123 September Challenge

Back again!!! Oh, I have been busy. It would seem the challenges this month have been super inspiring!
This time I have my take on the 123 challenge: 

use something METAL

 You don't have to talk me into using the colour Grey at all, naturally I could not resist giving this a go!

My 3 boys!!!
I started off with my brand new stencil from Crafters Workshop that I was dying to use. I did a smear of Gesso randomly across the stencil first, then, without lifting the stencil sprayed away with a few colours of Mist from Tattered Angels and Lindy's Stamp Gang.
The page just evolved from there all by itself, I really did not think about this one too much at all, just one of those days where everything I threw at it just worked!

You can see all the chippy goodness here.
All the chippies are Scrap FX of course, the wordlet is a newbie hot off the lazer! The rest are oldies but goodies that I just love! Most are just sprayed with Mist or I used some Mica Paint, one coat and they were done!

Found this quote on Pinterest, a great way to get lost in time!
 The metal bits are Tim Holtz gears and spinners,  I have been bonding with them for ever. Thought it was time to start using them.....I do feel a sense of lost though....(Oh I am loosing it!) The paper clips are also in that same boat and are from 7 Gypsies.

This is the new wordlet, I think it could be used
for so many themes and I love the fonts used!
 I am back to strips! Again?! I know, so shoot me!
 What goes with the strip thing best? Washi Tape that's what! The grey chevron (from Sawyers Place) suited the theme so well.

I guess I have come to the end of this post hope all is well for everyone out there in cyber space, thanks so much for visiting my little corner of it!
