Grungy Monday #01 Fly

It's finally here; sharing my tag using the techniques for the first Grunge Monday from Studio L3 and inspired by Tim Holtz
Here is my challenge using the techniques from 2008 12 Days of Christmas but making it my own.
I went over the 200 characters in labels and didn't get to add all the supplies.
Black Embossing powder and heat  tool was used on bird. The townscape image was made using a mask from that die.

My Grandparents

This is a card to share on my blog today. The photo of my grandparents was made with an image transfer on mica. The letter is a copy from grandfather to my grandmother. And a copy of their marriage licenses. Key and heart from my stash of supplies.
I love to use my family photos with my projects. My grandparents had this photo made around their first anniversary; they sold a bedroom suite with marble top in exchange for this photo.

Handmade Book

I've spent the last few days looking through some of my older artwork I made before I had a blog. These are my favorite pages from my book. I used a variety of supplies and stamps from my stash on this book.

We could make a tag, card or 4 x 4". I made a tag; requirments were using two pieces of cardstock, 3 pieces of designer paper, a flourish, 2 brads, distressing my piece, ribbon, button, border and flower. The flower die cut was made from vintage fabric. The sweet little girl image is my stash.

Design Details

I used both of the techniques found on page 67 for CCC #35 challenge. The black trim below is from Silhouette Digital Machine. Stamp from B Line Designs. The remainder of supplies from Ranger and Tim Holtz. This is the last challenge from Tim's Compendium of Curiosities but not the last time I'll use these techniques. I started in September so I have a few of the techniques to complete and will do those as I have time to do so.
Thanks for following me through all these techniques.

Dimensional Collage Fragments

I've added this tag to Simon Say Stamp Show and All Things Tim yahoo group.
It also fits CCC#34 challenge over on Studio L3 blog.
I had an idea a few days ago but didn't get a chance to get it together until this evening.
I picked hollywood raffia to lace in and out of the cage. The square fragment, die cut, muse token, ball chain, dabber, distress ink, glossy accents, archival ink are from T!M and Ranger.
Other supplies used; scrap from music sheet, previous stamped and cut-out images from IBFS, dollar stamp and a portion of die cut.
I completed this tag using a technique from Tim's book on page 63 and page 33.
