CCC #7

Just a quick post for CCC # 7, for the details go to the Studio L3 Blog and while you are there, check out the other AWESOME projects for this week's challenge and Linda's inspiring art!!!

This weeks challenge Tinted Vision Fragments was found on page 55 in the Compendium of Curiosities.  Charlene came over earlier in the week and we each worked on the fragments.  I used a picture of my parents when they were dating and a 1 1/2" fragment.  

Later in the week I started working on something to use the fragment on and came up with a 4 x 5 canvas frame.   I used all kinds of layers on the frame, then decided the fragment was too small.  Using a larger version of the same image, I ended up with one just right!  Well at least I think it was just right!

In the next few days, I will post some pictures of a project I just completed.  It started out as a relatively simple project, but it just kept growing and growing and growing!  (If you are wondering why I haven't been around much lately, it's because of trying to get the project completed!)

Have a fabulous week!



  1. Linda, it's wonderful! You definitely found a fragment that was just right, and did great things with it. The photo is priceless! What a beautiful couple-- you dad looks a little like Joaquin Phoenix!

    Your canvas is stunning, and your sweet embellishments tie it all together so well!

    I can't wait to see the next Big Reveal!

  2. This piece is really beautiful up close - the multiple layers really make it a dramatic piece of art. Its also a great tribute to your parents Linda.

    As far as the project I know the secret! I'm not going to tell though but let just say.....its mine! Mine! MINE!!!! Yipee!!

  3. Beautiful work Linda! I love all the layers. You're right-it is just right.

  4. What a delighful project you created and I can't wait to see what you have been working on!
