Dusty attic Goes Grungy

Today I would like to show you all how I turned a pretty lace Dusty Attic chipboard piece into a grungy embellishment for a boys layout...

'Carefree'

To create this I took one of the DA Lacey Corners and covered it in black Acrylic Paint.

 
When this is dry, sand the edges of the piece to distress and roughen it up.

 
Adhere metal cogs to the pieces and add dots of liquid pearls. Sprinkle dry embossing powder in silver over the wet dots.

 
When this had all dried, I added it to my page with some monochrome embellishments and hints of blues for a perfectly masculine layout!
