SOAR – Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge #3

I really wanted to re-tackle this technique, it was one that we did during the Creative Chemistry class and I didn’t like the way it turned out for me. So it was PERFECT that Linda over at Studio L3 chose this technique out of Tim Holtz’s Compendium of Curiosities 2 book for this past week’s challenge.

Challenge #3 ~ Marbled Stains which can be found on page 46.

The challenge this week is also sponsored by eclectic Paperie where they’ll be giving away a $25 gift certificate to one lucky participant!

I chose a few bright colours this time around and I was pretty happy with the results. I know I still need to play with this technique a little more to get the hang of it. What I do love about making up backgrounds is that it can steer you in a different direction from where you thought, it takes a life on it’s own. After I had made this background I wanted to use Tim’s Papillon stamp but the hot air balloon stamp just seemed perfect on it!

Thanks for dropping in today and be sure to drop by Linda’s blog to check out the other fabulous entries, better yet grab your copy of Compendium of Curiosities 2 and come play! 🙂

  1. Hey, doll, this is sensational!!! I love how the background turned out, and you made a great choice with the stamps. You’re so right– sometimes it’s best to let the background determine the imagery, and the hot air balloon is absolutely perfect. Great work… as always!!!
