~ Glam Grunge ~

Who says grunge can't be girly? I had this urge to get messy last night, so I pulled out a 12x12 canvas and went to town with molding paste, gesso, inks, paint, lace, jewellery, diecuts, paper clips, and more. I used a couple of Dusty Attic laser cut dies and dressed them up a bit.
I wish I could take credit for the paper clip idea, but I can't and I want to give credit where it is due. Another staff member over at Scrapbook News and Review magazine named Scarlett Salamone created a layout covered in paper clips and I loved it, so I lifted the idea from her.

The two photos below feature close ups of the Dusty Attic dies I used. I covered the lock in gold alcohol ink and got it a little grungy. The gorgeous scroll is partially covered in ink and gesso.

This is just a close up shot of the messiness and the lace. I used a few pieces of old costume jewellery I had on hand including this cross. In this shot you can see that I also applied some mesh for added texture.

Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!
