Work in Progress

Its 'Configurations Time'.
This is most definitely work in progress, the next stage of our journey exploring the techniques in Tim Holtz's  Compendium of Curiosities  Volume 2.
 Linda over at Studio L3 has directed us for Challenges 11 and 12 to pages 33 and 34 of the book.
Mario has given a fantastic prize for this challenge as well.
As you can see, its nowhere near finished, but Linda said this would be okay as its the techniques that are important not the details of what we add. As always we cannot say what we did, just guide you to the pages we used.
The only thing I realy would like to know is  how do you get the tissue tape to stick down?
Mine was not playing ball.
I may not get to visit all my blog friends in the next few days, I look forward to visiting   with you all later.
Thank you for taking time to take a look, your comments are appreciated.

  1. Lovely piece! When I made one of these last year the ends of the tissue tape kept coming unstuck, so I used a bit of glue stick, and smoothed the ends down till they really stuck! Valerie

  7. At least you have made a start and its looking great. My box is still packaged up and its been a year like that.......
    The only suggestion I can make Yvonne about the tape is.....have you tried Modge Podge Matt......it will also act both as a glu and as protection. Annette x

  9. Oh I so wanted an old car to add to mine! This is so fun and I can't wait to see the completed project! Love this! It does take time and I kept adding and thought I might not finish!

  10. Ouu! Awesome! I love your box so far! Bet it'll blow my socks off when you're finished!

    I use a bit of mod podge, glue-n-seal or Aleen's quick dry tacky glue to cope with the tape when it won't behave!
