My second 2Crafty Chipboard share for June

My next creation for 2Crafty Chipboard is totally different to my previous one.
I've gone grungy and rustic.
It's titled:
"Adventure awaits"
I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
"Chevron Bits"
"Steampunk Medium Gears"
"Steampunk Small Gears"
"Chain lengths"
"Adventure loopy title"
"Chained Circle Frames"
"Assorted Arrows"
I grunged up the background paper by adding some stamping in black ink, and also some flicks and blobs of spritz.
I also added some random strips of paper, to which I applied gesso.
As I wanted some of the chipboard to look like rusty metal, I applied Finnabair's Rust Effect Paste.
I was thrilled with how it came out.  So simple.
The rust comes in 3 colours - Red Rust, Brown Rust and Gold Rust.
I got these on a recent retail therapy trip to the fabulous shop Scrap Matrix.
I just rubbed it over the chipboard quite randomly.
I did this for the 'Steampunk Small Gears' and 'Steampunk Medium Gears'
and also for the 'Chained Circle Frames' and the 'Chain Lengths'.
I painted a few 'Assorted Arrows' and 'Chevron Bits' in black, and also added black paint to my title 'Adventure loopy font'.
I then added some extra embellishments - quotes, metal bits and flicks of paint.
I really enjoyed doing a grungy layout.
 It's been a long time as I get so distracted by COLOUR!
This layout really reminded me to step out of my comfort zone and try something a little different.
I hope you do too!!
Much love
