Compendium of Curiosities III ChallengeI am participating in the Compendium of Curiosities III Challenge on the Studio L3 blog by Linda Ledbetter. Challenge 7 focuses on the painted industrial technique found on page 46 of Compendium of Curiosities 3 by Tim Holtz. Challenge 7 is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium, with more prizes courtesy of Mario Rossi and Tim Holtz!
I received one of these prize packages for challenge 2, and it was awesome!!! There were all types of items, some dies, distress ink, embellishments, etc. It was quite an excellent prize package! Thanks!
I have been learning a lot participating in all of the challenges so far.
I love the painted industrial technique but it takes a little practice to get it figured out! I took some time to practice when I took the Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 102 course! It was messy and fun!
Fancy mini-blending tool art doll!So I decided to make an Industrial Distress Dolly. She also doubles as a fancy mini-blending tool! I will use her for my fancy metallic blending needs. I created the dolly first, then by accident I noticed her base was the same size as a ranger mini-blending foam so I incorporated it into the dolly. So she turned out to be a dolly-tool-widget.
Tattered Floral DressHer skirt and dress are pieces of the tattered floral die. Her heads...not sure why I gave her 4 heads, I guess so I could see her face from any angle...anyway her heads are from a Maureen Carlson clay mold. I baked the clay right on the wooden ball which is her head. After they were cool, I took them off and glued them on with glossy accents.
Industrial silver and fingernail jewelsI used all kinds of silver paint. I also used some tiny fingernail jewels I had left-over from some tiny snowmen on tiny bottles I made last winter. I used the fingernail jewels for the snowman eyes, and smile.
I love the painted industrial technique!!!
Thanks!Thanks to all who have posted comments on my blog and who have been so encouraging as I work on my CC3C projects. You are all such a creative inspiration to me and your projects lift me up!
