Compendium of Curiosities II–Challenge 7


Here’s my latest contribution to Linda’s challenge.  This week the focus is on the Brushless Watercolour technique from Tim Holtz’s Compendium of Curiosities II. I challenged myself further by using greens – Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint – which aren’t my favourite colours (I’m an Aries and I love RED! – or leopard print).  I have to be honest, when I started to try this technique I thought it wasn’t going to end well, but it came out pretty good,  I thought.  As well as Tim's technique I took my water brush and highlighted parts of the design by wetting them and then blotting up the water.  Once it was all dry I overprinted the music and the sentiment using Memento ink. 

If you want to join in, over to Studio L3  for all the details.  This week’s challenge is sponsored by the lovely people at Eclectic Paperie so you could win some goodies!

So, SO gorgeous, Keren! I love those greens-- they give such a vintage feel to the piece, and the design is awesome! Really great use of the Brushless Watercolor technique!!!
