Well, January is winding down– rapidly!– and it’s time for the 21st installment of the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge, based on the latest book by Tim Holtz. Whether you’ve been with us from the beginning or are just jumping on this train, welcome!
This time around, we’re playing with a very specific method of using Tim’s beautiful Rock Candy Distress Glitter, which you’ll find on page 55 in your copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3. If you’re glitter-phobic, don’t despair– Tim’s glitter isn’t the static-y, sticks-to-everything stuff we usually think of. It’s weightier, like true vintage glass glitter, and it has a beautiful, subtle sparkle. If you haven’t tried it, you’re in for a treat!
Our Simple Rules
Everyone is welcome to participate in the CC3C, but you must work from your personal copy of the CC3. If you don’t have the book, 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 his book!
If you have any questions about the challenge requirements, please check out the CC3C F.A.Q. here.
Get The GOODIES!
As always, we’ll select a “Curiosity Crew’s Choice” winner who will receive an awesome assortment Tim’s products, courtesy of Tim himself and Mario Rossi, his Logistic Director and everyone’s favorite “Behind the Scenes” social media rockstar (be sure to follow Mario on Instagram for tons of insider info!).
To be eligible to win this special prize, 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).
