Grungy with Attitude!

Hello again everyone....I am back again with another layout to share for the August Kaisercraft Saturday sketch...using lots of papers & diecuts from the Kaisercraft Attitude range :)...plus a few pieces of 2crafty chipboard!

I'd also like to welcome & thank all my new followers...I'm so glad that you've decided to follow my blog :)

Ok, on with the layout.
Here is the August #1 sketch....




And here is what I've created.....


I've used Attitude papers & diecut pieces from the collectables pack...along with the 2crafty "Rockstar" title that was first run through my cuttlebug using an embossing folder...then it has many layers of gesso, ink, mists, gesso...and more mists, then a final dabbing coat of gesso.




I really don't think I could replicate this process again...lol.  As I said, it has many layers that changed from one look to another...but this is the end process & I think it looks pretty grungy to fit in with the rest of the layout & I'm quite happy with how it turned out :)



The Stars are also 2crafty....One I have dabbed with texture paste/Mist (the same mixture that I used for the background template work), the other is painted in gesso with a light spray of GM...and the 3rd one is painted in GM & then lightly misted in white mist.  The centre star I left raw.  I love how the stars formed a great little cluster to fit in with the sketch :)

I haven't created a male/grungy layout for quite a while...so this felt a little out of my comfort zone - I must be a tad out of practice when it comes to male layouts!  lol

Thanks so much for dropping by!  xx

It really does have a strong male vibe...& the stars do look good up there. Love that mustard colour on the bg. He looks like he's concentrating hard on playing, too!!!
