Girly Grunge

Happy New Year everyone! Wow 2012 already and it is already a busy year. Holidays are winding down, the company is gone home and I am back to work now. I even got to scrap a bit yesterday I was going into withdrawals I think hehe! I am super excited today to share that I was chosen as featured member this month at the Donna Salazar Girly Grunge site..woo hoo! I made these two projects last month and just realised that I totally forgot to post them here. One is a canvas, my first altered canvas and the other is a card. I have used lots of Donna Salazar goodies on both of them.


First is the canvas. This was so much fun to make. For the background I used lots of gesso, the Prima brick mask and mists. This project is loaded with Dusty Attic chippys too. The title, the corner scrolls, leaves, the cogs, the key on the bottom flower section, and the wings behind the dress form.

Here is a close up of the cogs and the dress from. I dressed her up with real jean and some hand dyed silk on top.

Here is a close up of the title section. The top chippy is stamped and then I added some inks and crackle accents to it.

Love this flower cluster and I added in some tied up button, a DA key, some jewels and DA leaves.


For the card I used all DS papers and did lots of distressing. I tucked in some Dusty Attic chicken wire with the hand dyed crinkle seam binding and added some butterflies and bling to it. The quote is on a velum piece that I have distressed some.

Ok well that it is for today……I have a couple more announcements this month and I can share them with you soon!  I hope that 2012 brings nothing but joy to you all!  Have a fantastic week!  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J

I LOVE your grungy stuff. It kind of takes me back to the 70's - raggy jeans and flowers in your hair. :) Am I imagining things or did you do your canvas on the back instead of the front. Love it and love the little bits of jean you have added to both projects.
