Hello, my dear friends, and happy last week of 2011! I hope you're all enjoying a truly wonderful holiday season. Grungy Monday 30 is one of those "Let your imagination run wild!" challenges. Just create anything your heart desires using:
Tim Holtz's Tissue Wrap and Tape!
Yep, the only rule is that you use Tim's wonderful new Tissue Wrap from his District Market line, OR Idea-ology Tissue Tape... or both. If you haven't yet played with the Tissue Wrap, holy cow, you're in for a treat. I love, LOVE this stuff! It's an elegant, semi-sheer tissue paper, but with a lot more heft than the uber-fragile stuff that rips if you breathe on it the wrong way. This tissue wrap can be colored, die cut, crumpled again and again, glued down and manipulated, all without tearing.
Case in point: I colored Tissue Wrap with various shades of Alcohol Ink, crumpled it up so I could swipe some Gold Mixative over the wrinkles, flattened it out and die cut the Tattered Florals, stacked 'em, twisted 'em, floofed 'em-- and they held up beautifully to all that abuse.
The background is also Tissue Wrap, and it was inked, then wrinkled up and pressed onto a piece of heavy card stock I'd coated with Glue 'n Seal. You can create some awesome texture this way, and it's so quick and easy!
To be eligible to win the awesome $25 shopping spree from Simon Says Stamp, create your own work of art using one or more of Tim's tissue products. When you're ready, upload your finished piece to your own blog or public image-hosting site, then add it to this post using the InLinkz link below. Please remember to include a link to www.timholtz.com AND to www.simonsaysstamp.com in your blog post or photo description. :)
Remember to share your photo at the All Things Tim group, too! Lovely List Mom, Gloria, has a special album just for your Grungy Monday masterpieces! If you're not already a member of this talented, supportive group of Tim fans, be sure to join!
Okay, guys, that's the lowdown for the final Grungy Monday of the year! Have an awesome week, and I'll look forward to seeing your wonderful creations!
