It's Cathy here sharing a masculine grunge layout created with gorgeous chipboard, a stencil and mediums from The Dusty Attic.
"Enjoy The Journey"
To create my background, I have mixed the Dusty in Colour - Gingernut with gel medium to create a coloured texture paste. I then masked my patterned paper with the Distressed Diamonds stencil using the gingernut texture paste. Once dry, I randomly stamped over the background, then used the Dusty in Colour - Clear Gloss Varnish to randomly apply some copper Mica Flakes to give my background an aged look.
Barb Wire Frames chipboard... omg just perfect for masculine layouts!! You get 4 frames of various sizes in this set, and I have used the 2nd and 3rd largest on my layout.
To give chipboard frames an aged grungy feel, I altered them, by first coating with Dusty in Colour - Hot Chocolate, then whilst the paint was still wet I randomly sprinkled with Stampendous Aged Copper embossing powder and heat set.
Cog Cluster chipboard, which I cut into 2 pieces and painted with Dusty in Colour - Faded Denim. Once dry, I coated with the Dusty in Colour Clear Gloss Varnish and whilst wet sprinkled with blue Glitter Glass. To tie in with the vintage feel I have altered the chipboard cogs with some Tim Holtz and Prima Mechanicals brads. I used the same process on the Blueprint JOURNEY chipboard word.
Here are all the Dusty Attic goodies I have used to create my layout all available from The Dusty Attic On-Line Store.
