Kraft + Plus May Challenge

Hi there paper friends, thanks for calling by.
Today I have a rare layout that was,  "just for fun". Had some free time & I saw the
current challenge over at Kraft Plus + . It has been soooo long since I entered a challenge
& I have to say, I really enjoyed it. So much so, I made & VIDEO too.


Kraft Plus May Moodboard

Love these colours combined with the kraft background.
I took my inspiration from the colours, flowers & the string.

I don't often do boy layouts but a few weeks back I had to do three for some DT work
& it has got me inspired to re visit boys pages again.

I was really happy with the "Faux" rust look I achieved on these chippie cogs.
All the details are in the video.

Naturally all the chipboard I have used is from  
Cheeky - title
Large Cogs & Gears
Chain Lengths
6" Skeleton Clock Frames

Lots of paint splatters & stamping.

Lots of metal.

Cogs, buttons & Flairs.

  This is actually a good photo showing the faux rusty metal finish I did on the cogs.
Well thats all for today.
 I do hope you take the time to watch my VIDEO
& while there I would love you to subscribe to my You Tube channel.
Until next time.
