Painted Industrial CC3C Challenge

CC3C #7 using Tim's Painted Industrial Technique!
Time is running out for Challenge #7 at Compedium of Curiosities III Challenge. The idea is to use your own copy of "A Compendium of Curiosities III" go to page 46 and Tim walks you step by step through the process, showing you how to create the painted industrial technique. Then you create a project and link it to the challenge page. The complete rules are here.

Here's mine. I finished it today. If you want to see some more projects using Tim Holtz's Painted Industrial Technique  you can find some gorgeous pieces at Linda's blog by clicking here. The sponsor for Challenge #7 is Inspiration Emporium and they will be giving away a $50 gift certificate to one lucky person. The Curiosity Crew also selects one lucky person to receive a wonderful package of goodies from Tim and Mario. Woo! Hoo! The Crew's choice also get a blinkie for their blog that says "I'm A Curiosity Crews Choice!"

I decided to make a box to display/store my tags. So I constructed a box from corrugated cardboard covered it with paper from the Wallflower Paper Stash, made my Painted Industrial pieces and put it all together. I wanted the box to compliment my tags but not compete. The Painted Industrial pieces are perfect. I have a tall Painted Industrial panel in back to support the tags. The die cut on the front of the box is also created using the Painted Industrial technique, but I have decorated it.
Pleats made using Tim's rosette die.
I wanted a slanted bottom to the box so that the tags would be higher in back but I didn't want them to slide. Using Tim's rosette die I cut 4 strips and used 2 to make pleated strips on each side of the bottom. The dashed lines made it easy to fold the pleats in a way that will keep my tags from sliding.

ARTIST heat embossed with Distress Embossing Powder on Vellum
I used Distress Paint to tint some of Tim's elastic ruffles, wrapped it around the box and attached it only at the corners and front. Now I can use it to hold small pieces if I want.

With the exception of vellum, a little kraft paper, corrugated cardboard and of course adhesive, everything used to create my box is from one of Tim Holtz product lines.
Of course I love getting comments. If you have any questions just leave a comment. I'll get an email and will get back to you quickly.. Thanks for stopping by.

I know I said time is running out but you still have time if you want to join in the fun. Challenge #7 is open until Friday, August 1, 11:55 pm MST, so you have until next Friday! If you don't have a copy of CC3 you can purchase on directly from Tim and he will autograph it for you. There are still more challenges to come!

Ruby...your storage box is amazing. What a fantastic idea and I love the fact that it is all completely made from "scratch". Love your idea and your design. The front of your box using Tim's painted industrial technique on the baroque die cut looks amazing. Your construction of your box is so smart and it beautifully displays your lovely tags. Great idea, great technique and great post! Thanks so much for sharing your art and ideas with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
