I hope you are all enjoying the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge III.
I know I am LOVING it!
Each time I get to create something I just get giddy.
It is so fun to be given a challenge and then just create.
Just follow my heart and see where it takes me.
I am learning so much on this journey too.
To try things I might not have normally tried.
To be patient with myself.
To follow something through even though I might think it's not working.
I know, I am rambling, wink. On to the challenge....
This week in is Painted Industrial which can be found on page 46 in Tim's Compendium of Curiosities III.
You can definitely still get it here if you don't have it yet.
I have all three and use them all the time!
SO....I had never tried this technique before!
Well...I have found a new love. I absolutely LOVE what you can do with this technique.
I will be using this many many more times for sure.
The base is a frame I picked up at Ikea. It is to fit a 4 x 6 picture.
I like it because it had a deep back.
I cut black chipboard in strips to fit inside the frame to hold the glass at the front so it would create a shadow box. After using the Painted Industrial technique I put the pieces of the shadow box together.
First creating the inside piece with the Painted Industrial Butterfly and then attaching that to the back part of the frame, then applying all the Painted Industrial parts to all the sides of the frame.
Here are a couple more views. I did manage to get my butterfly in as well as my lucky #3!
I thought this ideaology band had the perfect quote to convey what I wanted to with this piece.
