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

|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!!
