Compendium of Curiosities 3, Challenge 29


I'm joining in on the latest Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge. This one is all about the eroded metallic technique. What a fun time!  If you want to play along grab your copy of Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities III and turn to page 44. 

I used the eroded metallic for my old jalopy and sign. Perfect for an old car, right?  I created a journal spread about driving yourself to an unique life and leaving the ordinary behind. 

The spread is a bit of a hot mess but I adore the eroded metallic on the car and the sign. 

My art journals are about learning and letting go. It's my playground and lab. Great place to practice new techniques and just have fun.  I'm ok with however things turn out as long as I enjoyed the process. 

As with all the challenges the curiosity crew will select a winner to receive some goodies from Tim and Mario. This challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium. One lucky participant will receive a gift certificate.  Be sure to visit their site at

Thanks for stopping by to see how I used eroded metallic in my journal. 

Happy Creating!

Hugs, Sharon
