Grunge Mondays- week #1, Day #10, 2008

I had to work  a split-shift today so made the most of it by making my Grunge Monday tag for the first week of Linda's new challenge over at Studio3. We are going to be making something each week following the instructions for Tim Holtz's "12 Tags of Christmas." Each Monday, Linda will tell us which one to follow and we make our take on it following the technique he outlines for us. It is so much fun. We just finished doing his whole book in random fashion, making one project eahc week until we did them all. We all learned so much and made so many new friends online. I hope you will join us. Thank you Linda for keeping us motivated and Tim for all of your generous sharing of your talents and knowledge. This week we are doing Day # 10 from 2008. I used the new Wild West set and wanted to incorporate the Wild West words and handguns from it, so I got out my shrink plastic and it worked great! Perfect size and glued them down using glossy accents. I stamped the Salloon onto the grungeboard for the technique. I really liked how it turned out.

Oooooh... now I want to go pull out shrink plastic and play! This tag came out great, Kathy. I also really like the way you used the jump rings to highlight a few stars.

Out of all the new stamp sets, I decided I would never really use this one! Not I regret that decision after looking at your totally fun and awesome tag. Love the SP guns!

Kathy, I LOVE this Wild West-themed tag! What a clever approach to the Grungy Monday technique, and what a fabulous design you've created! John Wayne would be proud to see this, I think. The shrink plastic worked beautifully.

I'm so glad you joined in! I'm looking forward to doing LOTS of fun, Tim-related challenges with you.
