Compendium of Curiosity 3, Challenge 26
----------------------------------------------------

Hello to all! 
I am sooooooooooo excited to be typing this today... my first time to participate in Linda's Compedium of Curiosity challenge. 

These two of the letters were done with the smudge stamping technique as part of a larger project.  The large letters are from Tim's Worn Text Stamps CMS156.








I am so excited to finally have my copy of Tim's third book. I can't stop reading it - every night in my chair - over and over - so amazing!  if you don't have a copy - you NEED it.  The link is below.



Because I didn't have the book, I watched the challenges and learned but was never able to participate until now.  And it was soooo much fun doing these letters.  I will tell you though - I did the "Y" over twice - it's not as easy as you think to master. I still need lots more practice but will totally enjoy using this technique over and over. 

The challenge is listed below: 

The Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities 3, Smudge Stamping at cc3challenge.com. 


Because I did the letters as a part of a larger project...

I realize that I cannot compete because my letters aren't a complete project. I didn't realize it at the time of working on this that they couldn't be combined with others.  And that's understandable - totally.  I will do better next time!!   However, because I was so excited to get to participate for the first time... I went ahead and did it!!!   Sure hope Linda and the design team can overlook my inexperience.  

You can perhaps also so that there are more of Tim's products in the completed project.  Such as:

Rub Ons
Stickers
Letters
Embellishment
Paper from Paper Pad
Ephemera
Embossing Powder
Ink
Distress Paint
Adhesive Metal Sheet











One thing for sure... the name Tim Holtz is a regular household word now and I am in awe of all the Compendium of Curiosities that Tim's "world" entails!  AMAZINGLY Wonderful!


Until the next time... which hopefully will be soon!!! joi
