Soar Journal

Pin It!

I created this journal for the Grungy Monday challenge that Linda from Studio L3 is hosting. It is an ongoing challenge that if you love to learn Tim Holtz's techniques this is the place to be! This weeks challenge is on Distress Ink with Studio Multi Medium! Love this technique! Since I have done all 4 years of Tim's Christmas Tags and all the Compendium of Curiousities challenges in tags. I figure I have enough tag inspiration for a while. LOL Most of the Grungy Monday techniques are probably ones I have already done in my tags and I'm quickly running out of space. LOL. I am going to create a usable piece of art. Like a journal, cards, pendant, etc. Who knows what I will come up with. Some of them may be cards that I send to Operation Write Home, some I may give as gifts and some I may place for sale in my Etsy store. So if you see something you like, let me know. Don't get me wrong, I'm not looking to get rich or anything. LOL I would like to share my art with others and I do need to support my crafting habit somehow. What better way than by doing what I love, right?

That is great - and I didn't even realize the wing wrapped around...was to busy looking at the background effect! But the wing wrapped was definitely perfect!

So this idea....thank you for sharing...

Christie, you've made magic again, girl! This is such a sweet, lovely work of art, and your GM technique couldn't be better. The little queen of birds is TOO CUTE! Love her. Love the entire piece, actually, and it makes a fabulous journal cover!

Love how you have decorated this - I love the sewing theme and yours is very effective. April 12, 2011 at 5:16 PM  

Must be something about us fashion design majors, that we are always drawn to dress forms! I love this journal and have been looking at the TH dress form stamp! Did you see my latest layout with a dress form (it's at my blog)? Hope you are well and that we can get in some scrapping before school lets out!
