Compendium Of Curiosities Challenge 6

 Welcome back for Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 6! 
This has truly been a dream to do these challenges with the Curiosity Crew! 
I love working with these girls...they are all so talented and I absolutely love to see what each of us has done on Saturday morning along with the rest of you! It amazes me how diverse of a group we are. 
This weeks challenge is from Tim's CCIII book page 37 Altered Burlap Panel.
I actually altered one of Tim's Christmas Burlap Panels. 
I used a piece of paper from the Wallflower pad to cover the Christmas theme. 
If you would like to see Tim's recommended techniques check out page 37. 
 So as you can see I used a little of this and a little of that to alter my burlap panel. 
I am really loving the Broken China with a little bit of Salty Ocean thrown in, oh and of course Gathered Twigs.  I don't think I can ink without that color right now.  
It is my go to color! 
 I painted the "three" and the "3" with Broken China Distress Paint and sanded it lightly. 
As well as colored my Crinkle Ribbon with Broken China Distress Stain. 
Three is my number.  I have always been drawn to it so I use it a lot in my art. 
What is your favorite number??? 

I would also like to thank Tim and Mario for being so generous with the fabulous boxes of prizes they donated.  They are the best, wink.  If you haven't gotten your book you can still get one here.  We would love for you to join in the challenges! 

I would also like to thank our generous sponsor Funkie Junkie. 

To be entered for any of the prizes please remember to leave a comment on each of the Curiosity Crew's blogs and enter your challenge piece on the CC3Challenge blog.  Make sure to follow all the rules. You can read them on the CC3Challenge blog. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, I enjoy reading each and every one!!!
So what are you waiting for...go get inky or painty, wink.  
Have a great week!
