Industrial Grunge

 Howdy!  Time for some Industrial Grunge!  The new challenge at the Funkie Junkie Boutique hosted by Teri!  She describes the challenge as follows: 

"Get those gears and other metal pieces out to create a project with an industrial feel to it. Great opportunity to create a guy card or project."

I went golden with my metallic inspiration... I tried to put some pages together for a junk journal and started with some pieces of cardboard as my base. 

I made the pages two-sided using the pretty back drop papers to cover my cardboard.  I then pulled out the idea-ology goodies and some other metallic pieces to adorn my pages. 

Each page was an exploration in layering textures, papers, stamping and embellishments.  All covered with golden browns.
I love added hints of texture with embossed stamping, embossing paste, or just sponging on a darker color using a stencil.

I cut my cardboard pieces 5 x 5 and then used the left over bits to have half pages which leads into intrigue as to what is behind the next page. 

All finished the journal will layer the pages over each other alternating half page to full page. 

Are you feeling the industrial grunge? Come join us in the challenge!  The overall winner will be offered the chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the drawing for the chance to win a $25.00 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team. 

Thanks for stopping by! 




  1. Love your feminine/grungy pages, Suzz! Each one is a wonderful golden brown collage filled with texture and inspiration! I especially love the girl with the bee.

  2. Wonderful junk journal pages! I absolutely love the transparent wings and all the gears sprinkled throughout the pages.
