My August 2Crafty DT Reveal - Part 2

Yesterday i shared with you a 2Crafty layout inspired by the ocean....
Click HERE to see.

Today, my project digs deep into the earth as i played around with different metallic finishes.

I went all gold, silver and COPPER with this altered grunge-style frame using a beautiful quote from the Graphic 45 Kraft Reflections collection.  The frame is a wooden frame i bought at my local dollar store.  I started by painting it black, then i added some clear crackle paint.  I then improvised with different paints and inks until i found the right combination of alcohol ink, Liquid Pearls and distress stains.

The Penny Farthing piece was a favorite of mine the first time i saw it.   I was saving it preciously for the perfect project.

With the grunge look being so popular these days, you have to add these chipboard Gears to your stock.

Now a close look at the blooms that i also distressed with a metallic finish.

This is the gorgeous Swirly Bird Branch - i cut off the bird to save it for later of course!  You can also see that i used up the last of my Chicken Wire Panel.

And a final look at that inspirational quote!

Visit the 2Crafty blog for my full monthly reveal which also features this layout that i created and shared with you a few weeks ago.  You can see more details HERE.

See you tomorrow for the long awaited reveal of the August kits from My Creative Scrapbook.
