Hi all! I've been a bit scarce here lately but I'm back to share my entry for CC3's 19th challenge.
I have a confession, I wanted to throw the towel in and give up on this one. Why? Two words-sewing machine. I had to keep telling myself to "keep calm, no matter what" and just get it done. Sewing is not my thing and never will be lol. But for Tim Holtz I now have made an exception, twice. ;) If you'd like to challenge yourself with Tim's techniques in his third Compendium of Curiosities book click here to get your autographed copy.
Here are a few close ups...
I created two shadowboxes for my DH filled with mementos of his beloved uncle and aunt.
This photo is his uncle and younger brother shortly after their arrival in America.
This is the second shadowbox and includes photos of them throughout their marriage. They traveled to Italy several times to visit family in Pisa, Italy.
Memories throughout the years...
You can't read what's on the Idea-ology heart charm but it says "life journey." They definitely enjoyed a wonderful life journey together.
For my frayed fabric pieces I used Tim's eclectic elements 6x6 fabric pack-Melange- and his handy dandy craft scratcher wire brush tool. Idea-ology metal products as well as Tim's paperie were used to create my shadowboxes.
The Inspiration Emporium is sponsoring this challenge and offering the lucky winner a wonderful prize.
That's all for me today, thanks for dropping by.
Have a wonderful weekend!
