Grungy Monday #2

Okay, so really need to figure out why this keeps happening----images I have rotated in Photoshop won't upload to blogger that way---they revert back to sideways (as the picture was taken).  If anyone knows how to remedy this I sure would appreciate it if you would email me.

This is for the new blog challenge Grungy Mondays hosted by Linda over at StudioL3.  This challenges are done using the the influence of Tim Holtz whether it by techniques, products, ideas or sheer inspiration from him.  This particular project is linked to a video of Tim demo-ing a technique for Ranger.  To see the video click here.

For this technique my images didn't show up all that well.  Think I used a bit too much Matte Multi Medium.  Used what I created to enhance this card I made for my hubby's bday tomorrow.  If you look close enough you can see on the ripped text paper a steampunk like image to the right on a small ruler image on the ripped piece on the left.  I used packaging from one of Tim's idea-ology products to create the pocket watch to make it 3D.

Deanna, it's bug in the Blogger software, and it's SO frustrating! There's a workaround, though: Go into your blogger photo album at Picasaweb dot com (where all blogger photos live) and rotate the photo there. It's an extra step, but it works like a charm!

Fortunately, you art is gorgeous not matter WHICH end is up, and this piece is no exception. The resist looks awesome-- subtle and pretty-- and the colors are just beautiful. I love the dimensional pocket watch.

Happy birthday to your man!
