Featuring Special Guest Star Designers
Happy almost-June, blog friends! I hope you're enjoying a wonderful 3-day weekend, or if, like me, you're working today, that you'll find a way to treat yourself (I recommend chocolate, but that's just me...).
Your watercolor stamped art last week was fantastic, and I had a great time visiting your blogs. I know I say this every week, but you guys are SO talented it blows my mind! I learn so much from you every week, and I'm very grateful for the opportunity to admire your work.
This week, we're heading back to December, 2007, for an easy and probably very familiar technique from the very first 12 Tags series:
You've probably seen this technique referred to as "Shabby Chic," and that really is the perfect description of the effect it offers. It's fab for greeting cards and ATCs, but as this week's designers demonstrate here, it's awesome for three-dimensional pieces and wall art, too!
A round of applause for Kaz and Jennie, yes? They ROCKED this technique!
Here's my own piece. I went tropical. Imagine listening to Jimmy Buffet and sipping a pina colada while viewing this. Yep, I'm really, REALLY sick of cold, gray weather.
Please click here for a list of the products I used.
Ready to get your shabby chicness on? Cool, because I can't wait to see this week's submissions! When you've completed your piece, use the InLinkz button at the end of this post to add your image to the collection. You'll need to have a blog or an online, public photo album in order to participate.
Please remember, you must credit Tim Holtz for the technique and include a link to his website in your blog post or photo comments section. Submissions that don't meet this requirement will be removed.
Don't forget to add your photo to the Grungy Monday album at All Things Tim! List Mom Gloria and the awesome artists there are waiting to see your masterpiece. If you're not part of this fabulously supportive and talented group of artists, run over there and join up!
I hope you all have a wonderful, creative week!
