Grungy Monday #14 times 2!

Had to practice with the dabber paint resist one more time from Grungy Monday #14! Check out the how to video from Mr. Holtz, who is such an inspiration. For the resist I used the champagne bottles from the Gatsby collection at Artistic Outpost! One of my blogging friends, Lucy, is to blame for my interest in "shrink plastic." I decided to shrink some champagne bottles and the great car that is part of this set. I really like the little tiny embellishments! This was really a lot of fun!

Well this is a little later than I had planned, because we were scrapping up tile (not me).  I did have to supervise!!  Thanks for visiting and have a great rest of the weekend!

Terry, I have to say that Gatsby is looking fabulous.
Two favourites - the other day the amazing Flappers and now the guy from one of my all time favourite books. You have certainly made my weekend with such artwork on display.
