Studio L 3 Challenge...

Over at Linda Louise Ledbetter's extra room upstairs ( I agree Linda...Studio L3 works much better!!! )... she is hosting a challenge for us using techniques from Tim Holt's Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2. Each week we have to use a certain technique. This week we are using page 58, Faux Patina. I can not tell you how to do the technique, for we want to encourage every one to purchase their own wonderful book.

There are also prizes to be won...always a good reason to create!!! This weeks prize is sponsored by Angie Lentz and it is a very beautiful idea-ology Messenger Bag, autographed by Tim himself!

Here then is my take on Faux is used on the Ornate Plate...

The background was created by covering a piece of card stock with a thick layer of gesso paint and then I pressed and wrinkled a piece of tissue wrap on to it. A good helping of Distress Inks and spray mists and a stamp followed.

I am posting this on the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge as well. This weeks challenge is Stamp and Show your favourite word. I chose Sentimental as my word, for that I am most certainly!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is gorgeous, Patricia! Beautiful job on the Ornate Plate-- the Faux Patina looks great, and the little photo is my very favorite from the Paper Stash. I just love all the visual texture you created on the background. Lovely! Thanks so much for being part of the CC2C!

    Hugs, from the VERY messy extra room upstairs!

  2. Love it Patricia, thank you for sharing your creation with the DT from Simon Says Stamp and Show, hugs terry xxxx
