CCC #7 - Peeking

I think the cutest pictures sometimes are the ones where people or animals are peeking out from behind something. This weeks challenge over at Studio L3 was all about peeking. Well, really it was called Tinted Vision Fragments but there was definately some peeking going on. So go over and take a peek yourself. These challenges are fun and I'm learning a lot - and they are perfectly suited to the novice or the experienced.

My little peekers were created using Tim's Fragment Charms and a section of his Lost and Found Collection papers (ATC size) with little animals. There is a frog playing a cello, a boxing kangaroo, a very fancy piggy, and much more. I absolutely loved it. So using the techniques found in the Compendium of Curiosities book I created several charms with the animals peeking out thru the alcohol ink colors, I backed them all with dictionary paper and sealed them with glossy accents.

Thanks again Linda H. for sharing and Linda L. for sponsoring all this fun!


  1. Charlene, these are wonderful! I love the bright, cheerful colors, and the animal images are probably my favorite of all Tim's papers! Your charms would bring a smile to anyone's face (they certainly did to mine!), and I'm so happy you shared them with us!

  2. Your fragment charms are so pretty Charlene, I had to click and take a closer look :D! Love your colours and the papers you used they're perfect for this techinique. Love your little pieces of art.

  3. They are beautiful Charlene, are you making a bracelet with them? Annette x

  4. Even prettier and more colorful in person as well very tiny! (I know because I was just holding them, squinting trying to see what animal I had. lol) I definitely like the enlarged photos because I can actually see what I am looking at. . . You are looking like a pro!
