Eclectic Elements fabric tote with frayed tag

I bought these Tim Holtz designed fabrics as soon as they were released last year but loved them too much to cut into them!

Inspired by many ideas and Tim's frayed fabric tag in his compendium of curiosities book 3 I made this travel tote complete with a zipped interior compartment to keep valuables safe.  The bag is big enough to take a 12 x 12 scrapbook and my favourite cutter, is quilted so has a bit of insulation to keep a drink cool,  perfect to take to classes.

Altered mirror using Layering stencils and Texture paste

My project for the Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge 4 is this altered Ikea mirror.  The task was to use the techniques on page 49 of Tim Holtz book.  My mirror has 11 individual tiles so I guess that means I did the technique 11 times. I was having so much fun varying each tile I think I could have made 111!  This challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique

12 tags of 2014 - June tag

Tim shows a fab way of using stencils this time in his monthly tag challenge.   Here is my take on the challenge, I used a black tag to show off the bright colours of the inks.  Remember when using the alphabet layering stencil to follow Tims instructions and ink the reverse side, don't ask me how I now know!  The sentiment stamp is one by Sheena Douglass as I didn't have one of Tims that was suitable.
