Chris put together some photos from a recent road trip with her family to create this lovely 5x7 Grungeboard album. Inking the Grungeboard element shapes using Colorbox Chalk inks and covering the pages of the album in SEI Dill Blossom papers, Chris kept a unified look throughout the album. She said the Grungeboard element shapes inked up beautifully and made terrific subtle embellishments for her album. Chris particularly loved the Tim Holtz journalling tickets which made writing down a few notes on the pages very easy. And the Adage tickets where great for pages where Chris didn't want to journal but wanted to convey a sentiment.
Carole created this very delicate blue and white layout using Tim Holtz Grunge Paper, and Grunge board Elements Stripes. The softness of the blue and white with the hint of black and the pretty Grunge Paper flowers is just beautiful.
Carole also used Tim Holtz Destress Ink "Broken China" for the touches of blue on the layout. Carole also embossed the Grunge paper and then inked over the top of the embossing, Carole did the same for the cut out flowers and Grunge Board Elements.
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist "Pearl" was sprayed over the layout to give it a slight sheen, and finished off with a couple of stamped butterflies using Pink Paislee Clear Stamps, and a little lace.
Suz created this layout using BasicGrey papers and lots of Tim Holtz’s gorgeous circle Fragments. Each ‘bauble’ received a different treatment, from backing in patterned paper and glittering to inking and Glimmer Misting. If you look carefully you can see the stitching running from the top of the page down to each Fragment to create the bauble’s string.
Suz used Grungepaper to create these lovely flower cards. Inspired by Windy Vecchi and her fabulous flowers, she first stamped onto the grungeboard with Stazon. They were then handcut, coloured with Distress Inks and Glimmer Mists and adhered to Heidi Swapp Invisibles cards. The fabulous Metal Foliage she has used can also be found in the Tim Holtz range.
When looking for creations using Tim Holtz products where better to go than the man himself! We are just awe-struck by this AMAZING grungeboard bracket album Tim has created! How fabulous does the ornate plate look amongst all the grunge accents that Tim has so expertly distressed?!!!
Thanks Tim for WOWing us with your work!
Audrey Underwood created this very unique creation with the Tim Holtz Grunge Paper, and as you can see the beautiful detail in this project is amazing. Audrey also used Grunge board - Stripes Elements, bookplate, Hambly pattern paper, Tattered Angels Glimmer mist – combinations of Graphite, Tattered Leather and Frost and Black cardstock.
Audrey did a transfer onto the Grunge paper (Little Girl) and then used her beautiful antique style to embellish this beautiful project, thank you so much Audrey for share this gorgeous project with us.
The lovely Jennifer Sweatman shares with us these three stunning cards created using various Tim Holtz products including grungeboard and distress inks. Here's a little word from Jenn on using Tim's products -
"Working with grungeboard and grungepaper is SO fun. They both take distress inks like a dream and are easy to shape to create dimension. Because it is thinner, grungepaper is ideal for stamping and cutting out small or intricate shapes- it is just like cutting cardstock and adding mediums like paint, stickles, glossy accents etc. is no problem because grungeboard and grungepaper are super sturdy."
Jenn, thank you so much for your stunning creations!
Really thinking outside the box we have this amazing mobile phone holder created by Mascha van Dijk Zimmerman. Mascha shows us that grungeboard goes way beyond just being used on scrapbooking pages. We love your innovation Mascha - THANK YOU!
