Mixed Media/ Grunge/ Distressed Themed Projects
by Heather

Hello and welcome scrappy friends, 
2Crafty and CSI have joined forces to solve some case files .

My first layout is for case file #83 
and because I am on both teams I am a double agent 

I loved these colors and wanted to showcase the chippies
 with a masculine /mixed media themed feel and look. 

These colors have such a nautical energy to them and reminded
 me of our many sailing adventures.

Another layout combining 2Crafty and CSI as a double agent .
I followed Em's sketch and added a thin strip of rich
 rust fabric to the color theme . 

Closie of the cluster
inked in paprika and sage. 
the watch face is also inked with paprika and sage.
 I added some metal time pieces and painted crackle paint in order to secure these tiny pieces 

Altered with gesso, ink and crackle paint .
I twisted the frayed fabric and machine stitched to the page.

My final layout for this month is also grunge, showcasing a pic I adore .
My Grandie Ella Jai with her Dad , on the mighty motorbike .

 I just adore this pic of Ella Jai and her Dad, Jair

The chippies are inked with Tim Holtz distress ink /rusty hinge ,
and dabbed with turquoise Versa color ink when dry .
Finally I coated all chipboard with Tim Holtz crackle paint 
to create an old rusty look and feel to the items.
Thanks to each of you for looking
at my work and hope you are inspired 
by the fabulous artwork here on 2Crafty blog.
