Compendium of Curiosities III Challenge 7 - Painted Industrial Luminary

Hi everyone and welcome. It's time to squeeze in under the wire for the latest round of Linda Ledbetter's Compendium of Curiosities III Challenges. Challenge 7 is all about the Painted Industrial technique from page 46 of Tim Holtz' Compendium and is sponsored this time by Inspiration Emporium. Tim and Mario have also been very generous with goodies too.


I've gone all out this time with a luminary created using the Painted Industrial technique. You'll see it's embossed/painted inside as well as out because I knew the sides would remain open to the elements. There are extra touches of Tea Dye Distress Paint to give a hint of rusting on the surface.



The begonias atop the luminary were all handmade using the Jumbo Tattered Florals Bigz XL die and one of the Mini Tattered Florals Movers and Shapers Die. They and the ribbon bows were coloured with Tattered Rose and Shabby Shutters Distress Stains, finished off with Tea Dye Distress Ink.



As I'd attached the flowers to wire I was able to use this through the luminary 'roof' to attach a 'bell'. More metal here too, this time inked using Butterscotch and Rust Alcohol Inks and cut from one of the Tarnished Trophies Bigz die. Finished with an inked bead, I felt it should remain un-embossed to provide more of a contrast with the luminary itself.



The metal base needed a bit of glamour without detracting from the other elements so Shabby Shutters Distress Glitter was perfect. And the bows and garlands around the base were die cut and coloured to match.



Phew! I'm glad to have made it in time this time round and hope you like my little creation. Now where on earth to put it...! There are some incredible creations over at this round of the challenge so I hope you'll take some time to look at the work of the Design Team and other entrants.

Take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx

  32. In the entryway of your home, Jenny! If you can't open a gallery with your work and Annie's and some of your other fabulously talented friends, then you should have a table or alcove dedicated to "rotating" art to showcase your spectacular works of art like this!! Hugs, Darnell

  33. Jenny...I saw this on Facebook first and loved it! Your painted industrial technique on each of the panels looks amazing! What a great base for Tim's lantern! Every little detail you've done on this is so sweet. It really is a clash of soft verses grungy and you've pulled it off perfectly. I totally love your flowers. They remind of beautiful peonies. I can almost smell their fragrance! The distressed ribbon that you have added gives such a feminine touch to this piece. I also love the little garlands at the bottom of each side. So sweet! Thanks so much for sharing your always wonderful art with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
