March "Industrial" ATC (Dusty Attic, Swirlydoos, Helmar)

This month was a fun challenge for me to step out of my girly comfort zone and create an industrial themed Dusty Attic ATC - which I then turned into a card using my March Swirlydoos "Vintage Chic" kit.

Metal and glass came to mind for this ATC inspired project so I decided to create that look on some leftover chipboard parts (the casings) of the French Garden Border (DA0845) and the Corner Flourish #2 (DA0629), as well as a set of Mini Wings (DA0783). I started by texturizing the flourish piece with texture effects paste, then added several metallic distress stains. I layered 3 little scraps of Prima's Engraver papers from my March Swirlydoos kit and then added the other 2 chipboard pieces and the metal junkyard findings bits.

On the wings, I used gesso, ink and glass bead gel. For the portion of the French Border casing, I painted it with Soot paint (DA0925) and topped it with Clear Crackle Varnish (DA0900).

PLEASE NOTE: Helmar adhesives were used for this project: Helmar Premium Craft glue for the papers layers, Acid-free glue for the chipboard and 450 quick dry glue for the metal.
