Today’s tag is for Grungy Monday using Tim Holtz‘s technique with alcohol ink. This one was a bit of a challenge for me. I only own these three colors of alcohol ink. I suppose I could have chosen a better stamp for my central image but I do so love the geishia. I added a few flourishes to the edges, inked the tag base with peeled paint and added some hemp and a chinese coin. I would like to try this again with some different color inks. I learned that its good to try new techniques even if it is not my best work. Not everything I touch will turn out pretty. Sad but true. Perhaps practice is the key. Thank you for stopping by.

I am so excited to make Grungy Monday this week. As you know, WordPress had some glitches which prevented me from participating last week. The theme is ‘Love Tim Holtz Style.’
I had fun using all my new grungeboard shapes. What awesome stuff. Can’t believe I have made it this far without them. I am discovering a whole new world of products and techniques this year.
There is not much to tell about what I did (actually, I am just feeling too tired to write it all) but the short version is I painted, distressed, stamped and then repeated that process a lot.
Thank you for stopping by.
