More Than Words September challenge

This month's challenge at More Than Words is using one of my
favourite techniques - GRUNGE!!
I love getting messy in my art - that's half the fun!

The other criteria for the challenge is to use the word 'FEARLESS'.

I love creating grungy masculine pages, but for this challenge I decided to do something a bit different and create some girl grunge!!

To create my grungy background I made some prints using my gel plate. I really love how the plate creates a distressed print. 
I then ripped up those pages, added some stamping, stencilling and splatters of gesso.

I matted my photo with some glitter foam and hessian
to add some different textures.

I used embellishments from D-lish Scraps,
Kit The Habit and The Resin Rainbow.
I also added some Tim Holtz quote stickers. 

I added some thread, a Charm's Creations arrow and a flair from Flutterby Designs for some more texture.
