Compendium of Curiosities3 Challenge - #1- Paint Marbling

  CC3C as it is named, is based on 
Tim Holtz's new book Compendium Of Curiosities Vol.#3  and is hosted over at Linda Ledbetter's challenge blog. 
 This is something new for me and I am excited to be taking part in it! 
I have recently found that when I enter these different challenges, I am opening myself up to do more techniques and trying more products,- pushing past that comfort zone- and you know what? I love the challenge- as well as the lessons learned! 
                 (make sure to click on the links to learn more)      

         Week #1 of CC3C  ~The challenge is Paint Marbling 
                       here is my piece (time piece that is! heehee)
I've added a close up so you can get a real good look at how beautifully the paint colors marbled and melded!
 It's cool how even though I did not use a green or orange, I still have those colors! 
 I used a piece of lightweight watercolor paper and applied black gesso before the marbling technique.
in Picked Raspberry,Squeezed lemonade,Mustard Seed,Tumbled Glass Shaded Lilac,Peacock Feathers
The stamps I used are by Ranger/Tim Holtz-Stamper's Anonymous 
The time piece I have had for awhile and again, my mind fails me as to where I purchased it! Bad memory, but using up my stash! Gotta love that! 

thanks for stopping and this is where I'm linking up

Seth Apter would love this. You are certainly enjoying the journey and finding new discoveries. Awesome piece. Love anything with clocks. Is the clock substrate paper or metal? You have me thinking how cool it'd be to do this process on metal.

I also need to shop for Holtz paints...simply adore the titles he gives his paints.
