Another Challenge

I was fortunate enough to be picked for Challenge #33 on All Things Tim group last week, so I thought I'd give it another try.

This week is Challenge # 34 Create your own art using the Dimensional Collage Fragments technique. Found on pg. 63 in Tim Holtz book A Compendium of Curiosities.

I used the largest fragment and stamped several images of sewing stamps. The background is an old bible page. This is a fun technique and I'm sure I'll be trying more of it.

The next step was what to do with the fragment. I decided to make a new button box for all of my old buttons that had been passed down from my Grandma. I bought this plain box at Hobby Lobby and covered it with paper.

I cut the word buttons out of Tim's paper and added a old thimble,a needle threader and one of Grandma's old buttons. I used a rub-on for the dress form. I personally think it needs more, but more dear daughter says I always add to much.

I think this qualifies for the Challenge # 34 at Studio L3

Let me know what you think, I like how it turned out but I still think it needs something. Shari
