CC Challenge #6 - Multi-Medium Collage P. 66

Hello Everyone,

I finally have my tag finished for the latest A Compendium of Curiosities challenge.  Not last minute as normal with me, actually a day early!!  Miracles never cease do they.  I really like how this turned out.  I used paper from Tim's Retro Grunge paper stack.  Love it! Also used one of his Alterations dies Heart Wings.  I cut them out using Grunge board.  Also used his Admit One die and a couple of stamps from his 100th Anniversary collection.  A little tip for you.  If you take a scissors to the paper and work it like you would do to curl a ribbon, the paper gets soft and you can peel it apart.  I used Claudine's Multi-Medium for adding the paper to the tag and the heart.  Also used it to add glitter to the wings and the crown.  Works wonderful!  Let me know what you think of my tag this week.

Happy Creating,

Class @home with Claudine

Hello everyone,

I am taking a class @Home with Claudine Hellmuth. It is a Big PictureScrapbooking. I am having a great time trying out Claudine's techniques.  I have not been able to complete the projects yet but those will be coming soon.  Here are the pages I have done so far. 

CC Challenge #5 - Distress Powder Page 43

This is my tag for week #5.  I do not have many distress powders...yet!  I like it.  It is very different from your normal embossing powders.  This is not shinny at all and has wonderful texture to it.  Not smooth like other embossing powders.  Very cool.  I also used some of Tim's new it!
