How To Make An Industrial Grunge Layout

The Tattered Walls kit from 123 Scrap With Me has an Industrial Grunge edge to it, perfect for Mixed Media layouts. The combination of Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and TCW Stencil: Screen Print are perfect layered over the Blue Fern Studios papers. Stop by 123 Scrap With Me for a look at the kit. It begins shipping May 24th!

The photo featured on this layout is my oldest daughter. She was going through a Jane Austen phase and needed a regency style gown to fulfill all her dreams. I agreed to assist with the sewing project on the condition I was permitted a photo shoot. An agreement was quickly made!
The base design for the layout is vertical strips of Blue Fern Studios papers. I used the Screen Print stencil and Lilac Lavender Nuvo Mousse on either edge of the large central strip. Using a binder punch I created a stencil with a piece of cardstock. I used it to create a line of circles from Coastal Surf Nuvo Mousse on the left side and Toasted Almond on the right.
The Tattered Walls kit includes an Architextures Junque Pack:Library. I cut the “door knob” vertically and used circle and hexagon cutting dies on the “tooled leather” piece. Doodling, a scattering of Ideaology phrases, and a twist of ribbon finish the photo frame.
Layering to the right of the photo includes a piece of Kaisercraft frame and more scattered phrases. I edged a scrap of BFS “The Library” with a postcard cut and inked. I slipped the dragonfly shape on the stencil under the edge of the frame. I used my finger tip to apply a thick layer of Nuvo Mousse in Toasted Almond.
I repeated the dragonfly and mousse process at the photos upper edge. The stencil retained some of the product so I patted it randomly across the layout. I machine stitched a line to the left of the photo, and added the drop light from the Architextures Junque Pack.
These are the items I used that are not found in the kit:thread, gel writer, circle and hexagon die, binder punch, grey cardstock doily.

Here is a look at the kit I received.
