Grungy Monday 12

Here is my contribution to Linda's Tim Holtz challenge at her blog, Studio L3. This week she has searched into the archives and found a technique of Tims that he showed in April 2008. It's his 'shabby chic' technique but this time using printed paper and made much more grungy. Click the link if you would like to see how to do it.

I have used  Tims Crowded Attic paper stash and focused on the buttons and sewing parts of it. You don't always have exactly the same resources as the inspiration piece and this is one of those times where I have had to substitute things. For instance I didn't have the papers he used (but that's good as it makes you stretch your creativity and come up with something totally personal to yourself) and I haven't got the dymo, espresso paint dabber, grunge pieces, nor the same harlequin stamp, but I improvised and I think it has worked ok.


I love that this has a little tag attached to it.

Hope your weekend has gone well. Our BBQ went well this afternoon and we have just finished cleatring up after everyone went home.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
