This album was started with a Grungeboard Album. If you have any questions about products used or techniques, please leave a comment.  Thanks for visiting!
Metal embellishment is Tim Holtz.  Bottle stickers are Martha Stewart.  Background stamp is also Tim Holtz.  

Started orange cardstock and glued chipboard letter to it.  Adhered stamped tissue paper (from old Simplicity Patterns) on top with matt medium.  Highlighted letters with silver Rub’n Buff.  Black drips are just paint.  The barbed wire is hand wrapped and fixed with some brads from my stash.  All topped with some fine cotton fibers from some gauze I tore up.

These are my favorite pages, since I’m on a steampunk kick lately.   Paper background is Chillingsworth Manor.  The metal  is a aluminum foil through a Cuttlebug embossing folder and painted black for patina.  I filled in the back with modeling paste and then tore it into strips and glued it to the paper.  Crumpled glassine is also used here to make the pocket.

Chillingsworth Manor paper.  Tim Holtz crow.   Tree branches are The Crafters Workshop – mixture of modeling paste and cheap black gesso.  It turned out to not be the consistency I wanted, but went with it anyway.  Don’t buy cheap gesso.

Background paper is Carta Bella, All Hallow’s Eve., with some Chillingsworth on top along with some stickers.
