GPP Street Team Monthly Crusade- “Grids”

So this month the challenge was to work with grids.  Love ’em–they offer structure and yet you can make them any which way.  NO RULES!!!!  So, here are my 2 finished works…have a third that is still in progress, but wanted to make the July 1 deadline :).

This first one is in my journal and I just used Japanese paper tape to create an asymmetrical grid.  Then I went about filling the segments with all kinds of little things–punched shapes, grunge board shapes, a tiny tag, brads, and then gel crayons and touches of silver marker.

This second one is on watercolor paper and I used a handpainted/printed paper cut into strips to delineate the symmetrical grid.  In each segment I played with some paint, gel pens, graphite pencil, and more of the same paper.

Lots of fun! TFL.

Saturday Lot’s To Do…on Sunday

Saturday “Lot’s to Do” Challenge asked for tags in non-traditional tag shapes.  I had made these yesterday, but too much to do kept me from posting.   Today, I should be writing a paper, so of course I have time to post…lol.

I happen to have made the backgrounds in my journal for use at a later date, but thought the tags looked good on them…the second one perhaps the background is too busy, but such it life…too busy sometimes.

Back to writing my paper :0(
