Dusty Attic DT Inspired Challenge

So I finally made a layout, it's been weeks! WEEKS! Far too long since I've touched anything scrappy. As soon as I saw the challenge over in the Dusty Attic forum, I knew I had to give it a go! It was the Dusty Attic DT Inspired Challenge, inspired by Finnabair's style! Love her style, I have always admired it from afar, thinking jeez I could never do something like that but it looks amazing when she does it. Well this challenge made me go out of my element, WAAAAY out of my element into Finn's. =)

Here is what I came up with.

Obviously you have to prime your pieces before going to town with your mists, well my little dilemma was that I didn't have Gesso and REALLY didn't feel like running to Michaels to buy some. So I in place of that, I used white crackle paint, then I removed my picture and totally went all out with my Tattered Angels Glimmer mists, Tattered Leather and touches of Candy Apple Red.

This layout in real life..oh my the glimmer effect is unreal! It's divine

I had an awesome time giving this challenge a go. It was amazing to dabble in Finn's world for a while. I am sure I will be giving this style another whirl soon. Could you imagine, a rugged boy layout or a pretty pink/purple girly layout..hmm...wheels are spinning. Oh buddy!

Alright, I'll leave ya guys now.
Time for a snack and vegging!
