Today’s steal, the Tim Holtz Grungeboard sets, have got to be one of the most unique, fun and innovative scrapbooking products available.
You may be asking yourself, “what do I do with Grungeboard?” Well, if you can dream it, you can do it! One of the beauties of Grungeboard is the sturdiness of it. Being as it is “a compressed, flexible sheet of dingy material that can be painted, inked, sanded, hammered or grunged,” your creative options are pretty wide open.
One of the easiest ways to dress up the Grungeboard to match your project is with ink. Simply take the ink pad and brush it along the top of the Grungeboard piece until the desired color is achieved. While you could use any type of ink pad, the pigment ink is a little richer and tends to color easier. Just be sure to allow drying time.
One of my favorite techniques to do to anything is to add glitter. I love the little spritz of shimmer and shine it adds to a project and glitzing up Grungeboard with a little sparkle is no different. To adhere the glitter to Grungeboard you can either use a glue pad or use spray adhesive to coat the topside of the Grungeboard and then sprinkle with glitter.
Another fun technique is to cover the Grungeboard with flocking. You can do this in the same fashion as glitter, but sprinkle with flocking instead.
I decided to see how Glimmer Mists would work with the Grungeboard. They are moisture resistant so I wasn’t quite sure how it would work out. I had to use my heating tool to help speed along the drying process, but quite liked the look of the “grungy” final product.
You could also stitch Grungeboard or add eyelets or it even looks great left raw.
Here is a layout that I created awhile back and thought the Grungeboard skull was the perfect finishing touch for my page.
Have a fantastic weekend! See you on Monday for Monday Card Madness.
