Messy Metal - XOXO Scrapbooking

8:00 PM

XOXO Scrapbooking is finding its legs again after a brief hiatus and we are back in force. We have moved to a new blog address and currently have a design team call going. I love these girls and these challenges that are thrown at us twice a month!

The challenge for the second half of August is all about Metal. I was a little stumped on this one to start with, but soon fell into a groove and came up with this baby.

On the Other Side
Using Tim Holtz Metal Cogs and {A Flair for Buttons} Flair

I really wanted to keep the grunge graffiti feel of the old factory on my page, so have used a combination of mists, distress inks, H2Os and stamping.
It was an interesting page for me as I don't normally just chuck stuff on a page, and say that will do. I loved playing with all of the different mediums to make the background and this is the first time I have had the patients to do so. I will admit that I am not entirely sold on how this page turned out, but loved that I took a leap outside my comfort zone and pieces this together.
Head over to the XOXO Scrapbooking blog to check out the other works on display, and apply for the DT while you are there!
