Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Week 2

Hello, everybody! We're on week 2 of the Compendium of Curiousities Challenge over at Studio L3! This week the challenge is to complete the Fragments Basics technique! I love using fragments for embellishments and jewelry! It's so much fun to make little "windows" to showcase a design!

This is how Linda puts the second challenge:

"Right now, we're on to Challenge #2! Please open your Compendium to page 62, where you'll find Tim's tutorial for his Fragments Basics technique. I love this one!

You can use any of the Fragment styles you wish, and get as creative as you dare (ooh, I like that idea!) but do keep in mind that "Dimensional Collage Fragments" and "Fragment Charms" are both techniques that we'll be exploring later, so you might want to stick with the more basic theme this time. Of course, that's totally up to you! Please remember, though: Don't post the actual technique instructions on your blog. (Everyone was great about that last week, by the way. Thank you!)".

And this is my entry for week 2:

Love card. This card was created with fragments glued over Tim Holtz Lost and Found paper with Glossy Accents then glued onto a larger piece of paper from the same stack which was stamped and inked on the edges. Simple but I think it packs an impact!


  1. This is beautiful! Very distressy and grungy but elegant at the same time - fabulous! cheers!

  2. Oh, this is gorgeous! You've created the perfect vintage "love" note! Your distressing is just spectacular, and I love the clever way you used the fragments!

    Thanks so much for coming back for more CCC. See you Monday for the next Challenge!


  3. Fabulous card! Love it!

  4. This is Beautiful! Simply elegant with vintage grunge.

  5. It does! The style of the letters on that background really pop! Along with help from the fragments, lol!

  6. This is gorgeous, I agree it is very elegant. I love the stamps you've used in the corners, and your fragments are beautiful x
