Tim Holtz's blog. This tag contains lots of techniques and many embellishments. Ofcourse I had to improvise with my embellies...well this one is one I will not forget so easily I can tell you that. The little thingie with the 2 on the right side of the photo... that was something special.... I didn't have it and I try to make it from cardboard or thick paper with silverpaint on it, with my paintdabber..... The paintdabber was dry and clotted and I gave it a little squeeze and then ......silverpaint all over the place.
The word band with "Reasons Why" I made from cardboard, painted with silver and coloured with alcohol Ink.
I also used the alcohol ink on the tab with 2 and on the coin.
On the right side of the photo a stamped definition of "Curiosity".
The photo I used was a picture of myself at age 3. My father made an enlargement ( 50x70 cm) on hardboard and this hung on the wall. I love this picture of myself. It shows me when I was carefree and happy. ( Reasons why....)
Years ago I followed a course in Calligraphy and now I picked it up again. I bought 12 bottles with Ink and it is such fun.
I love comments so don't be shy.

The techniques I used are described in Tim Holtz's book "Compendium of Curiosities vol.II"on page 62. I used a thirth technique, that is not described. Can you tell which technique that is ?
I hope you like it. It is so different from the other things I make. Comments are welcome. Have to hurry up, the challenge is closing within a few hours.
