I'm back with an entry for the the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge which is hosted by Linda Ledbetter. This is the 7th challenge and it follows the techniques taught by Tim Holtz in his latest Compendium of Curiosities III book. You can visit Tim's blog here and get your own autographed copy if you'd like to join in. It's never too late!
This technique-Painted Industrial-can be found on pg. 46 and it's fabulous for creating a metal look on your projects. The bonus is that it's effortless to do and can be used in so many ways.
Here are a few close ups.
I used mine as a bookplate of sorts. The ephemera is from G45's Typography collection and Studio g alphas were used to spell out my name.
Love how it looks like real metal. :)

I'll use this notebook for creative writing, typography and practicing new fonts for journaling. I used papers from Jenni Bowlin's Red and Black collection to cover, ephemera from G45's Typography collection and washi tape by Tim Holtz and Prima.
This challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium.
Wow, what a fabulous prize!
They are also offering participants an online discount and you'll find the code on Linda's blog.
Thanks for looking! Have a fantastic day, wherever you are!!
