Your Style

I have created a unique style for myself. I like to call it "glamor grunge." Alliteration and contrast, love it! Basically it's distressing a project but using sparkly elements, girly stuff, elegant swirls, etc. Here are a few examples of this style:

"Create" Altered Puzzle Piece
Products used: card stock, wood mounted diamond stamp, red ink,
white yarn, Tim Holtz grungeboard Elements Plain, Christmas Red Stickles,
Tim Holtz Picket Fence Crackle Paint, Tim Holtz black Distress Stickles,
Tiny Type alphabet, two rhinestones

"Visualizing Music"
I created this for a mini album featuring my art. I distressed this by using a
"grungy" image, tearing black paper to mat the photo, using black ink
to smudge the edges of the page, and used Walnut ink to grunge up
the flowers. Adding in the rhinestones and color helps "glamor" it up a bit.

"Maeven Electric"
Also for my mini album. The background and paper are what mostly
make this "grunge," as well as the hastily drawn faux stitching. I also
distressed the pink flower a bit.

I encourage everyone to try and create a unique style of their own. It doesn't mean each thing you create will look the same, it just means it will have your "signature" look to it. And that's a good thing.

Wow I sound like Martha Stewart..."it's a good thing." Off to do some insider stock trading! (Ok that really wasn't funny, but I try).
