Good morning!I love grungy layouts…I like looking at them and I really like creating them.  Luckily for me I have two boys so I can create grungy masculine layouts!

 I love all the steampunk and grungy chipboard I can get from Creative Embellishments….right up my alley!
I used some more of the cotton candy dreams paper from 7 Dots Studio – I LOVE this paper!


I added lots of texture and highlights to my chipboard pieces.  For the paint splats and drips I started by adding natural sand medium with a paint brush, then sprayed a few dark grey and black mists.  I added some grey ink, some black stickles then finally I added some mica fragments.


 Now for the title piece ‘Working Hard‘ and Grunge Gear Corner I started off the same way as the other chipboard – sand medium, sprays and ink…but then I used some copper paint that I used my finger to brush on and highlight.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I inspired you to get a little grungy!
