Week 1 Grungy Monday

This is the first week of the new Tim Holtz tag challenge called Grungy Monday being hosted by Studio L3. If you are a Tim Holtz tag fan check it out and come play with us.

This is my submission to the challenge. I really have fun making my tags! Tim Holtz is an awesome artist and makes all his techniques so doable! This weeks challenge had to do with 12 Tags of Christmas, 2008, Tag 10! We were to look for inspiration and take the process and make it our own. This tag has masking and other fun stuff to do! I think my masking was not well done so after the third try making the tag I took it and dry embossed with a folder over the masking part and distressed it. I like the look but I will try again later and post it but I was running against the clock being the procrastinator I am.

Hope you like it. I am looking forward to hearing what this weeks challenge is.

UPDATE!!! Found out what I need to do to keep the masked part very clear and visual. I will try again and post it under the update!


  1. I like it! Great idea to cover it with the plastic... have to remember that.

  2. Vickie, this tag is absolutely gorgeous!!! I love the embossing you added, and the way you colored the bird and butterfly is fabulous. What a gorgeous debut for Grungy Monday, and I really appreciate your joining in!


I would really love to hear what you think about my art and my posts. Please leave me a comment and let me know! Thanks for visiting my blog. Vickie aka Okienurse
