Compendium of curiosities challenge - 6

Tim Holtz CC3 challenge , no 6  Secret Garden

I am so loving this challenge , I am glad we have lots of projects 
In the book to go still :-)
As usual I am not allowed to mention the exact challenge, you need to
And get a copy of Tim's book it's great , you won't regret it 

There are fabulous sponsors and prizes

This is my entry, it's an altered burlap panel .

I got the idea and it wouldn't go away ! It was brilliant to do & made me use a technique 
I have not used for a while . 
Ten seconds studio metal for the die cut door pediment, the bird & the keyhole.
I embossed with my metal embossing tools & used distress inks to stain them
Along with the other metal embellishments , the watering can, the key & door knocker.

The Tin Hotlz burlap panel is really great for projects like this one
Below photo is the panel after following Tim' technique 

Paints used on burlap were Fresco Cinnamon , ice blue & a little bit of beach
Hut & French roast.


  1. Love the metal pediment! So awesome! Glad to inspire you with the door looks awesome! Wonderful background on this burlap panel too! Thanks so much for playing along on our burlap canvas challenge at CC3Challenge!!!
