Compendium of Curiosities #34

We’re almost done with the Compedium challenges!  This week at the wonderful Linda’s, we’re making Dimensional Collage Fragments, and I have to tell you, they are super fun.  Despite that I messed up the first one I tried.  I didn’t use enough adhesive, and where it didn’t cover, it left very obvious pale marks.  So those of you following along in Tim Holtz’s Compendium of Curiosities, take note: Don’t skimp on the glue!

Another tip: If you use ink-jet printouts, spray them first with a fixative; they tend to smear.

I finished my fragments by outlining with a giant honkin’ (very thick) black Sharpie.  It adds a nice edge and keeps too much light from coming in the sides and causing more glare than necessary.  I did the background on the tag by simply applying Distress Inks (Broken China, Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive).
