GCD Antiquities by Donna Salazar: Gentleman

Love these papers, seriously love them!!

I don't usually use flowers on masculine pages {babies excepted LOL}, but not only was my grandfather an engineer, he had the most gorgeous garden and loved his flowers... so I felt he'd be very happy to have flowers with his cogs!

The cogs had all sorts of treatment thrown at them, I was trying out some rusting powder, we didn't get along very well, until I discovered that rust takes that 'time' factor to happen. It activated beautifully with vinegar and being left overnight, it gave it that earthy rough rusty look, and then I added some more paint colours etc over the top to add some more depth.

Take care of you.
