Compendium of Curiosities Week 15




This weeks Compendium of Curiosities Challenge on the blog Studio L3  is Alcohol Ink Agate on Grunge. I decided to use my new Texture Fades that I received for taking Tim Holt's Scrapfest class. He gave all participants the snowman and snowflakes Texture Fades and a pack of elements grungeboard.
The background of my project is grungepaper embossed with the snowflakes, then inked with denim, pool, sailboat blue, pearl and silver alcohol ink, then swiped with a white pigment pad  to pop the snowflakes. The snowman is grungepaper cut with Tim's die, embossed with the snowman Texture Fade then inked with white pigment and Tumbled Glass and stamped with Chipped Sapphire using the snowman stamp. I also sprayed everything with perfect pearl water. The snowflakes on the frame are from the Seasonal Grungeboard package and inked the same as the background. The fragment is also inked the same as the background and stamped with Archival Ink.




Thanks for looking!
