Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #19

The lovely Linda at Studio L3 is hosting a challenge series based on the techniques in
Tim Holtz's book "Compendium of Curiosities".

I finally ordered a book. I ordered from the man himself, and he signed it to ME. Yup. He wrote to ME. Just a little star struck. SIGH!!!

Well, I got the book a little over a week ago, but really didn't have time to create anything. I was out of town for a week, and then DH was out of town for a week. And then there's that whole mom thing I have going on. AND this Halloween thing with trick-or-treating AND the annual Halloween Sleepover. So, back to the challenge. This week we are to use the Extreme Masking technique on page 61.

Here's my attempt. I was kind of rushed. I had to hurry because of Trick or Treating tonight.

I used some Grunge board that I received in the mail as a prize for becoming the 1,500 member of the YAHOO group "ALL THINGS TIM". Cool name, isn't it?!?!?! Thank you Gloria for being such a wonderful inspiration to me. Anyway onto the tag I made, I used some of Tim's things, but not all. I hope that's okay.

I still want to add some charms to the chain,
but had to post it as is because the linky closes in a little over an hour. Yikes. 

I'll just make it.
Thanks for looking.

This certainly doesn't look like a piece that was rushed in amy way-- it's gorgeous! I love the blue and brown tones together, and the entire look is elegant and festive. You did a beautiful job on the masking!!!
