Compendium of Curiosities 3, Challenge 7

CC3C 07

Hooray, it’s Saturday, and time for the new Compendium of Curiosities Challenge (a.k.a. “CC3C)! The Curiosity Crew and I are delighted you’re here to help us explore Tim Holtz’s most recent book.

Challenge #7
…is a particular favorite of mine: Painted Industrial, which you’ll find on page 46 of the CC3.  You really can’t top the versatility of this technique– it works equally well for vintage, modern, steampunk, whimsical, and cyberpunk styles, and is awesome in both two- and three-dimensional projects. When you check out the variety of beautiful projects the Crew ladies created, you’ll see what I mean. MAJOR fun, you guys!

Just a Reminder:
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.

Prizes?! We’ve Got ‘Em!
As always, we’ll select a “Curiosity Crew’s Choice” winner who will receive a spectacular assortment of Tim’s products, courtesy of Tim himself and Mario Rossi, his business manager and everyone’s favorite “Behind the Scenes” social media rockstar (follow Mario on Instagram and you’ll never be bored)! 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).
