Small but grungy!

Perhaps some of you know this by now, if not - here's my confession: I'm not a fan of small forms...
Which is an understatement really. ;) Somehow I don't feel I can spread my wings on small surfaces. Large canvases? Yes, please!!! But cards, ATCs, tags...hm...not really my cup of tea - as much as I love tea. ;)
But from time to time I get an assignment to create something small and I must say it is a challenge but hey, don't you love a good one? This is actually one of the best ways to test yourself or to break out of a creative rut - to try something different from your ordinary ways - a colour that you don't usually use, a new tool, or - there we go - a size that we don't usually work with. I think it might be refreshing.
Today I would like to show you some works that I created for Sizzix with Flora Grande Collection by Prima Marketing ( yes, they did it!) - and here comes some good news - you can make them too! It's just enough to hop on this site, sign up and enjoy all the detailed downloads that will guide you to create some deliciously grungy small forms. :)
All the projects are based on my Sunrise Sunset collection.

So...darling readers... are you ready to challenge yourself?
How about trying something different today?
