Distress Ink color blocking: Grungy Monday
Let's not go on and on about it this very second, but if you come back tomorrow afternoon you'll find a big thank you in the form of blog candy!
Until then ... we're talking about Studio L3's Grungy Monday ... on Friday! Woohoo!
OK, this week's Grungy Monday focuses on Tim Holtz's Distress Ink Color Blocking technique, and it is such fun!
Not only because, as with everything Tim does, it results in a very cool finished piece, but also because this one is dead simple.
It's alright friends. We can admit it: Occasionally Tim's techniques, well, until you've had a few hours to try and try again and go at it one more time ... it feels as if you'll never create anything that remotely resembles his example.
That does make sense since he's an expert, but it's still nice once-in-awhile to use a technique like Color Blocking that makes us all feel a bit of expertise.
My piece features seven Distress Ink colors, three lines of hand-sewn stitching, a fragment and Octopode's Steampunk Lady Audrey.
She was colored in an image-editing program and is showing off an uber-cool Glossy Accents mask lens.
Take yourself to Studio L3 to check out what Linda, the guest designers and participants from around the world have created!
And, as my Steampunk Audrey says, Pull yourself together! Make your own Color Blocking piece and then give us a peek!
