Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #32

I participated in a challene at Studio L3 using my Tim Holtz book Compendium of Curiosities, page 59. I am so glad I did, I love what I made!
Since the technique I used came from the book, I can not go into detail. But, I can tell you that used my mask flower as part of the finished result, this was an awesome technique and I wanted to use every part of it.

I did use Glimmer Mists, chaulk ink, walnut ink, Glimmer Glam, a rhinestone, strings from my fiber stash and beads from my bead box. Below is the tag on my wood table. I wanted to show you this because of how different it looks on another background and at a different angle, cool!

Feel free to visit Studio L3 and participate in the challenge. You will need to have Tim Holtz's book, Compendium of Curiosities available!


  1. What a beautiful tag. And how smart to use the mask itself... great idea!
