Threads - Grungy Monday 09

'Threads' by Sue Smith

Well I've literally left this to the last minute (or hour)... I've been sick in bed for two days... not the nicest way to spend a long weekend, so I'm hoping I can manage a little creative time today.  And Grungy Monday was on the top of the list of things to work on!

Anyway, Grungy Monday 09 is all about Tim Holtz' technique, often called 'Shabby Chic'.  The best thing about GM's challenges is that I'm trying new techniques on a regular basis - all good fun!  Being a total fan fo all things Shabby Chic, I'm sure glad I managed to participate in this challenge!

I skipped step one of the technique because I didn't have a pitch black paint dabber and have just used black card as Tim suggests as an alternative.  All stamped images are by Tim Holtz and the ruler is from a collage sheet by ARTchix Studios.

I REALLY need to get stitching. Love this shade of blue too. More fab work. Hope you are now better (always seems to happen that ay, like your body knows it has extra time to be poorly).
