Compendium of Curiosities Challenge- week 32


Sadly our amazing journey with Linda at Studio L3 will soon be over. I have had so much fun participating in these challenges - meeting new friends and being inspired by SO much amazing ART! Linda has been the most fantastic leader that you could ever hope for. The sponsors have all been incredibly generous. For week 32 I knew I had to start work on the cover for the album I am making to keep all my samples in. A while ago I found a wooden album that looks like a book (at the thrift store for $1.50). It has a oval glass frame on the front and that is where this piece will be going. I made a foam A to use as a stamp and the A mask from Tim's set. The shape is from his Styled Labels Die. All of the stamps are TH. The letters are from an SU die. The background is a piece of rusted enamel. Too easy but I am happy with how it turned out.
Thank you for looking!
