Summer

Linda at Studio L3 has started a new series of weekly challenges called Grungy Monday, based on Tim Holtz techniques. This is the first week for the new challenge and we are to use this Tim Holtz technique to inspire our work.
I began with a mask from Club Scrap and sprayed with my home made mist (Shabby Shutters Distress Reinker and Green Patina Perfect Pearls). I rubbed in some Dried Marigold and Broken China Distress ink. The music stamp (Club Scrap) was stamped on the Grunge Paper flowers and on a scrap piece of paper and embossed with Copper embossing powder. Everything was spritzed and rubbed with the home made mist. I tore a few pieces of scrap to give the illusion of a landscape, and created a faux banner. All of the pieces were grunged up with Walnut Distress ink and assembled. I couldn't find the appropriate embellishment, so I stamped the hummingbird and did a little free form stitching.

There are so many wonderful artists participating in the challenge. Stop by Studio L3 to look at all the beautiful interpretations...and thank you for stopping by.

Julie, this is absolutely gorgeous! I love the design-- the landscape and the lovely little hummingbird and flowers make my heart happy. Such pretty colors, too. You're re-visioned Tim's original tag brilliantly, and I can't wait to see more of your art. Thanks so much for joining Grungy Monday #1!
