Tim Holtz 12 Tags 2014 & Non-grunginess!
Yup. Look twice.
I have a confession.
I can’t do grungy.
I will keep trying. I’m trying to add distressed edges and inside I want them to look neat! Ha ha.
There’s really no hope for me.
Here’s the full thing
It might look simple- but it took me forevvaah!
I used a ton of Paper Artsy paints. I cracked open their Crackle paint and I’m sold.
I used some chalkboard paint (B&Q- hehe!) as the base, added the crackle and then London Bus ( red) over the top. The shape with the stamping on is a one grungeboard I die cut and added one of the new Lynne Perella stamps- partially stamped.
The playing card is lightly painted in snowflake to subtle-ize it ( like my new word?!) and I’ve painted the grunge paper hearts and added tiny buckles and ribbon.
I haven’t had this much fun learning in ages.
Someday I’ll let my inner messy out. My ‘outer’ messy is regularly out but the inner? Not so much.
Maybe someone could help me to release it. It’s definitely stuck!
I’m also entering this into the Sei challenge here it’s a rustic Valentine challenge and I thought this would perfect too! There’s another 5 days to enter- have a go!
Will tell you about our fun day out next post. It included selfies, rope swings, getting turned away at a pub and general otherness.
Until then! See you when I’ve cleared up my now unbelievably messy craft room. This arty-ness comes with tons of product 😉!!
