Girly Grunge!!

Those who know me well, know girly is not how I am usually described. Pink and frilly is just not me. Do I love pink? Absolutely, it's my favorite color. But my girly usually has a little edge to it. That's me!! Add some black or rough up the edges. That is my version of girly. A fabulous artist that I follow, Donna Salazar, calls it Girly Grunge. PERFECT!! Me to a T!! (Though the very sweet Donna spells it Girlie Grunge.)

I recently made a few online purchases to pick up a bunch of things I have never been able to find locally. My favorites were some fabulous Donna Salazar Designer Corrugated Embellies and stencils  from Want2Scrap.

For my second Design Team Project for Genuinely Jane Studios, I decided to pair all of my fun Donna Salazar products with a Genuinely Jane Studios Picket Fence album. This gorgeous piece is what I lovingly call my Girly Grunge Gate!!

  • A little about Genuinely Jane Studios:
