My 2Crafty February DT Reveal
Playing Along at Words & Paintery
"Caught in the Act"

 Hi there peeps, thanks for stopping by. Today I have a rare boy layout to share,
because it has been a while since I have done one I know !!! I have based it on
the current challenge over at "Words & Paintery" 

I was a winner with this layout over at
"Words & Paintery"

I have used the following 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces..
Caught in the Act - title
Chain Lengths
Fencing Wire Panel
Giant Cogs & Gears

I painted the title part red & part black using acrylic paint & when
dry I added some Glossy Accents in a "hit & miss" fashion to the red.
Gee I haven't used this stuff in ages !! It just worked for this.

For all the other chipboard I just colored them black using an ink pad & then
wiped on a little copper "Viva Inka Paste". It gives a real metal finish.

Lots of background mixed media, some stamping & some licorice coloured 
micro beads, all of which adds to the texture. I have also layered some scraps
of denim & hessian in between the papers & chipboard.

Well thats all from me today. Hope you liked it.
See you back here again soon.
Until then


  1. Denim & hessian, eh? Fab idea - which I might have to nick at some stage;).... LOOOVE the red on the title.... You do boy grunge to perfection. Fab LO:):)

Because there is never a misser , it is always top . So much to do with designfeeling , but I think a lot with effort too. Not just throwing something on the paper, but every detail is on its place.
