CCC Week 17 - Fragment Charms

Week 17 of the amazing Compendium of Curiosities Challenge over on the amazing blog of Linda at Studio L3. If you have not hopped over there - you are really missing out. We are all quite obsessed with anything Tim Holtz - I've finally found 'my peeps' - those who love this art as much as I do. This weeks challenge was 'fragmented charms'. All the details are on page 64 of Tim's fabulous book. I backed the charms with the Lost and Found papers, used many of Tim's stamps, and of course Distress Inks (aged mahogany, stormy sky, and pumice stone). This was a new technique to me, so took a while to get the hang of it. It was fun to dig through the 'stash' to find just the right images for the tiny charms. Have a wonderful week creating new art....


  1. Great tag Jane! I love how you did your background and yes the fragments can sometimes not be as easy as they should be. Really hoping it cools down here soon!

  2. That is so pretty, love those colors and the charms are perfect.

  3. Hey, I just hopped over to your site via Stumbleupon. Not somthing I would normally read, but I liked your thoughts none the less. Thanks for making something worth reading.

  4. Jane, this is a fabulous tag! I love your use of those tiny Lost and Found images for the charms, and the background is gorgeous. I always smile when I see that sweet little bird stamp! Great job, as always!!!
