Compendium of Curiosities 3 - challenge # 2
The second Compendium of Curiosities run by Linda Ledbetter is all about glitter - not any old glitter but TH distress glitter. So quickly, turn to page 56 in your A COMPENDIUM OF CURIOSITIES - Volume III book and give this technique a go. I was pleasantly surprised and will definitely use this technique again.
I used the TH distress glitter technique on the ivy and the cat.
I have a confession to make. When A Vintage Journey had their last challenge -the theme was memories. My fondest memories growing up all revolve around my grandparents. I all but lived with them and at a couple of points in history, I did live with them. One Halloween I could not go out trick or treating so my Nanny brought trick or treating to me. She dressed up as a witch and each and every child that came to the door had to shake her hand. She had stuffed a rubber glove with ice and tied it to a stick which she held and her actual hand was covered with her witch garb. Then she propped up 3 brooms in the hall and in order to get your treat, you had to get a broom and ride it around the dining room table 3 times to get a popcorn ball and a small paper sack of candy corn. She also had a big tub full of water and apples where if one wished, one could bob away. One important fact is that my grandparents did not have a lot of money. They lived in the old part of Asheville full of gracious old homes slowly going into disrepair. Most of the people had left for better and newer parts of town.
My grandparents rented the down stairs and someone else rented the top floor. They did not own a television or a car. Their phone was a party line. So this Halloween party was a big deal to all of us. Especially all the children in the neighborhood who were just as poor as we were if not more so.
Unfortunately life got in the way and I ran out of time to enter this into A Vintage Journey. So I am sharing this memory with you now.
I am entering this make into Linda's COMPENDIUM OF CURIOSITIES 3- challenge #2
