Back in the Craftavan

Finally, I have unpacked my craftacase and stored my lovely little craft bits and pieces away in my craftavan again. I hadn't made anything for weeks, and I really really needed to get creative again, even if it meant only making a tag and some ATCs.

I had missed so many Tag Tuesday tags but I was determined to make this week's tag with the theme 'On the Ocean Wave' -




I also made the ATCs for the July swap over at Kimberly's ArtJoyStuff blog. The theme for July is GRUNGE, Tim Holtz Style. Huuuuge challenge for me, as I am not really sure of the definition of grunge and not really very familiar with TH style either. Nor do I have any of this stuff ( oh, apart from inks that is ). Not sure whether I got it right, but I like the ATCs anyway, lol. I used very grungy backgrounds, grungy colours, and bits and pieces similar to what TH seems to use -









I grunged up little envelopes for the ATCs -



and now they are on their way to Kimberly.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,

Gorgeous sea themed tag dear Liz! And your grunge atc's are beautiful as well. I think you did really well on the theme there. Love how you grunged up the envelopes too. I saw you purchased one of Suzy's kits. They're wonderful aren't they? Looking foward to seeing what you will create with these beautiful pieces! Wishing you a relaxed weekend, xx

A very beautiful sea tag Liz and some wonderful ATC's, love that you have used male images, most people use female images in art pieces.
