Grungy Monday #9 Shabby Chic

Loveable you! Some how shabby chic makes me think of romantic decor made of found items from the flea market. So that's what I went for on my tag this week. I used pink acrylic paint and weathered wood DI, along with the ever popular dress form die cut. This was my first experience with t!m's trimmings, which I colored with some more weathered wood. I also pulled out the pearls to dress her up a bit, and of course the requisite scrollwork in the background. It's Grungy Monday over at Linda's Studio L3 and All Things Tim Yahoo group dance over and check out all the beautiful samples.

Grungy Monday #7 Color Blocking

Toole on over to Linda's Studio L3 and checkout the gorgeous color blocking example for this weeks Grungy Monday's challenge. I color blocked a roadway, green scape and sky for my jalopy to cruse along. I'm not sure if this follows Tim's directions, but there really are no rules right? I guess I'm thinking of a road trip we have planned and the beautiful scenery we will see along the way, so this saying hits the spot for me today. Enjoy the journey!

Grungy Monday #6 Wood-grain and Ma Kettle's romantic advice

On this last day of Grungy Monday I have managed to get a woodgrain background incorporated into a romantic theme? Well, that is if you see Ma Kettle as a romance advisor.... she says, "True love stories never have endings" and she definitely fits with wood-grain. Since Ididn't have the dabber color Tim demo'd, I reconstituted my Eggplant dabber and combined it with Milled Lavender and Walnut DI's, along with some Holtzian embellishments. I really liked this picture from the cover of a local magazine, representing strong women from history, for Mother's day, (expect to see more of these ladies in my projects).
