Hey guys! I can hardly believe we’re already up the the 30th challenge in this journey through Tim Holtz’s A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 3! This time, we’re rocking the Faux Cracked Glass techniques, one of my all-time favorites. When you learn how easy it is to give cheap-o glass a cool, vintage look, you’ll be saving every bottle you can get your hands on!
Open up your copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3 to page 54 for the instructions, and remember, no sharing them on your blog. This challenge is for those who have supported Tim by purchasing his book. 🙂
Win a Special Prize from Tim and Mario
After the challenge closes, we’ll select a “Curiosity Crew’s Choice” winner who will receive a goody box of Tim’s products, courtesy of Tim himself and Mario Rossi, his awesome Logistics Director (follow Mario on Instagram for sneak peeks of Tim’s latest projects)! 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 30, and sweet Linda Coughlin, the Funkie Junkie herself, has a fabulous $25 shopping spree for one very lucky CC3Cer! For a chance to win, be sure to link to The Funkie Junkie Boutique in your blog post!

Important Stuff to Know
This challenge is intended specifically for those who’ve invested in their own copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 3. We don’t post instructions to the techniques for this reason. If you don’t have a copy, you can order one directly from Tim, who will be glad to autograph it for you! We’re deeply grateful to Tim and Mario for the prizes they’ve provided, and to our alternating sponsors, Inspiration Emporium and The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Their generous support is so appreciated! To that end, entries that promote other businesses will not be eligible to win the sponsor prize OR the Curiosity Crew’s Choice. If you have any questions about the challenge in general, check out the CC3C F.A.Q. here.
And… We’re Off!
This challenge is open through Friday, June 19, and we’re so excited to see your creativity go wild. Faux Crack that glass, y’all!
