Happy and beautiful December, crafty friends, and welcome to the 17th installment of the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge, based on the latest book by the one and only Tim Holtz!
I very specifically chose this technique for this week, because it so naturally lends itself to holiday-themed pieces. The Curiosity Crew and I certainly took it in that direction, as you’ll see below. However, going Christmas-y isn’t a requirement for the Woodlands and Tinsel Twine challenge– simply use either or both of these items, and let your imagination take you where it will! Check out page 60 in your copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3, for Tim’s introduction, then go play!
Bring on Your Brilliance!
Everyone is welcome to participate in the CC3C, but you must work from your personal copy of the CC3. If you don’t have a copy, you can order one directly from Tim, who will be glad to autograph it for you. While we don’t have a lot of rules, one we take very seriously is our requirement to not share the challenge technique on your blog. We want our participants to support Tim by purchasing the CC3, which is a book all crafters will want in their collection, anyway, because it’s fabulous!
If you have any questions about the challenge requirements, please check out the CC3C F.A.Q. here.
