Discovering your Scrapbooking Style: Grungy

Grungy style has a vintage feel similar to Shabby Chic but with a harder edge to it that is not as feminine.  Tim Holtz is the king of this style and his products fit into it to a tee.  I don't think I've ever done a thing in this style, but I am officially inspired to try!

Some characteristics of Grungy Style
Blacks, Browns, Oranges, Grays or Deep Autumn Colors
Torn paper
Old book or music paper
Misting
Pirate themed embellishments
Maps
Textured papers
Embossing
Dark ink distressing
Slanted placement of pictures and papers
Little or no measuring or paper trimming required
