Well, you guys, we Curiosity Crew members have seen a lot of awesomeness in our lives, but you still managed to surprise and delight us with your INCREDIBLE entries for the first Tim Holtz CC3 Challenge. We’ve spent the last two weeks OOH-ing and AHH-ing over your art! We have a tough job ahead, trying to select a Curiosity Crew’s Choice to receive the first Tim and Mario Prize Package! The winner will be announced in a separate blog post this Tuesday, where we’ll also unveil the recipient of the $50 Inspiration Emporium gift certificate…. so don’t forget to check back and see if you’ve got a prize headed your way. One thing we can all agree on— when it comes to amazing art, you’re ALL winners! Thanks so much to everyone who joined in.
This week, we had a blast playing with Tim’s Distress Glitter Technique, which you’ll find on page 56 of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. #3. In fact, even the crew members who don’t particularly love sparkle had a good time with this one. Distress Glitter is just… different. It’s cool. REALLY cool! We can’t wait to see the creative ways you put this technique into action!
Before you dive in, though, please be sure to check out the CC3C F.A.Q. if you haven’t already. It will hopefully answer any and all questions you might have about participation in our challenges (if not, please leave a comment here and I’ll respond ASAP!).
Please know that everyone is welcome to participate in the CC3C, but you must work from your personal copy of Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 3. The Crew will not be posting technique instructions on our blogs, and in order to be eligible to win either prize, you must not, either. We require this out of respect and appreciation for Tim, who put countless hours and passion into writing the book. If you don’t have a copy, you can order one directly from Tim, who will sign it just for you!
As with Challenge 1, the team and I will be selecting a “Curiosity Crew’s Choice” winner who will win a fantastic collection of Tim’s products, courtesy of Tim himself and Mario Rossi, his business manager and everyone’s favorite “Behind the Scenes” social media rockstar! Please note: In order to be eligible to win, you must visit each of our team members’ blogs and leave a comment there. You can easily access their blogs by clicking on their project photos (your comment on this post counts as your comment on my blog).
I’m delighted to introduce THE FUNKIE JUNKIE BOUTIQUE, a wonderful online shop that will be sponsoring all our even-numbered challenges! Owner and all-around lovely person, Linda Coughlin, is offering a fabulous $25 GIFT CERTIFICATE to one very lucky winner! All you need to do to be eligible is link your project here, and mention The Funkie Junkie Boutique in your blog post.

Without further ado, here are the samples we created. We hope they inspire you!
