Compendium of Curiosities III

Once again the wonderful and talented Linda Ledbetter has challenged us to work our way through the king of art himself, Tim Holtz's third book. The first challenge is found on page 43, Paint Marbling. Sorry, I can't tell you how to do the technique, you have to buy your own copy of the book to play along. If you order it from Tim's blog, he will sign it for you! Sweeeeeet! This challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium. You can buy all the latest and greatest art supplies there. Go have a look. To join in the challenge, go to Linda's blog here. i have been feeding and watching my feathered friends return from the horrible long Wisconsin winter we endured this year. I kept my tag very simple so as not to cover up the technique too much and had to use the bird and nest on it. I used a fw of Wendy's Archival colors also along with my distress.

May Day

We had so much fun creating these little door-hangers at the gathering, that I got busy and made a bunch of them for the grandkids to go and hang on doors and run. They had a blast! Three houses caught us in the act, but we got away with the rest of them. LOL

April's gathering

I am so behind all the time! Here are the cards I made up for Jacki's gathering in April. For the make and take, we made a May basket to hang on a door with a seed packet in it. I got the idea from a fellow CTMH blogger. (Susan, I think, but can't remember for sure) Used the SOTM Bubble Talk and lots of scraps to make the card. i love the feather stamp set so this one was a lot of fun.
