Punchinella Gets Down With “The Girls”

Hi there! Scraps, here, with a layout from Alchemist Misty that features loads of texture and plenty of personality.

Grunge_layout

Gritty and gorgeous, right? Let’s see how she put this layout together.

—————————–

Misty: Here is a layout I made using lots of different styles of Gauche punchinella to make the background.  I painted my cardstock and then pressed the different punchinella’s in the gesso to give texture.  Then misted away.

From there I used the chevron template from The Crafter’s Workshop and and added modeling paste over it and misted it as well.

To embellish the page,  I added strips of the rectangle punchinella to the right bottom corner, and some 6 petaled flower punchinella to the top left corner.

I matted the picture to a piece of cardboard that I covered with aluminum tape and then embossed.

Below the pic, I added a strip of ouchless cardboard backed with some lace, and added large silver eyelets.

To the top right corner I clipped on a barrett from the blue color kit to a piece of scrap (ouchless) cardboard.  Because the color didn’t quite match my layout, I decided to heat emboss the barret and then add some purple ink over the embossed areas.

I had tons of fun creating this layout, and I’m obsessed with all of the different punchinellas that are available, to create textured backgrounds and to satisfy my need for metal on a page!

——————————-

I am just loving the monochromatic, industrial vibe to this layout. That turquoise pop from the bit of lace does a fabulous job of pulling the eye in towards the picture and highlighting the subtle and not-so-subtle textures.

Of course, I’d be totally remiss if I didn’t point you towards the Gauche Alchemy punchinella variety pack so you could try out your own take on this layout.

Until next time!
