More Tim Holtz in CCC #3

I had so much fun with this challenge! It was messy, inky with oh so cool results! You can find the details in Tim's book, "A Compendium of Curiosities" on page 51. To join in on the challenges's click on the link and visit Linda's blog.

I'm not sure if you can tell from this picture, but I used Tim's Texture Hammer on the corner brads. I've wanted one of those hammer's since I first saw them in his book and yesterday Michael's had them on clearance for $6.99! What a deal!

I was able to incorporate this weeks challenge into the book I am making by using it on the cover of a little Field Journal I stitched into the back of the file folder. (See last post for the cover.)

The pages are actually kraft wrapping paper that I found at Michael's. It's not as heavy as a roll of kraft shipping paper, a perfect weight for journaling or even adding photos or other embellishments. (I have the pages clipped together as they still want to roll up!)

Just so you can see the spine of the original folder where I stitched in the little journal. Now, to work on Claudine's class at BPS and hopefully be all set for tomorrow's challenge!

Thank you, Linda, for hosting, I'm having such fun!

Happy 4th of July!

Terri, what a great project! I'm always in awe of people who use stitching in their multi-media work, being the sewing-phobic I am!

Your alcohol ink monoprint is gorgeous-- those honey colors with that sweet stamp are perfect!

I'm glad you got your Texture hammer, and at such a good deal. That thing is so much fun, and I find myself using mine for all kinds of distressing. Wait till you try it on metal-- it's completely addictive.

I'm so happy you joined in this week, and I hope you'll be back for the new challenge tomorrow. Meanwhile, I'll see you have at Claudine's Class!

How strange that today I happen to click on your blog for the first time in months, and there's a post! And, not any ol' post but a REALLY COOL PROJECT post!

Awesome work Terri, as always!

Your monoprint turned out beautiful!

I also love how you incorporated your challenge into a current project.

I am completing each challenge as well but do not have a blog for me to share my end projects.

PS. I really like your beehive stamp..would you mind sharing your source? I am an avid gardener who admires bees and the benefits they provide to my garden.

Wow, this is really gorgeous. Looks like beeswax! (Did you do that on purpose?) I tried a brown/yellow combo, too, but it didn't turn out nearly so awesome.
