A Curiosity of Weathered Wood Grunge

Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #29....could it really be that many?    Linda has chosen "Weathered Wood Grunge" on page 50 of Tim's book for the week.    I was able to use my new "Ornamental" die and one of Tim's adage tickets....plus some of those alpha stickers included in each Basic Grey paper collection.


By the way, "adage" is a traditional saying expressing a common experience or observation; a proverb.

This is beautiful, Evelyn! The perfect blend of simplicity and sophistication (that sounds like a commercial, doesn't it??). You've completely mastered shabby-CHIC with this piece. The weathered wood grunge looks fabulous, and the sweet, clean design really lets the technique shine. It's visual onomatopoeia-- it says "peace" and it LOOKS like peace! Great job!

Well it appears we are having some English Literacy Lessons here!
It is interesting how when commenting on other peoples work one thinks about the word. Adjectives and Simile being the most common to convey how the card presents.
My adjective for your card Evelyn is clean and clear (is this alliteration?).
It is not too grunge looking which I prefer.
Smiles:)

I love the colors you used in this - green and brown is one of my favorite color combos. I also appreciate the vocabulary lesson, Teacher. ;-)
