This series of challenges, based on the contents of Tim Holtz's book, Compendium of Curiosities, VOl. 3, is hosted by Linda Ledbetter from her blog Studio L3, and she is assisted in this challenge by a design team of eight talented artists, two stores and the team of Tim Holtz and Mario Rossi II. Linda and the design team put together their interpretations of the bi-weekly challenges, the stores offer gift certificates for winners in alternating weeks (challenge #32 challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique) and Tim and Mario have donated a cache of goodies form which another prize is assembled.
The rules are simple:
• One must work from the book and not reveal Tim's techniques (If you don't have the book, you can get one, autographed, from Tim)
• You need to link your creation to Linda's blog
• You need to visit the design team's blogs and leave comments on their interpretations.
This week’s challenge is to implement the technique described on Page 59 of the book: “Frosted Film”. I had never used the products specified in this technique and, in fact, had to order some of them, but they came in time and I played around with the technique. My first attempt was just satisfactory (Using Tattered Leaves 656927, and Archival Inks “Leaf Green”, “Fern Green”, “Aquamarine” and “Chrome Yellow”). I went with spring colors as I wasn’t in the mood for Autumn yet again and it still doesn’t feel like Summer has arrived!
