Grungy Monday at L3

Yes, I know it's saturday; it's been one of those weeks where organisational skills have departed. Still here is my tag for this, the FIRST week of replacement therapy for all us Compendium of Curiosities Challenge fans that is to be known as Grungy mondays; hosted by Linda at Studio L3 all based on Tim Holtz techniques.
 The photo doesn't show it but the perfect pearls gives a lovely green shimmer to the skull.
 Gold two tone embossing powder for the ART, two tone for the stamping on the skull too. Used tissue tape instead of music. Masking is a barb wire.
I tried to be different but used all the techniques that Tim used in the inspiration piece that we are to use as our starting point. Click Here to go to it.
Enjoy your weekend and hope you have some creative time. Be blessed....

Good to hear someone else is as disorganised as me. Great design and colour combo, liking the two tone effect on the lettering.

"Replacement therapy!" I like it!

Neil, as always, you've created an amazing work of grungy, gorgeous art, and your re-invention of Tim's tag is wonderful. The rich colors and bold imagery is awesome, and I love the little crown on the skull! Clever work, my friend!

Thanks so much for being part of the Grungy Monday kickoff. I can't wait to see what you do next week!
