Metal Bird .......

Design Detail
Here we are Week #35 and the last, final, end of the CC Challenge and this week fittingly we are using the final technique in the book on page 67.  I have managed to complete all of the challenges Whoooo  Hoooooo :-() and enjoyed the whole experience.  All hail to our leader through this journey the lovely Linda and of course the King of grunge and all things Inky Tim Holtz who has allowed us to share his wonderful techniques from his Compendium of Curiosities book and for all the wonderful prizes.  I still have everything crossed just in case I am lucky in the draw!!!  This has caused problems crafting and I probably will be stuck like this forever - how a girl must suffer for her craft LOL.


I have to say this was the hardest challenge for me don't know why perhaps because the ideas didn't flow but as I gathered some of my favourite things.......... thats a song ....sing along with me ......lol; ok sorry I get distracted and float off the subject frequently..... together I was away and my last page came together quite quickly,flower is made with tattered flowers die, DI used victorian velvet and vintage photo, pink sherbert dabber used on tag, texture fades embossing folders used for background and metal. 
I have linked things together that mean something to me for the whole challenge....K is for King of Grundge....Tim Holtz   who's book has made this journey possible and 35 for the challenge week we ended on, also the inspire tag is just what the challenge has done...inspired me and lastly Enjoy the Journey.. I certainly have.   Hope you like it.  I will try to leave a comment on as many blogs as I can this week.


I have met some lovely talented people along the way and I thank you all for your visits to my blog and for the lovely comments left along the way.  How will we survive Monday mornings without the lovely Linda - has she something else up her sleeve for us? well it has been hinted at so we will have to wait and see!!!
As I have used metal on the design so I am joining in with the challenge at Simon Says Show  Some Metal and also at Gingersnap Creations where the Random Redhead Challenge GC91 is Crowns and I think this will fit in perfectly.
All items used were Tim Holz except for the metal not sure where I got this and the card is co-ordinations


Phew long post

Bye for now

    I too had a hard time with this, maybe because we had less direction with this challenge.

  16. Maggie, it's been an absolutely delight sharing this CCC journey with you and admiring your art every week. You're a wonderful artist and lovely person!

    Your Grand Finale piece is gorgeous, my dear! I LOVE the colors, and the sweet little bird, and you've used the Design Details technique beautifully on those flowers. The rose up top is shabby-chic perfection!

    I agree-- "K" is absolutely for the King of Grunge himself. I think Tim would be delighted by this!

    Thank you so much for sharing your talent, and I very much hope you'll be back for the next chapter!
