A little grungy ....

Today I have 2 pages to show.

Louise recently attended a class in Darwin with the incredibly talented Finnabair.

"This canvas was created when I attended a class by the amazing Finnabair from Poland. Along with several items of junk and ephemera, I used the wheels from both the pushbike and penny farthing bike chipboards.

Other materials used include canvas board, lace, bubble wrap, netting, string, buttons, pot scourer, mists and sprays, black paint, gesso, gel medium.

This piece of genius is inspired by her.

Thanks for sharing Lou - you can see more of Lou's work on her blog - LOUISE

I have also created a grungy page using papers that Finnabair has designed from 7Dots Studio.

This page is about me being 37! :)

I used quite a few techniques on this page - lots of gesso and texture paste, stamping, misting and inking!
The chipboard has quite a few processes added to it but mostly texture paste over a mask and then inked! I love how it turned out!
I designed this page especially for Once Upon A Sketch who we proudly sponsor!

I've used the following supplies for this page ... 7Dots Studio paper, Prima flowers, Green Tara flowers, various spray mists, gesso, texture paste.
