Grungy Monday #17 Rock Candy

Happy to be back, although vacation is nice too. Even though it's late in the week I wanted to get into there because I had seen so many beautiful examples from everyone! We were challenged to use Tim Holtz's rock candy crackle and stickles and add it to the collection at Linda's StudioL3, and All Things Tim sites. As you can see I used many colors of DI over Tim's resist paper. Then I stamped the bird and the words on top of the whole thing. I added a dash of prisma glitter, which doesn't show in the picture, but it adds some sparkle. Enjoy it and thanks for stopping by.

Grungy Monday #15

GM 15 wow what fun. This week our guest designer examples and instructions at Studio L3 show the use of Tim Holtz' rusted enamel, as seen in his blog - 2008 tag. I love this technique, so I combined it with another love, travel, oh yeah! I used broken china and walnut DI. I got to put ink on some of my new Tim stamps and used several bits of ideology to round it out. For me it's fun because the old plane reminds me of times when we used to dress up to fly and owning one of the coveted "Pan Am" vinyl carry-on bags... are you with me? Fly over to All Things Tim to it all check out.

Grungy Monday #14

Grungy Monday at Linda's Studio L3 and All Things Tim, using Tim Holtz technique from 2008. I whipped out my white dabber, distress inks, perfect pearls and misters and started my concoction. I used fired brick and was surprised when it turned out kindof brownish, so I went back in with some ink on top of the spray. I used the dress form stamps and sizzix die, which I love. I keep coming back to the jalopy and dress form. I styled a dress on the mannequin, it's a runway design 'in process'. Hope you enjoy it on this 4th of July!
