Industrial man

Hello everyone,

and welcome to this post for Country View Challenges. It is still Miriam's challenge and the subject is 'metal'. I made a mini journal :

I started with a piece of watercolour paper and Distress Oxides... 

I smooshed the inks on my craft sheet, spritzed with water and then dragged the paper through it several times, drying it in between.... 

I then added some background stamping..

Next I stamped the buildings at the bottom, then man; I stamped him on book paper also.. and the sentiment which I embossed with cream embossing powder. 

I adhered the man over the one on the paper and added the sentiment which was stamped on the white edge of the book page. 

And here is where the metal comes in... I took some wire and twisted it into a circle. I attached it to my paper with staples. 

Here is a close up of how that looks... I also added some white splatters and mounted the whole thing on a page out of the same book before gluing it into my journal... 

We hope you will play along with us this month; you could win £20 to spend in the shop ! Just make sure to read the rules. You'll find them HERE

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
