Here is the gorgeous sketch by Leah. I flipped it to work with my photo better.
I hand made all the flowers, starting off white and using watered down distress ink to build layers of color.
Here you can see the Dusty Attic butterfly that I used Distress Crackle paint and the metal clock by Tim Holtz.
I love the Melissa Frances key and lock, and thought it really brought out the feel I was trying to create! It's hard to see in this photo, but the bottom corner of the corrugated cardboard, has glitter on it. I sprinkled it on while the Gesso was still wet.
Some more Dusty Attic goodness! I just got the chicken wire from them and couldn't wait to use some! I used Distress Stain and Puffy paint. I fussy cut the big butterfly out of the paper and used
Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint, and then some Patina Stickles. The lovely white flourish is from NiklinDesigns1225 on her Etsy store.
Here is a close up of the masking I did with a Prima mask, the DA chicken wire, and the script stamp in the top right hand corner that I stamped and embossed with distress embossing powder!
And there you have it! My take on Girlie Grunge! It was fun getting my hands dirty! I will definitively will be doing this again! I am thinking of mounting this layout onto a canvas and giving it to my daughter to hang in their house once they are married! I can hardly believe TOMORROW is the big day!!!
