Tim Holtz Grungy Monday Challenge 7

Good morning all hope you all had creative weekend.Well this monday i have some exciting news well for me!

Im so Honoured to be asked to be guest Designer at Grungy Monday Challenge blog .Thankyou so much Linda .As soon as i was asked i got straight into my creation.So pleased i did as after Easter and all the bank holidays my mojo went on his this weeks challenge is........Grungy Monday 7

This weeks Theme is

Tim Holtz Color Blocking :

Click on link below to see the technique required for this weeks challenge.

1 8x8 canvas picture that i bought at pound shop,didnt like design on it ,so gave it a layer of Gesso.Ran a hard bristol brush through the gesso to get the texture/design .I love to reuse and recycle rather than bin! Then used the technique for this weeks challenge (which can be found in link above )stamped in Rangers distress inks ,spiced marmalade,wild honey,aged mahogany,fired brick,barn door ,dried marigold .I then got my background i wanted .

I used smaller canvas as my centre point did same technique and colours .Stamped Tim Holtz collection stamp from Stampers Annonymous in Distressed clear embossing ink,added Black embossing powder heated.

I then covered 3 inchies from matt board and added Tim Holtz tissue tape,randomly stamped over the tissue tape.I added grunge alphabet letters i then distressed and then added glossy accents to to give the shine on the letters.I stamped the Stampin Up ruler and bodice/mannequin from there new set "Sew Lovely"

The metal face was from esty,the lovely fringe trim was from Boyes dept store.I then Stamped Tim Holtz stamp in black memento and distressed cut up and arranged down the left handside of canvas.I added Kaiser craft pearls in colours to match background ,metal charm scissors and decorated pin which ive stuck into cotton reel die cut from cardboard.These where from Maya Road set Can't remember where i got this set from.

I found some yellowy gold glitter buttons so added them down the side to finish off.The flowers are made from material ive stuck onto a circle nestie die and gone round in circles with the material then added to a doiley i distresses with Spiced Marmalade.

Please check out the other Dt blogs for more inspiration

The tag i made to match.Used same technique and distress colours for back ground .Then stamped the sewing machine stamp randomly onto the tag in Tea dye(Doesnt show very well in photo)The flower is same technique as i used on the canvass one .The buttons come from my stash gold silver glitter ones.I used a Dynomo to get my sentiment Sew & Sew .Added the mannequin die cut which i added fibres round the body a metal feather that i dyed using Alcohol inks.Finished off with a crown charm on the top.Added the same fibers to the top of tag with a silver sewing machine charm from my stash.The flower is made of material stuck on to nestie circle same as the main canvas.These where from a PIF gift i received.This is also a PIF gift i shall be sending on.
