Happy July, and on behalf of the Curiosity Crew, welcome to the latest installment in our voyage through Tim Holtz’s most recent book! Whether this is your first challenge with us or you’ve been participating from the beginning, we’re so happy you’re here.
The winners of our Challenge 5 prizes will be announced in a new blog post next Saturday, July 12, so if you played along last time, remember to check back and see if you’re a winner!
Challenge 6 introduces Tim’s Altered Burlap Panel Technique, which you’ll find on page 37 of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. #3 (a.k.a “CC3”). You’re going to have all kinds of fun with this one, because you really get to make it your own: Incorporate memorabilia that’s meaningful to you, if you wish, or simply play! Please do note that you must use one of Tim’s Burlap Panels in your project in order to link to this challenge. You may use a District Market burlap canvas if you wish.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the CC3C, but you must work from your personal copy of the CC3. The Crew will not be posting technique instructions on our blogs, and participants must not, either. We require this out of respect and appreciation for all the work Tim invested in writing the book. If you don’t have a copy, you can order one directly from Tim, who will be glad to autograph it for you! If you have any questions about the challenge in general, check out the CC3C F.A.Q. here.
As always, we’ll select a “Curiosity Crew’s Choice” winner who will receive 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 luminary! 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).
The Funkie Junkie Boutique is back to sponsor Challenge 6, and lovely owner Linda Coughlin is offering a fabulous $25 shopping spree to one very lucky CC3Cer! For a chance to win, link your project here and mention The Funkie Junkie Boutique in your blog post. Be sure to check out the shop– it’s great, and stocked to the brim with all our favorite crafting goodies!
