Happy August! Holy rockets, can you believe it’s already the eighth month of 2014? It’s, um… 144 days until Christmas, in case you were wondering. Please don’t throw things at me…
Right now, though, it’s time for Challenge #8 in our journey through the latest book by the inimitable Tim Holtz. The Curiosity Crew and I got our grunge on with Tim’s Faded Layers technique, and we hope you’ll join us! Go grab your copy of the A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3, turn to page 58, and show us your stuff! As you’ll see from The Crew’s samples below, you can take this fun technique in all kinds of different (and awesome) directions.
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.
Win! Win! Win!
As always, we’ll select a “Curiosity Crew’s Choice” winner who will receive a fabulous assortment 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).
The Funkie Junkie Boutique is back to sponsor Challenge 6, and lovely owner Linda Coughlin has $25 shopping spree to one very lucky CC3Cer– just in time for those amazing new summer products that are hitting the market! For a chance to win, link your project here and link to The Funkie Junkie Boutique in your blog post!
Now, here’s how we used the Faded Layers technique in our own projects:
There you have it!
Have a great couple of weeks, and have fun with this challenge. And, if you took part in Challenge 7, remember to check back here next Saturday to see if you’re a winner.
