Grungy Monday Challenge

Linda Ledbetter invited me to be a guest designer for a challenge on her Studio L3 blog. My task was to create something using a technique designed by Tim Holtz. His design is from the 12 Tags of Christmas 2009. You can visit his blog here: If you are not familiar with Tim Holtz, you should be, he's an amazing artist/designer/writer/businessman with some of the best craft products on the planet. I'm in a group of over 2,500 artists called All Things Tim. Here's the link:

Here is my design ~ A little book of Butterflies using layered papers, collage techniques, metals, embossing powders, stamping, ribbons, and a dash of inspiration. I chose Butterflies, red, black and brass.

Please visit Inge Bekaert's awesome blog. Inge is also a guest designer this week.

Linda Ledbetter hosts the most amazing challenges, you can visit her blog here:

The best part about some of the challenges I've been participating in, is cost effectiveness. If you don't have the exact supplies, it's okay to make substitutions. You are not required to use the exact stamps or papers or bling suggested by the challenge coordinators or designers. Use the supplies you have, try to achieve the same look. Put your own 'spin' on it, think out of the box! Be yourself! Be creative!

Thank you for stopping by ~ have a creative day!
