3rd layout using FabScraps as GD for The Scrapbook Store - Scrap Africa sketch # 21


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

Everyting in between is just gone! Anyhow, came to tell you what a fab cool page this is. As Bente says, really digging your grungier side! Mwah mwah mwah!
