Mechanical Love

Happy Saturday everyone, today I'm up on the blog with some mechanical love my next design team project for Art Anthology. Inspired by the wonderful mood board this month.
My 12 x 12 layout features my father back in the early 60's on his job as a metal pourer. 

This layout has layers of different textured papers as well as rusty elements with the cogs and light fixtures. 

Chipboard pieces were altered with Art Anthology paints mixed with craft sand, heated with heat gun to a bubbly goodness. 

Addition of washi tape as well as muslin for the matting under the photo creates a more masculine look. 
Grab yourself some of your old photos and create beautiful layouts adding layers and textures. For your pleasure please enjoy my Snapguide tutorial below and also drop by Art Anthology blog for some unbelievable inspiration and techniques for using our products. 
Entering in the following inspirational challenges: 
Sandee & Amelie's Steampunk-Anything Goes, Steampunk / Industrial
Eclectic Ellapu- Vintage or Shabby Chic
