I recently posted a faux metal layout using foil....I was inspired by a wonderful crafter named Connie...she is one of the many talented teachers at Treasured Memories....my sweet bloggy friend Bea also teaches there....please follow the links to see some of the awesome creations these crafty wizards have come up with.
This layout was created with metal tape...suggested by my dear friend Sandi....and I think closer to what Connie does with her technique. I have simply layered grungeboard and chipboard onto a piece of cardstack...covered with tape....distressed with alcohol inks and craft paint...embellished with cricut cuts, adhesive pearls, hand made dragon flies, a clock face, buttons, bottle cap and lace......lots of embossing and texturing....SO much fun!!!
I will be teaching my version of this technique at my LSS...wish I were close enough to take the class from Connie.....and a class or two from sweet Bea....I will be working part time at the LSS this summer and look forward to lots of scrappy fun!!!! Thanx for stopping by....have a fab day!

embellies are a combo of cricut cuts/alterations grungeboard/chipboard--glue to layout, cover with tape, distress away, add additonal embellies on top and viola....a great way to impress any man with DADitude!
