Product of the Week - Grunge Paper - Part 1

Hi everyone,
it's a new week and a new product!!!

This week we will be featuring Grunge Paper

For those of you who are not familiar with this paper,
it is a flexible but strong material which is designed to be 'grunged'!!
It can be used in punches, diecutting machines, can be inked, painted,
the list is endless.
There is also Grungeboard which is a bit thicker.

We are going to kick off the week with Neil who will
be showing you his project using Grunge Paper.

Neil says......

"I've tried to create an old medieval style book and grunge paper is ideal for this.

Take one sheet of grunge paper, fold as shown.

Punch holes with the Crop-o-dile through all 3 layers.

Overstamp with Katzelkraft Steampunk cogs before colouring with Distress Stains
 in Forest Moss, Vintage photo and Fired Brick.

When dry, cover with a layer of Rock Candy Distress Crackle.

Cut two strips of grunge paper and colour,
 tie a knot in one end and thread through from the bottom.

Attach paper by using black cord (I used elasticated).

To create the cover embellishment cut a piece of grunge to fit,
 emboss with Alterations retro circles folder,
 ink with Forest Moss and Aged Mahogany Distress Ink, cover with clear 3D glaze.

Create a medallion using Cosmic Shimmer Utee and stamp into it with clock face stamp
 and attach to cover .

I kept the pages loose inside the book so that I could remove them to embellish properly.
