Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge, #33


can you believe we are almost to the end of the CC3 Challenges?  It has been fun to play along and I have enjoyed learning some new techniques along the way.

Challenge #33 is all about Altered Surfaces.

Those who play along by submitting a project using the technique and visit each Curiosity Crew team member's blog and leave a comment will be eligible to receive a great assortment of Tim's products courtesy of Tim and Mario if they are selected as the Curiosity Crew's Choice.

This challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium and one lucky winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to shop at their fabulous online store.  Be sure to visit Inspiration Emporium and check out the amazing selection.

I know I always say this but this technique is fun.  Great grungy fun!  The possibilities are endless and can be adapted to any project.  I was so inspired by the Curiosity Crew's projects and amazed at the variety.  Be sure to visit Linda Ledbetter's blog, Studio L3 to see the projects and get more details on the challenge.

I worked in my Dylusions large journal for this challenge and got a chance to play with the newly released Crazy Birds dies.  Oh what a joy!  These crazy birds just make me smile.

Cute, huh?  I decided that these crazy birds needed a neighborhood!  Their houses are created with Tim's Artful Dwelling die and some scraps of Tim's paper.  I used the challenge technique to create the house numbers.

One of my favorite things was that I could color coordinate the house number with the color of each bird.  Hee hee hee!  Oh its the little things, right?

The page was finished off with an appropriate sentiment.

I've really been enjoying playing in my art journal this year.  Such a great way to play with my inks, paints, stamps and dies.  Looking forward to the accessories stamps for these crazy feathered friends.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you love these birds and their color coordinated houses as much as I do.

Happy creating!

Hugs, Sharon
