A rusted background layout – Frog Dog Studio

Hello there! Today I´m sharing with you one more project I made for Frog Dog Studio with the March mixed media kit. This will also be the beginning of my monthly series called “simply stencils”. I will make at least one project a month where I will use a stencil in one way or another. As my first project I created a rusted layout background and added some stencilled details here and there.

 Here is how I did it:

I first applied some Glue n´ Seal with a paint brush onto the cardstock and then poured the powder over the “glued” areas. Next I sprayed some white winegar over the powdered areas and let the media react.

And this is the rusted paper result I ended up with! I really, really like this effect alot! I then added some mist splatters here and there as they perfectly matched the rust colour.
Next I added some stamping (used a Frog Dog Studio exclusive stamp).
After that I added some circles onto the background for additional detail. I used a TCW stencil (by Ronda Palazzari) with black Distress Ink. Now the background was all done and I just needed to add some decoration and the title.

I used all the leftover pieces of chipboard, foil tape and corrugated cardboard here. Added some sticker elements, twine, doodling and some white ink (Liquitex Ink! Titanium white) for detail. This is what the finished layout looks like:

It was so much fun creating this page! I really like the effect of rusting powder (by Dusty Attic) on paper!

Happy scrapping,
xoxo, Sanna
