My Love

Remember THIS layout? The one I made after being inspired by Finnabair (Anna Dąbrowska -Pękocka). She makes amazing grungy layouts and I have been trying to figure out how she does it. At first I thought she used gesso and so that's what I used. It turned out that I was wrong because the finished effect didn't look like what it's supposed to. But at least I found a new technique. 

Two days ago, I saw on Live With Prima on Ustream that Finnabair made a tutorial video of her special grungy technique. It was amazing to see all the little details in her work - the masking, the misting of 5 Glimmer Mist colours and the 4 different types of stamps she used just to make the background. After that came the embellishment arranged around the photo and so on and so forth. 

Of course I just HAD to try making a layout. I didn't have the same products that she used, nor did I used all Prima products. I just made do with whatever I have.

Here's my take..... drum roll......

I think I'm getting the how, although mine isn't too grungy except for the embellishment part. But the colours look a little too bright for a grungy look. Some close ups

28 - because he was born on the 28th. 

If you look closely, I masked with Tim Holtz gear mask, stamped the filigree-liked image
from Prima, script  from Fancy Pants Designs and messy spots from
 Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous.

The clock dials and the gears I got from an old Swirlydoos kit, which I have
 been hoarding a ages. The street light is from Kaiser.

I am happy with the job I did. But next time I would use darker shades of the Glimnmer Mist colours.

Thanks for dropping by everyone. Have a nice day!!
