple rules:

Follow the technique as it’s written in A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2 (adding your own special flair, of course!), and clearly state that the technique comes from Tim Holtz’s book.   

Include a link to this post in your blog post (or photo description if you’re linking from an online photo-sharing site).
Out of respect to Tim, please don’t post the technique instructions on your blog! Any entries that don’t follow this rule will be unlinked.

This challenge closes on Thursday, July 12 at 8 pm MTD, and the winner will be announced in a special blog post that night.  

Please see the CC2C FAQ here for more information.

Be aware, to qualify for the prize you don’t have to submit a finished Configurations piece. You just have to complete the two techniques from the book. However, we’d all LOVE to see your finished masterpiece if you’re able to get it done!

Okay, guys, go forth and configure! A huge thanks, too, to Linda at The Funkie Junkie’s Boutique, sponsor of Challenge 10. Check out her post here, announcing the winner!

Have a wonderful, creative couple of weeks!
