Distress Powder

The challenge this week at Studio L3 is to use Tim's  distress powder technique from his recent book 'Compendium of Curiosities'. I used several colors of distress powder on this image and the background is from his original distress ink technique.

I must admit, I feel like I'm cheating a little this week. This piece was done 2 years ago and has been sitting in various places in my home since. It's such a simple piece, but I still love it today.

Julie, it's gorgeous! You're not cheating at all-- you used the right product that right way, and that's all that matters. I'd have hung this in my home, too. It's absolutely beautiful, and I'm so glad you shared it over at the Compendium Challenge!

See you next week??!

Hugs,
Linda
