Grungy Monday #9...

Posted by Picasa
It seems I have not blogged for a while, too much going on with
the end of school and my son's high school graduation last week.
It was a long week and now I am looking forward to not having
to get up early and having time to do more art!

So here is my attempt at this weeks challenge posted on
Linda's blog. The technique is another one of Tim Holtz's 12 tag
techniques, go here to find out how you can do this technique.

I have to say that I have been working on this tag all week, had
some issues and this was my 3rd attempt at it, I know it is sad, lol!
I always have issues when it comes to using the paint dabbers,
love the idea of them but the ones I have just never work the way
they are supposed to. So I struggled through with it and finally finished it.

In the meantime I am taking the next of Christy Tomlinson's online
classes and she has put so much into this class it is amazing. She
just did Ranger U and is using lots of techniques she learned there.
Our first week's lesson had 28 videos of techniques to watch, yes
28 videos!! I believe the class is now closed but she may run it
again just like her "She Art" class that I took and loved, I know
a couple of people taking it the 2nd time due to my recommendation.
I am still working my way through this week's videos and hope to
have some pages ready to post soon. Wishing everyone an art filled week!

Your tag is brilliant, I so love the attitude part of it and the great background. Annette x

I love your choice of images...works so well with the color and the tag shape! I didn't use dabbers...I just "pounced" acrylic paint with the cut-n-dry foam. Works so well. (I threw away 2 tags before finishing mine.)

Hi Marline, your tag looks terrific. I used the same stamp twice to practise, yours are great. Love the glittery touches. You are lucky, if it wasn't for getting up early, or staying up late, I would have little time to craft.

Love the sentiment, it works so well w/the image! The idea of dabbers is a good one but the reality can be a bit frustrating.
