This week at Linda's Compendium of Curiosities challenge the technique is extreme masking. This tag is my 4th or 5th attempt, and while I didn't find the technique difficult per se, I wasn't all that pleased with my efforts because they looked rather.....oh, shall I say.....messy. I suppose this technique may not be my thing, hence adding the stamped "embrace imperfection"!
On a side note, and fitting so well with Compendium of Curiosities, I spent this past weekend at Absolutely Everything, a fun stamping/scrapbooking/crafting store in MA, taking 2 classes from the fabulous Tim Holtz himself! You can see pictures of the class on Tim's blog post (HERE). Wow what fun!!! Talk about an amazing teacher who is so willing to share what he knows. I came away with lots of different techniques to play with and made 2 fantastic projects - a dimensional canvas and a grungeboard mini book.
And.....I got an autograph in my Compendium of Curiosities book! Do you see all the green post-it notes sticking out of the book? Those are all the challenges we've done so far - such a wonderful way to work through this awesome book, and thanks Linda for running the challenges! :-)
