New Challenge at Creative Embellishments

Mood Board

Here it is September, already!  That means it's time for a new challenge at Creative Embellishment.  Here's the mood board,  I am drawn to that rusty truck!  The twist this month is to use rust on your project somewhere.  See the challenge entry requirements at the end of this post.

My Take on the Challenge

The old truck in the photo reminded me of this photo of my Dad taken after he wrecked his father's car, I think he rolled it in a ditch.

I used the Steampunk Gear Panel behind the photo to give it emphasis.  The gear panel is heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Copper.  The panel is 6 x 6, so it works well on layouts and cards.

On the left I used the Clock Corner.  This is a really cool Steampunk piece.  Gears and such always work well with masculine layouts, it doesn't have to be Steampunk.

The twist this month is to use rust so I used Prima rusting paste on some loose gears.  Don't you just love this effect, it looks so real!

  1. Love this layout Maggi! That teacher must have been a looker, LOL.

  2. Thanks so much Deb! Yeah, wish I could remember why the teacher distracted him. She may have been on his side of the road and he went in the ditch rather than hit her.
