grungy monday

Hi world
The  start of another week and another Grungy Monday challenge from Linda Ledbetter over  at  Studio L3.
 Her challenges celebrate all things by Tim Holtz
This week I find another technique from Tim that I have not seen before.
 The  wood grain background is very clearlt explained on his blog

I didnt have much time today in fact I didnt even start until about 5 pm. I dont think I quite did the technique justice. But here it is anyway

I decided to make a book mark tag for a friend who is always reading.
These are the products I used;
salmon paint dabber
Distress Inks antique photo, old pages

Book stamp from Elusive Images ,I made 2 pages
Paper flowers which I sprayed with  sunset orange colour wash and dusted with orange cosmic shimmer.
Upon a time die cut alphabet dusted with red bronze cosmic shimmer

I squished, folded and rolled the pages so they looked older.

Take a look at all the lovely art on the Studio L3 blog its great to be nosey LOL


  1. Great tag!I love the little book you made to go on there, your friend will love it.

  2. This is wonderful. And such a perfect gift for a reader -- I'd enjoy it, as I'm a "book worm", too. Nice job.

  3. This is perfect for a bookworm! I am very jealous of your book stamp - gonna trawl the Internet to find one now!

  4. Fabulous tag, your friend will love it!

  7. A theme after my own heart! I love your darling "Book Worm" tag. The GM technique worked beautifully, and the little distressed book is absolutely awesome! Love those flowers, too. I think you MORE than did the technique justice-- this is fabulous!

  8. very original and just love those pages...
