Bliss- Steampunk style

It’s the beginning of fall here in Canada, time to start playing with rusty colors on our pages and I found the perfect challenge to do so. For my page I was inspired by 2 blog challenges. The first from 7 Dots studio and the 2nd from Creative Scrappers.
 
Steampunk... wow, I was amazed with the Design Team creations. I love the mixture of the metal and clock ornaments and I am fascinated on the level of detail that you find on many pages. Now I was faced with an issue.... The picture for my page, I like to harmonize mine with my pages but I had nothing in my stash that would work well with this style. I know an extremely talented photographer in Montreal Maxime Thibodeau, so I went and asked if I could use one of his pictures for my layout.

 
This page was truly fun to do; I had many of these elements in my stash just gathering dust. Too often I purchase embellishments and it takes forever for me to decide to use them. Over the years I have to say I have gathered quite a huge amount. Here is a closer look:
 
 
To color the chipboard I used black paint for my base then added silve crackle Finnabair medium. Once dry I added touches of copper metalic paint I gesso. Love how this turned out.
 
I love adding quotes to my pages and this is one of my favorites:
 
 

The picture... His work is just amazing, his ability to capture de details thru his lens is mind-blowing. His most recent pieces focus on hairstyles and he's been published in a few magazines. He is such a sweet young man and I know we will be seeing more and more of his work. Here is a closer look at his breathtaking picture:

Now, here is the beautiful inspiration board from 7 Dots Studio and link to join in on the fun:

I also was inspired by the sketch of the month from Creative Scrappers. I have to admit that my first starting point to create my page ended up in the trash bin... Then I saw this sketch and I knew I just had the perfect Blue Fern Studio chipboards to make this a perfect layout.

Cuts2luv is sponsoring the challenge this month over at the Creative Scrapper blog. It’s no secret that I am a great fan of their badges. Here is another close look of one that I added on my page:
 
Well I hope you enjoyed my take on the challenges. Thanks for the inspiration to both Creative teams.
 
A special thanks to Maxime Thibodeau for letting me use his work on my page.
