Grungeday - A Vintage Moment.

Good evening (well, over here),
If Grungy Monday was Grungy Thursday I'd be right on time, but I'd end up doing it Sunday so I'll just stick with calling it Grungeday...I hope you are all doing fine out there - in body, mind (he)art and soul. It's a busy old thing all this blogging frivolity...I love meandering through the streets of Blogland and wouldn't be without it but the logistics of getting it all from from my fingers to the screen can be a quite a task at times...  especially when Blogger fancies a foxtrot instead of doing it's thing. Anyway, enough of that and more of this...Over at Linda's we are delighting our selves in the joys and permanent finger staining qualities of Alcohol inks. Nice stunt-work from Mr. H here.
I was in a vintage mood which explains the romance, lace and  shabby green. I created three small tags to celebrate the beauty of a moment...

Alcohol inks dropped onto embossed metal is a favourite of mine. I also coloured a small frame, and cut a mica front to house these two lovebirds...she's blushing, but loving it too.





Just paper, ink and metal and a sentiment which is easy to stamp and a little harder to do...
Ah yes, the butterfly... stamped onto a glass fragment which I had first coloured with inks, creating a lighter pool with blending solution. I added a dictionary scrap definition of moment and a spinner because moments join together to create a journey. I cut a large tag shaped background which I stitched, stamped and distressed.
Another one for the collection, unless you might like to give it a home? I enjoyed making it but would enjoy it even more if I could make someone else happy with it. She's very petite. If you're into a little nostalgic green romance, let me know and I'll be more than happy to send her your way.

Also just letting you all know my new monthly inspirational feature, My Mojo Monthly started July the 1st. There's a great interview with Art Journal artist Kelly Kilmer, project ideas, great giveaways and a photo link to share your work! Do join in, I would love for you to call by and share your art and musings...



Thanks for being here - always glad to have people in my Bloghome.
See you soon,

Sarah.
