Today I want to show you 3 tags I made for the *Grungy Monday* Challenge over at Studio L3. This time it's celebrating Tim Holtz's March 2008 Technique
I used a stamp with flourishes for all 3 tags, but positioned it each time differently. I used Forest Moss, Spiced Marmalade and vintage photo inks, and gold perfect pearls. This is what they looked like after distressing;
I stamped the images with archival black using stamps from Tim Holtz and Character Constructions.
The technique was fun to try out, but it's quicker with resist ink!
And now I want to show you the lovely bookmarks I got from the *Gingersnaps* Book mark art exchange, each one is different, and each one is gorgeous, judge for yourselves:
The first two pictures show the bookmarks from Petra B. and Laura Liddell
Petra has written a quote on the back of hers, Laura an explanation of the Japanese picture and script.
The next picture shows the bookmarks from Sarah and Zoe . Sarah's African lady with the wonderful, beaded tassel and Zoe's very unusual bookmark of my home town and in my fave colours have also won a place in my heart.
Thank you all for putting so much work and talent into these beautiful little art works, which I will treasure!
And lastly, a sneak-peek of my altered *matchbox* for Tee's swap. I tried to buy a large box of matches here to alter, and got told in both possible stores in our little town that large matchboxes are a winter item, and not in stock just now! Are they kidding?? Anyway, I found a box (5 x 3 1/2") without a lid in my bottomless pit aka hall closet, and made a sleeve for it from some cardstock from SEI. I cut butterflies out of the rest of the paper, glazed them with glossy accents, and mounted them on top, with beads for *bodies*. Then I added some pale pink lace and a tassel. The rest - the lining and the goodies which will be going into it - have to stay a secret till they get to Tee!
And a short joke Narda sent yesterday, I think all ladies will love this one:
A woman devised her own system for labeling homemade
Meals she stored in the freezer. Instead of calling them
Chicken Parmigiana or Meatloaf, she labeled them
Whatever, Anything, I Don't Know and, her favorite, Food.
That way when she asked her husband what he wanted
For dinner, she was certain to have it on hand.
Actually, I wanted to do a quick post today....But time enough to wish you all a great day! Take care and thanks for visiting!
