I've lived in the same house all my married life....almost 33 years! Only in the last two years have I become so aware of the fact that there is almost no natural light....at least where I can use it for photographs! For Linda's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge today, I spent so much more time trying to get a decent photograph than putting the Altered Metal with Paint creation together! It's still not true-to-life. To top it off, I dropped the piece and crimped a corner of the thin metallic paper, which refused to smooth out. Today was definitely a challenge!
I have only three dabbers that work, so I used Juniper and Pearl for Tim's metal pieces. The patterned paper has the same juniper color as the paint--and I just realized that it's the same paper I used to back up my previous Curiosity. (See page 48 in Tim's book for this easy technique---#30 on Linda's list.)
