Good morning!

I LOVE doing layouts that are grungy!

Luckily I have a son who often supply photo opportunities perfect for this style!  He loves to build bikes especially choppers and muscle bikes!


I started by covering the paper with clear gesso then crackle paste and texture paste!


I took some texture paste and colored it with Brusho dark brown powder and used the brick stencil.  I used a mixture of embossing powders on the wet texture paste then heat set.

I then colored the background paper with different mists till I was happy


I also used the distressed corner stamp


I painted the Flourish 2 black then added some gold mist


I painted the Metal Panel black then added terra cotta embossing powder and heat set

 I also painted some gears of different sizes and brick pieces for accents


I painted the Word License plate and added vintage gold embossing powder
To finish the layout I added some flowers and seed beads accented with  gold and copper paints.

Thanks so much for stopping by
