I made these atcs for the Grungy Monday Challenge using Tim Holtz's technique for alcohol ink plaid background. When I first seen this technique I thought it looked pretty cool but when I went to try it myself I just couldn't get the plaid to turn out as good as he does it. I used Tim Holtz and Cherry Pie Stamps for these. Sorry the pics aren't the greatest, the glossy cardstock made it difficult to get a clear pic without too much glare.

I am going to try nad upload more of my scrapbook layouts so I thought I would start with the one I made recently. This is a picture of my niece and for the layout I used a sketch found at http://sketchsavvy.blogspot.com/2012/03/sketch-73-12-x12.html
This sketch was made for a 12x12 page but I mostly make 8x8 so I sized down the sketch to fit mine.
The paper I used is from My Mind's Eye and I used 3 Tim Holtz Dies: Mini Rosette, Vintage Market Alphabet, and Vintage lace. I cut the vintage lace strip from white cardstock and using a mini mister filled with Spun Sugar Distress ink, I sprayed the die cut. I love how this turned out and wish my camera would pick up the pretty pinks and glitter.

I made this for the Grungy Monday challenge at http://studiol3.blogspot.com/2012/03/grungy-monday-38.html using Tim Holtz's technique found here http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2007/12/its-day-2-of-12.html Not sure if I like how this turned out or not but at least I gave it a try.

For the background I took printed paper from the DCWV Mariposa stack and using the Tim Holtz flourish mask and blending tool I colored over the mask with Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters Distress inks. I just painted the butterflies black with acrylic paint and then did the mosaic with paper from K&CO Que Sera Sera paper. I didn't have glossy accents so I used the Crackle Accents over the mosaic pieces. For the dangly charm, I took glass pearls and colored them with alcohol inks and attached them to a lobster claw clasp.
