Dimensionally Grungy!




Hello again fellow crafters!! This week for Grungy Monday, our fearless leader Linda at Studio L3 has led us to, what I felt was quite a fearsome challenge! Tim Holtz's Technique challenge from May, 2008., involves adding dimension to your scrapbook pages, cards, and ATC's. His blog had many steps, so I copied and pasted away first thing Monday and came home with a novella, of sorts! LOL! Our Guest Designers did a great job, and Helen said if she could do it, anyone could, so with that, and a day off from work, which is usually very motivating, I boldly stepped into the stamp room--with not a clue in my head!


I re-read said novella, and thought..small might be good here. So an ATC it is---Oh, oh, oh....I have the 7 Gypsies ATC tray...I am now going to use that for my Grungy Monday projects! It's a tad larger than true ATC's, but no matter. AND!!! I have some double thick foam from doing the masks from our first challenge, which worked brilliantly! Next...what to use for the insert?? Found this little wire-wrapped rock which has been in my stash since FOREVER! Some sheet music tissue paper was still out on

my desk, and WHAM! Done!! I don't think I've ever pulled a project together so quickly--I think my muse either collapsed or ran away, as the rest of the afternoon was a complete bust--but, overall, I'm happy with my first go-round with this technique!! Of course this is a two week technique--(maybe thats why I was done so quickly! LOL!) so I may try something else later.



So, Don't be daunted by all the steps!! Go visit Linda's, see what everyone else has done, go re-visit Tim's blog, and then jump into a new dimension! Have a great week everyone!
