Here is my creation...I started with a Cigar box............ painted in Broken China Distress Paint.
I prepared a piece of card stock for each side and top using the technique on page 47.

I added various stamps and quotes to each side and some water colored stamped cut outs of Dyan Reaveley collection..(another fave of mine..)
I alcohol inked (stream) on an acrylic top and added as a lid

CC3 Challenge...........Simple Beautiful Life..

CC3 Challenge #30 is Underway!!

Time for the 30th challenge in this journey through Tim Holtz’s A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 3!  Faux Cracked Glass techniques, Open up your copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3 to page 54 for the instructions, and remember, no sharing them on your blog. This challenge is for those who have supported Tim by purchasing his book.

My take on the crackle glass technique! This was fun!! Although I could have gone crazy embellishing this frame I felt it best to go along with my "simple"quotes and keep it simpler. I started out with a tag I made recently that I just loved and thought this was a great way to make a beautiful piece to hang in my studio!
 I love the way this turned out! 

I used an old Ikea frame and painted it with the eroded metal technique.

Added some adorable crackled and stained TH bottles

Closer look at bottles..They are so fun!

added a bird on a chain distressed with black soot marker and peeled paint distress paint 

Life is Simply Beautiful from Tim's chit chats added and a small crackle glass bottle on top!

My crackled glass close up...shhhh cant tell how I did it..You just have to get the book and turn the page to 54!!
