CCC #34


So this was week 34 of the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge... we are almost finished with the book.  This weeks challenge is from page 63 and is called Dimensional Collage Fragments.  All the details can be found on Linda's blog.  Linda used a large fragment square and then over on Alison's blog, she also used a large square but said she put cork on the back to make it a coaster which I thought was a WAY cool idea and decided I wanted to make a coaster also, so I did.  The fragment is 3 3/4" square.  I started with old sheet music and used gesso in the area I wanted to stamp the words so they would show up better.  Did more stamping around the edges with Adirondack pigment ink juniper and also Archival ink olive.. film strip ribbon along the bottom and the flowers, bird, and butterflies are victorian scrap. All stamps are Tim Holtz.  Red Glaze pen to color in letters and make the red dots on the edges.  I really like it!!!!!  However, silly me, after it was finished, I remembered I was making all tags so I could put them all up on my wall, lolol... So I'll probably make another collage and use it on a tag, but not today... Yes, it's ok to laugh at me!!

What a clever way to use the larger fragments! I need the bright & cheeriness this coaster brings...gray and grayer skies.
