I am really pumped about doing this challenge from Linda Ledbetter and crew. I love getting all messy and digging through my supplies to see what I can use to create a piece to meet a challenge. The photo was the first thing that spoke to me. Everything else plays off that focal piece.
Challenge 6 introduces Tim’s Altered Burlap Panel Technique, which you’ll find on page 37 of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. #3 (a.k.a “CC3″). I had all kinds of fun with this one, because I was able to get grungy and make it my own: Incorporate memorabilia that’s meaningful to you. I found an old photo of my aunt and uncle in wedding attire. I just wanted to incorporate that photo into my canvas. Please do note that you must use one of Tim’s Burlap Panels in your project in order to link to this challenge. I used a District Market burlap 12X12 canvas.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the CC3C, but you must work from your personal copy of the CC3. We will not be posting technique instructions on our blogs. This out of respect and appreciation for all the work Tim invested in writing the book. If you don’t have a copy, you can order one directly from Tim, who will be glad to autograph it for you! If you have any questions about the challenge in general, check out the CC3C F.A.Q. here.

So I will show you some close up photos of my canvas in different stages of completion. I was able to use some Art Parts and embossing paste from Wendy Vecchi. I absolutely can not say enough about the quality of these products. I was also very happy to find the District Market canvas has a solid backing so you can easily attach things to the canvas without sagging. It was still easy to punch through the panel with an awl to attach brads.

I was also able to use one of Tim's new stencils with the embossing paste. Love it!

So I hope you have Tim's book and can see how great his step by step walks you through the process.
Here is my finished piece. I hope you enjoyed seeing what I did. Be sure to go check out the crew and see all the talented artists creations.
