For this layout, I used Authentique paper from their Rugged collection.
These are the dies I used:
These are the chipboard pieces I used:
I painted the cogs dark brown and applied Antique Bronze Distress Crackle Paint. I then rubbed them with Sandalwood and Rust Gilders Paste Wax and very lightly rubbed some white paint overtop to highlight some of the texture.
I also did the antique bronze crackle finish on Ada's Flourishes but didn't like how the colour blended too much into the background so I wiped blue and white paint overtop with my fingertip.
For the mat under the photo I took a piece of corrugated paper and brushed white paint over the raised ridges and then sprayed it with Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist.
I rubbed Sandalwood Gilders Paste Wax on the metallic border pieces along the top and bottom of the layout.
Here are a couple more close-ups:
Thank you so much for taking a look!
