Compendium of Curiosities Volume II

Today was all about playtime.

So it is the second week of challenges from Linda at Studio L3. To participate in CC2C #2, and to be eligible to win Angie's Tim Holtz Messenger Bag, create your own work of art using the Faux Patina technique on page 58, and link it to Studio L3 Blog using the InLinkz button at the bottom of her page. You're in the running as long as you honor these simple rules:

Follow the technique as it's written in A Compendium of Curiosities 2 on page 58 (adding your own special flair, of course!), and clearly state that the technique comes from Tim's book.

Include a link to Studio L3 in your blog post (or photo description if you're linking from an online photo-sharing site)

Out of respect to Tim, please don't post the technique instructions on your blog! Any entries that don't follow this rule will be unlinked.

if you need a book, Tim has them on his site. That said, I had a wonderful time creating elements from Tim's technique.

A variety of color trials

Using new Sizzix Embossing folders
Dragonfly on paperclay
Embossing powder on leaf

Love this technique

I hope you had a playtime this weekend.

Very beautiful pieces! I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite. I have only dappled in jewelry making since I purchased the first round of Vintaj embossing folders. I have the second set on order along with the patinas. Your pieces have inspired me.

Thanks Michelle. Nice to here from someone in a neighboring state. I love your inspiring work too.

Spectacular work, Peg! I feel like I'm looking at the blog for a high-end boutique. You really did a fantastic job with the Faux Patina-- your post is like a candy store for grown ups!!! Thanks so much for joining the challenge (and inspiring me to make a LOT more jewerlry!).
