Hope you are enjoying the last weekend of summer. It's almost fall time. Nights and mornings are getting cooler and next thing you know the leaves will be changing. Soon it will be Halloween. Creating Halloween and fall projects are some of my favorites. I decided on a Halloween theme for Challenge 11. The lovely Linda Ledbetter is hosting these challenges based on Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities, volume 3. This challenge is all about the effects powders, Tim's special Distress Embossing Powders. If you are playing along you can find this technique on page 52.
I recently picked up an oldie, but goodie Sizzix Alterations die. It's the Rickety House which is perfect for spooky, creepy, or just fun Halloween projects. I created a box featuring the house which would be great to keep your favorite Halloween treats.
This one came together pretty quickly with supplies I had on hand. Think I'll be making more of these boxes. Thanks for the box design by Jim, The Gentleman Crafter. He has a great YouTube video in which hope walks you through the steps of construction.
This CC3 Challenge 11 is sponsored by the Inspiration Emporium. One lucky winner will get a $50 gift certificate from them. The Curiosity Crew's Choice will get a bunch of Tim goodies courtesy of Tim and Mario.
Please be sure to stop by Linda's Blog to see what the Curiosity Crew inspired us with. While you are there be sure to also check out what all the other contributors have created as well. Thanks to Linda and the crew and all of you who submit your works to the challenges for all the inspiration.
