Rusty Relics Layout by Pieta! I just love the photography as well as how this layout pulls together to be just perfect!
paper is Little Yellow Bicycle - Saturdays - Enjoy the Ride – I used
the reverse side which was a nice denim blue colour and texture and
seemed to contrast well with the rust! The photos are not matted
individually but all onto a big piece of LYB - Saturdays - Cottage
Dreams - which was torn at the bottom – once again the reverse side
which had a lovely rustic wood grain effect.
cogs are a combination of Dusty Attic & Kaisercraft so I could get
several different sizes and are coloured with Tim Holtz Mahogany
Distress Stain and makes them a lovely rust colour. The brads in the
middle were just plain silver ones which I painted a rust colour to give
a coating them put a blob of tea dye crackle paint (crackle would not
stick directly on to the brads) to try and give a weathered rusty flaky
look, then once this was dry I darkened it with the mahogany distress
Letters were Jillibean Soup Burlap Chipboard Alphabeans and the burlap suited the rustic colours of the page.
Journaling tag was out of the LYB - Saturdays - Tear-Out Ticket & Journaling Card Booklet.
be honest, if I had looked at these papers myself I don’t think I would
have picked them, and when I first saw them struggled a bit to get
something happening with them but was determined to not to let them beat
me and I am happy with how they have turned out.
