Over on  Studio L3,  Linda Ledbetter and her wonderful crew (do go and check them out) are sharing their masterpieces for the forth challenge of The Compendium of Curiosities Vol 3 Challenge (CC3), from Tim Holtz's latest publication.
The challenge this time is Layering Stencil techniques -Texture Paste, which can be found  on page 49. 
I used the stripes Layering stencil and texture paste.
In respect to Tim please don't ask for the technique used; you need to get your own copy!  
Tim and Mario have sent Linda, prizes for the challenges, those guys are the best!
All even numbered challenges are  are sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

I've used the Hot Air Balloon from remnants and the minis plates, using a selection of distress inks, crushed olive, mustard seed, festive berries, broken china, ripe persimmon, seedless preserves, frayed burlap, scattered straw to colour the balloons; and  broken china and salt ocean for the sky. 
Please go over to Linda's Blog to find out how you can join in the fun.

Until next time

Life Book week 10

 This is my take on week 10. 
The on this picture the face looks like it's lifting but in real life that's not the case. 
Next time I'll cut around where I want the new hairline to be then it won't look so odd in a photo. 
This is how I started the picture above.

Thanks Tam, great Lesson.

12 Tags of 2014, June

Here's my take on Tim Holtz's June Tag.
I've got the new French Flight Framelets die set on pre-order  but they're not due in until July, so I've used the original butterfly set.
I love how well the distress inks have blended on this piece.
I've used nearly every shade of green and blue, plus picked raspberry, spiced marmalade and mustard seed.

Sorry I've been absent for so long. 
I've been away on holiday and as soon as I returned I had to have another dreaded steroid injection into the base of my thumb which again has had no positive outcome, more grief and no relief.

I'm now behind on so many different project but hoping to catch up soon.
Thanks for looking,
