Hello friends, first of all I would like to thank you all for your support and encouragement given to my blog. It has been ONE year since I started this blog and in this journey I have learnt lots of new crafts from my fellow bloggers and artists. Have a look at the new appearance of my blog customized based on the peacock theme. I hope you will continue your support. Your comments/ suggestions/feedback are always welcome. Keep visiting my blog.

Now moving onto today's post....Today am sharing with you all a grungy masculine layout made using pattern papers, distress inks, newspapers and stamps. 

I took a brown pattern paper from "once upon a time" paper stack and pasted it on a cardstock. I stamped the pattern paper using tim holtz visual artistry stamps. I added two layers of vintage newspaper upon this ( Handmade by distressing ordinary newspaper). Then I started adding "masculine elements" for eg camera roll, gear etc. Everything is hand- cut from cardstock. 

Then I cut the cardstock into small tags and stamped each one on them and glued it to my layout.

To give it a grungy look distressed the edges using black ink. 

Hope you all liked my grungy masculine layout.
