Curiously Shattered...

...yipyah and thrice, tis time for the Compendium of Curiosities II challenge again and this week our lovely host Linda Ledbetter has pointed us towards Page 48 of the Book of Amazingness by Tim Holtz... Check out Linda's blog and deets on how to join in HERE and Tim's website HERE. oh and ...the challenge is sponsored this week by Simon Says Stamp... prizes... yay!!




So. In keeping with the rest of the weeks I have already entered, I have made another tag. I have to say, when the very first challenge started, I had this idea to make tags and then display them on the wall in the Room of Stash.... well, ahem, 37 tags is a very lot of space, so they are on book rings for reference... now I am doing the same again, I will have a veritable forest of tags by the end lol My entry is also my DT piece for The Stamp Attic this week and all the proper deets on what I used are HERE. And, being as it is a challenge piece, I haven't gone into great detail on the "how to" so you can have a play along yourselves using the book.


Here's a piccie of the tag before I decorated it... I love spreading Rock Candy over a mask or stencil... it gives such a fabby crazed look to projects...




I am doing speed blogging today... I have a to-do list that is longer than a fox's tail and it seems that time is whizzing past ever so fastly this week already! Now, you know how much I love to natter away on my blog posts (ok, all the time, not just on blog posts lol) but alas, I must away, there's a big pile of Grungepaper that is crying out to get inked. Thanks for looking... TTFN!

I wish someone would tie your hands together for a minute 'cos I can't keep up with all this gorgeousness you keep making. Stop it, you are far too good.

Your always-gorgeous work never fails to inspire, Hels! This is wonderful-- the shattered stains, and every other detail.

The little roses look like candy that I'd like to eat. :-)
