Amazing

It's time once again for the Compendium of Curiosities II challenge at Linda's. It's week 24 already. And as always, we're basing the challenges on the book by Tim Holtz. This week's challenge is all about Alcohol Ink Resist and can be found on page 59.

Cheryl Mezetti posted a quote the other day and it just spoke to me. "Because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing." I decided to use that as the basis of my tag and it just sorta evolved, as they so often do! I used some GrungeBoard pieces and since I was inspired by Cheryl and she is one of the lead designers for Creative Imaginations, I painted them with Luminarte (formerly known as Twinkling H2O's) for some shimmer. To know how to do the Alcohol Ink Resist, ya gotta go buy the book! I can tell you that is the chicken wire that the Grunge pieces are on.
