When I say it has been awhile since I have posted, it’s been awhile! Four years…. A lot has happened in that time – a house fire, having a new home built, acquired two new Chihuahuas and soon to be empty nesters. But that is a post for another time.
I heard about this Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 3 from following Tim Holtz on Instagram. New challenges will be posted every two weeks. This first challenge is called paint marbling and it is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium. I needed to make something for our oldest son’s birthday. This depicts Charlie so well. He loves photography and is going to school for illustration and design.
I began with using Tumbled Glass, Bundled Sage and Spiced Marmalade for the marbling. I sponged Vintage Photo around the outer edge of the tag. Stamps and embellishments are by Tim Holtz as well. I must admit, that I put the tag into a card by Blue Mountain Arts that brought tears to my eyes when it spoke about the bond between a Mother and her son!
I can’t wait to see all the other creations by those participating. I love picking up new tips as I read through their blogs.
