A few of my girlfriends were lucky enough to take a few classes with Tim Holtz this past summer at Whim So Doodle in St. Petersburg, Florida and came home with several projects, one of which was a wonderful patchwork filled with Tim's techniques. Like me, many of you have probably seen different variations of patchworks by Tim. I've always had it in the back of my mind to create one myself, and I finally got an opportunity so I'll be teaching this one at my All Things Tim class this month.
I got out my trusty Compendium of Curiosities book and started studying the techniques, picking and choosing which ones I wanted to use. Then I went to my local craft store and purchased a black 9 x 12 canvas on which to mount everything. Finally I got out all my Idea-Ology goodies and Stampers Anonymous stamps and spread them out before me. And let's not forget my Sizzix Alterations dies too.
Here are a few close-ups with the techniques I used from the book...
Dabber Resist, pg. 37
Scribble Stain Distress, pg. 34
Alcohol Ink Agate on Grunge, pg. 53

This was just a Kraft Resist thing I did with Peeled Paint Distress Stain.

These are just a few I highlighted, but if you go back and click on the main photo you'll also see the following techniques from the book as well:
