CC3C #29


Welcome back for another Compendium of Curiosities Challenge! 
Here we are on challenge #29...can you believe it? 
We are well into a year of challenges and I can tell you that these challenges have pushed me, made me try things and definitely challenged me at times, hehehe. 
I hope you will join us and play along. 
Just make sure to follow the rules laid out here for you...they are really easy peasy! 
It certainly has been an amazing journey that I am thankful for and thankful for the people that it has brought into my life! 

As always let's take care of housekeeping, shall we?
A HUGE thank you to our sponsors....
Inspiration Emporium has donated a very generous gift certificate and of course Tim and Mario who donated a HUGE assortment of goodies to be given away throughout the challenge! 
I hope you have a copy of the book by now, but if you don't you can still order it from Tim and Mario and it will even be a signed copy! Heck yeah! 

Okay...so today's challenge can be found on page 44 of Compendium of Curiosities Vol. III.
It is called Eroded Metallic...oh do I love this one. 
I have actually never done it before making the piece for this challenge, but I think I fell in love, wink.

 I used a 5 x 7 canvas as my background. 
Applied said technique to three tags and then cut them to size. 
I also tried the technique on Tim's Butterfly Die...I LOVE it. 
It is whimsy and fun. It was really hard to photograph and get the honest to goodness feel of it, but let's just say I did a very awkward happy dance with a hurt back, lol.  Not a good thing hehehe. 

 Added some embellishments and a sentiment and there you have it. 
I chose some of Tim's chit chat to put on the left side of the canvas that I thought went along with the sentiment. 
Trust and Soar ticket stubs because I just love them, wink. 
The corked vial is filled with gold glitter.  Just to add a little sparkle. hehehe. 

Okay...I'm off to check out what the rest of the Curiosity Crew has been up to. 
I hope you will make your way around...and make sure and check out what your fellow challengers are up to as well! It is amazing to see the same technique always so different and diverse! 
Have a great week! HUGS...and no awkward happy dancing for you, wink.

When I think of Yvonne, I think of some of your signatures like butterflies and PINK!!! but more than anything, I think hopeful and inspirational. Today, you did not disappoint. Love you. <3

  28. Wow, the butterfly turned out really cool! This was the first time I tried this, too; there was definitely a bit of a learning curve, but well worth it to keep at it. Of course, one can never have too much glitter, am I right? You did a lovely job with this technique.

  40. I am NOT gonna play "favies" here...but I have to say that out of all the projects used from the Team...YOUR choices of embelishments and color of them, makes the Eroded Metal stand out the most. I surprised myself thinking this, cause yours had the theme I usually like the least: butterflies. One thing I DO love about those butterflies is when paired w the glass tube vial - filled w something pretty- is gaining popularity on me. ✌️😎
