Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 24

Hello!  I'm so happy to be playing along with this challenge. CC3 challenge 24 is all about the Remnant Rub Resist.  You can play along too from your own copy of Compendium of Curiosities volume III on page 51.   All of the information and inspiration for CC3C can be found at Linda Ledbetters blog here.

I'm starting a new art journal using one of the Dylusions small journals from Ranger.  It is going to be the perfect place for me to record the new healthy living journey my husband and I are taking.   Plus it will be great fun to practice my backgrounds and journal pages.  We are focusing on heart healthy foods and exercises so I wanted a place to keep recipies, suggestions and inspiration. The Mediterranean diet is one area we are exploring so I'm going to keep the main colors in blue, greens, and white. 

I used the Remant Rub Resist on the inside cover.  What a fun technique!  Quick and easy too. 

Love the blues and greens with the pop of white. This will provide inspiration every time I open the book.

As with every challenge Linda and the oh so inspirational curiosity crew will select a winner who will receive a bunch of Tim Holtz goodies courtesy of Tim and Mario.  Challenge 24 is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique who will provide a gift certificate to one lucky winner.  Check out the website here.

All are welcome to join in these challenges. If you haven't yet I encourage you to join us. Be sure to stop by the blog to check out all the great art from the Curiosity Crew and those playing along. 

Be sure to stop by my blog to check out the progress on my healthy journey journal. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Happy Creating!

Hugs, Sharon

  2. Love this so much, Sharon!! I absolutely LOVE that you are teaming up your art with your healthy lifestyle! That art journal will no doubt be an inspiration to you to stay with it and succeed. The Remnant Rubs are placed in a balanced and pleasing way. Thanks for sharing this on CC3C!

  3. Hi Sharon. Sorry about the lateness in my commenting but better late than never. I so love your tag!! The colors are amazing and perfect for your design. You've done a brilliant use of the frameworks piece on this as well the Remnant Rubs technique. Great job on their placement in your background. All of your stamping really enhances the remnant rubs, too. I also love your use of the die cut words and how you've dimensionalized them. OUTSTANDING! Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
