Grungeboard Series!!!

No, you are not seeing things, it is time for my Grungeboard Series! So, first let me tell you a bit about how this week will work. I will begin with an intro video explaining things and also a video about the basic differences between chipboard, grungeboard and grungepaper. Then, each day will have technique videos. Some days will have just one, some days, two. I will have pictures of all the completed pieces on my blog each day - just in case the video quality doesn't show them well enough. Bear with me in regards to the videos - I am not great at editing and some may not have intros or a goodbye but the goods are there! Any questions about them - please just leave me a comment or send me an e-mail at

I would love it if you all try some of these techniques and leave a comment telling me where to find the pictures. Play along with me!

I will be demoing the techniques on pieces of grungeboard, all pieces are from the Plain shapes Grungeboard pack. These will all be combined into an awesome cover for a mini I am making about my Tim Holtz obsession. I will also be using some of these techniques on the pages of the mini along with Tim Holtz Lost and Found paper stack.

On August 31st, my birthday, I have a gift for you as well. I will share the prepped mini and also share my Blogiversary giveaway. this giveaway will only be for my Blog comments since it is a Blogiversary thing!

I hope you have as much fun with this series as I did making it. My hands are inky, are yours???

Here is the Basics Video as promised! See you tomorrow for some technique videos!
