I haven't forgotten how to blog. Really, I haven't! I have been busy; besides getting ready for Christmas, I decided an unexpected root canal would be fun. It was my first ever and I was kidding about the fun part because this last week had not been fun.
I have managed to get a few things finished including Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #24 hosted by the fabulous Linda at StudioL3! Today is the last day of the challenge, but there will be a brand new challenge posted tomorrow morning, so be sure to check it!
For Challenge 24 we were instructed to turn to page 47 for the Rock Candy Distress Stickles technique. Check out the Compendium of Curiosities by Tim Holtz for the details on the technique. For the base of my tag, I found a couple pieces of scrap paper that had obviously had been used to make Christmas trees at some point and used the leftover "frame". Under the trees I used some leftover TH Seasonal Paper Stash. (I LOVE using all the little leftover pieces of paper I can't throw away!) Once I had the tag base created, I followed the directions in the book! It's a fun easy way to add some sparkle! If you haven't already, I hope you give it a try!
Did you follow along with Tim and his 12 Tags of Christmas? The man is a creative GENIUS. Even though I haven't posted any yet, I have 6 days completed, 2 days in progress and 4 waitin' to get made plus another project. I hope to have the project completed by tomorrow and the tags before Christmas. As soon as they are complete, I will post pictures!
Have a fabulous week!
