Compendium of Curiosities III Challenge is Here!

The official announcement has been made, so I can now tell you the exciting news! The fabulous Linda Ledbetter is hosting the official Compendium of Curiosities III Challenge (#CC3C) based on techniques from Tim Holtz's incredible new book by the same name, the third in a series.  The book is jam-packed with amazing art inspiration and techniques!  The challenge begins next Saturday, April 26th.

I was extremely honored to be asked by Linda to be part of the Curiosity Crew, a wonderful group of super talented artists and special friends who will be playing along with all of you!  We are ready to get curious and want you to join us in the fun, so pull out your Distress inks and paints and and let's get creative!  

I have it on good authority that there are a TON of fabulous prizes to give away provided by Tim and Mario as well as our generous sponsors, the Inspiration Emporium and the Funkie Junkie Boutique!  Instructions on how to win will  be included with each new post.

To play along with us, you will first need your own copy of the book.   If you don't have the book yet, you may purchase it here.  The challenges will be posted every two weeks along with the page number from the book where the technique can be found.  Linda will be mixing things up, so none of the challenges will follow in the same order as the book.  Check out the Challenge page here for more information and to meet your Curiosity Crew!

Are you ready?  Get those creative juices flowing and join us in the fun!
