GM #16 Grungeboard (or Grungepaper) Extravaganza

This week StudioL3's challenge for Grungy Monday was to create something using Grungepaper or Grungeboard as the predominate element in a project.  We could use any technique we wanted.  If you need inspiration or instructions a fabulous place to go is to the King of Grunge . . . Tim Holtz' blog where you will find scores of ideas.  There are links to his archives on his left sidebar and a link to video demos on the right sidebar.

I decided (finally) on making a post-it note holder along with a grunge rose. . .

Last week (GM 15) I only got as far as creating what turned out to be a background for the challenge.  I am happy to say I completed the piece and it is now residing at its new home.

My chiropractor has this AWESOME machine, which has some name I can never remember because I always call it "Thumper".  They always laugh when I ask if I get Thumper.  Now everyone is going to call it Thumper because I made a sign to hang on it!

I found a digital coloring page for Thumper and paper pieced it together, all 25 pieces!   This the AWESOME machine with it's name tag and the FABULOUS Theresa!

Hope you have a great week!

  1. Very cool! The Thumper story is hilarious, but the name tag is awesome!

  2. Grunge paper.......... the material stuff I like. AND........ you made a ROSE with it!!!! LOL I love the name you gave to Thumper. I rename stuff all the time, but it is especially fun when OTHERS start using the name you gave to something!
