Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #20


This weeks challenge is Industrial Grunge, found on page 54 of Tim's book.  As usual see Linda's blog for all the details of the challenge.  Here I've used Tim's flourish and bird dies, his Ray texture fade embossing folder, and some Ideology pieces (snaps, word stick, and philosophy tag).  The paper flowers are from Prima.  Ranger's black enamel accents for the dots in the small flowers.  Distress ink colors on the background are worn lipstick, tea dye, and vintage photo.

Hi Wanda --
I'm a great admirer of your work, and this tag is absolutely no exception -- I just love it! Have stared and stared at the birdie, and am wondering how you got the texture into him?! Don't know if you respond to comments, but if possible . . . .
Thanks for showing us such wonderful projects consistently.
Greetings from Sally in France

Fantastic piece Wanda. Love the colors and using that ray in the background was perfect.

Linda Ledbetter said...

Wanda, you did a fantastic job on the Industrial Grunge! In fact, this entire piece is absolutely gorgeous! You combined so many perfectly-created elements into something really special. I love how you applied to technique to the little bird, and the metal charms and sweet flowers accent it beautifully. And isn't that Rays texture fade the COOLEST??

Bravo on this!

All the elements and colors are perfect. I love it!

Sally, I would love to tell you how the birdie got like that... but, that is the featured technique for this challenge and the rules say we can't explain it on our blogs... If you have Tim's book, it is on page 54. Thanks so much for looking and commenting!!!!

very nice. The rays folder in that direction work so well. Must admit it's a folder I haven't explored yet. But you do great work with it.
