This week's Compendium of Curiosities 2 challenge can be found on page 38 of Tim's second book. It is called Tissue Wrap Collage, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I have. As an added bonus, The Funkie Junkie's Boutique is the sponsor, so there is a chance of winning a gift certificate. Just sayin'.
When Linda announced the challenge I already had an (unexecuted) idea for the current Make Art! challenge on the Wendy Vecchi yahoo group, so I used the tissue wrap technique for my background and some Wendy stamps for the rest. The challenge there was to make a tag and include a house.
So, here is my tag, ready to go out to the next person I know who is moving to a new home.
Tim's Branch Tree die (cut from grungeboard) is what I used for the tissue wrap collage. With a little snipping, I transformed Wendy's Art Market stamp (from the Destination Art set) into a pickup truck, hauling a house (which is also a Wendy stamp (from the Homemade Art set), also edited somewhat. Both pieces were stamped with archival black ink on scraps of manila tag, and colored with distress markers.
