Whew! Getting my project posted just before the deadline!
This challenge is all about the colored crackle. You can find all the steps in Tim Holtz' latest book A Compendium of Curiosities 3 on page 53. This amazingly fun challenge is hosted by Linda Ledbetter. You can hop on over to her blog to see what she and the Curiosity Crew have created for this challenge.
I love fall! All the rich colors of the changing leaves are so inspiring. I'm still having fun with the Tim Holtz Layered Leaf die. For challenge 14 I created a fall gratitude canvas. Hope you enjoy it.
The background was created with the Thanksgiving Background texture fade on Wallflower paper. It's a nice compliment to the leaves and greenery. The heart charm adds a bit of metal and movement.
Here is a closer view of some of that yummy colored crackle. I used Core'dinations cardstock for the small leaves, branches and acorns from the Autumn Gathering Decorative Strip.
Yes, those are real acorns! I happened upon them in an apartment complex parking lot and gathered them up knowing I would find some way to use them this fall. I dyed some seam binding with Distress Inks to add a bit of softness. It turned out to be the perfect place to hang the heart charm.
This fall canvas is a wonderful way to celebrate the season. All the colors and textures make me happy.
A big thank you to Linda and the Curiosity Crew for the continued inspiration. As always the Curiosity Crews Choice winner will get some cool things from Tim and Mario. Another lucky winner will get a $25 gift certificate from The Funkie Junkie who is sponsoring this challenge.
Thank You so much for stopping by. Hope you like what I created for this challenge.
