The Compendium of Curiosities Challenge - Week Seven




Week 7 already!  If you need more information, click on the title above, and you'll be taken to Linda's blog and all the details.

This week we're told to turn to page 55 in Tim's book and work on the technique called "tinted vision fragments."  Had fun doing that this morning, and have a few finished fragments for future projects, and one completed tag.

As usual, no specifics on the technique (sorry, you just have to get the book....and you'll be happy you did anyway, so why am I apologizing?), but I will tell you what I did on the tag.

The background is a piece of paper from Tim's Retro Grunge stack, and I embossed it with a Ten Seconds Studio plate.

The tinted fragment is glued to a clock face image from Tim's circus set.  Oh, and under the fragment is a bit from a stamp in the mini muse collection.

The words are rub ons I've had forever and have no idea where they came from.  I tucked some black netting behind the clock face and finished it all off with some satin ribbon.

I'm not sure if we can share the colors we used on the fragment, so I won't....well, truth be told, I used many, and don't remember which anyway.

Jump in on this one....in addition to the chance to win something from Gloria at ATT, great prizes are also given away from Linda's blog....and this week the prize package comes from Arizona.  Can you guess who sent a big box of goodies for Linda to dole out to some lucky winners?

Love this one, the background is a TSS mold, huh? I need to remember to use those more, except I can never remember the sandwich to run it thru, and I NEVER remember to write it down. Even if I did, wouldn't be able to find it when I need it... Great tag!

Love it!

Linda Ledbetter said...

Eyeleeeen! You're amazing, girlfriend! Another spectacular tag, and I haven't even finished my coffee this morning!

You have the most ingenious way of combining great elements in a way that the sum of the parts is somehow even greater. This is no exception-- everything about it is fab! The colors, the embossing, the stamps... everything! And the Fragment ROCKS!

Bravo, gf!

Hello Eileen,

nice tag : I like it all !
The green embossed background : nice embossing folder !
I really like how you put the fragment on the clock and put the clock a bit off center.
My eye is immediately drawn to the fragment.

Really nice
greetings from Belgium
