Compendium of Curiosities #28

This week for Linda's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge the technique is Colorful Layered Fragments. I used the large square fragment from the package and a heart collage stamp from Stampington & Co. and created this romantic Valentine collage in kind of a shabby chic style. I suppose when you think of Tim Holtz techniques, you don't think of soft looking feminine results, but I think that's what is truly great about his techniques - you can take what you've learned and go in a different direction. This is most definitely a "me" project, don't you think?

After I saw how pretty yours was, I didn't even want to do this challenge! I'm never good at incorporating the Fragments into my art. Yours is absolutely stunning.

Wow, Penny, this is stunning! You have such a great talent for layering, and this is a prime example of your talent in that arena. All the little details are perfect, and the Fragment looks sensational!

I'm with you-- these techniques are all about putting your own style and spirit into the mix, and you've done that beautifully!
