Hi everyone, I'm back to share my 3rd layout as guest designer for The Scrapbook Store - using FabScraps "Wild at heart" range.
I've gone for a real grungy feel for this layout, and have based it on this months sketch over at Scrap Africa, sketch challenge #21....
I have added a bit of template work on the background to help break up the dark brown, plus sprayed a few random squirts of white Dylusions ink spray as well. Pic is of my DS a few years ago, when he was first hooked on motocross....alls he did was, as the title suggests, Eat - Sleep - Ride
Here is the sketch...
And as you can see, I've stuck fairly well to the sketch, just reducing the size of the angled pieces at the top & bottom...plus I added some layers in under the photos.
Here is my cluster of cogs....The FabScraps chipboard cogs I have left one raw and covered the other with Distress Glitter, which I have then cut in half & used in separate places on the page. Both pieces are from the Cog border piece, and I have cut the cogs out from the centre, rather than using it as a full piece - I'm never too scared to cut my chipboard pieces! The Metal cogs are Prima Finnabair Mechanicals. I've also added in some messy strands of cotton to add a little more interest & texture to the page.
Here you can see some more cotton strands, plus a bit of the template work.
Journalling on the diecut tag that slips in under one of the layers.
Here you can see the template work a bit better. I've used Crafters Workshop - Stacked Triangles with modelling paste & then I've heat embossed on top, which has given a really unusual texture
(it's a bit hard to see it in the photos though)
And here is an overall close up.
Although I have a super busy few weeks ahead before going away, I still have a few more projects planned using this range - so I will be back shortly to share them....then I'm afraid my lil ol blog is going to be quiet for quite a few weeks.
Anyways....thanks so much for visiting today :) xx
