Grunged Art

I was playing with some new plain Grungeboard from Betsy over at Innovative Stamp Creations - little did I know when I started this that it would also work for today’s Way to Use It challenge over at SCS found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=353309 .


Grunged Art:


I always need a place to store web site information. The inside of the album has tables for sites, information and passwords.


This mini album is made with plain Grungeboard cut in half. The boarder is the Drunken Scotch technique - this feels like tooled leather. The center is chipboard covered with Gesso, inked and then stamped. This is my first attempt at a real collage piece - overall I like the effect - The different inks, paper piecing and the copper embossing. If I was to do this one over again I would use a few less stamps… I think it’s a little busy… But overall I really like it!


Sewing (see I said I was on a kick here), beads wired on (that’s the challenge component) and ribbon finish the cover of this album.


Inside there are two pockets:

Hope you are having fun creating today!
