Scruffy Grunge Book.



I am very happy to present my Scruffy book, which I produced for the PaperArtsy Challenge entitled "Paints With Infusions".

I began by selecting some Cardboard packaging. Tearing and cutting them into pages and then die cutting holes through them so that you can see through to the other pages. I used Seths' Spellbinder Word Circles 1 which comes with 3 stamps. 


Next, I transformed some plastic buttons into rusty ones.


Page 1 is painted with Patina and then using a credit card, I printed lines using various paint colours. Added to this are Crackle Paste stars, sprinkled with Infusions and lightly sprayed with water. Rusty wire, rusty buttons and a Seth Woodchip shape complete it. 


Page 2 is painted with a mixture of Infusions and Metallic Glaze. Onto this, I have stamped words with paint , more rusty buttons and a Seth Woodchip shape stamped and Glazed.


Page 3 is acetate. I have stamped on the back with Black Stazon and painted the shapes. I also managed to punch holes at the bottom and thread my shrink plastic stars.


Page 4 has a combination of Metallic Glaze and Infusions randomly spread across the page with a credit card. Onto this I stamped words, stencilled words added Crackle Paste and sprayed with water and sprinkled extra infusions. This time I stitched on the rusty buttons.


For my front cover, I stitched around the edges, added some stamped stars and a Woodchip shape and finished off with rusty elements and some fluffy threads and Sari Silk.



The backs of the pages are left plain for me to journal on. 

I hope that this has inspired you to pop over to the PaperArtsy blog and join in with the challenge.
Thanks for looking.

Products Used:- Stamps ESA03, ESA04, Paperartsy Infusions; SpellBinders Word Circles1; Art Bits by Seth Apter; Fresco Paints.

I would like to enter this into the challenge over at MixedMediaMonthly where the theme is currently Buttons. My rusty buttons are prevalent in my little book!
