Studio L3 Compendium Challenge using Tim Holtz's distress misting masks technique is sort of like trying to entice bears with honey -- easy enough to be considered cheating.
After all, at least half of all of us who've been roped into scrap booking, card making or altered art have found ourselves addicted because we know it'll mean playing with lots of stuff covered in glittery goodness.
This technique from the Compendium of Curiosities plays perfectly into that need: It adds shimmer and color and, depending on how much spritzing you do, a little or a lot of texture.
My own spritzes, over a worn lipstick-inked sheet and flourish mask, have a lot of somewhat chunky texture -- think freckles on the arm of a red head.
The single warning I'd like to offer to anyone who hasn't tried this one yet: Hide your wallet if you're on a budget (My Guy is protecting my empty money sock).
Of all the Holtz Compendium techniques this is the one that has most made me want to run straight out and buy a bucket full of masks and the other three main technique products (which I can't list because it'd give away the instructions that we've been admonished not to share).
So, try this one if you dare and then be sure to show off your piece at Studio L3 before 8 p.m. January 16.
