Another Sunday Grungy Monday!

Last week disappeared in a blur of invigilating, working at the Stamp Pad, being a Midday and being a taxi driver to my children and their friends!! So today I have sat down to do my Grungy Monday Week 6 (see StudioL3 for more info on that) and I've lost my mojo... This week's challenge was to create a 'weathered wood' background using a Ranger Dabber paint and distress inks. I did that bit then threw various elements at my tag - at least I can call it collage but I'm not happy with it, however, I've run out of time so it will have to do. Will try harder next week! Here's my effort:

All my elements (except for the ric rac and staples) are from Tim Holtz (this isn't a requirement of the challenge, it's just a little challenge I've set myself as I have so much crafting material of his I'm making all my Grungy Monday pieces Totally Tim!!) I stamped the blue Stampers Anonymous 'flames' in Denim Dabber paint and all the other stamping is done with various colours of archival ink and a variety of Visual Artistry Stampers Anonymous acrylic stamps including the one behind the facet. I was aiming for a sense of freedom ... Pop by again soon - my aim is to blog three times a week! JulieD

  5. Julie, I'm so glad you got some time for yourself, and delighted to see your gorgeous Grungy Monday art! I love the colors you used for the background, and your stamping is absolute perfection! The tiny letter is AWESOME!!!

    I'm sorry you're not happy with it-- I really do think it's beautiful!
