I got grungy!!! *Scrap for Help*

Hello friends and followers!

Today I will share with you a special project!
 This is the first time I tried the style called "Grungy"...I got my hands dirty!!!
 As you might know, I usually make romantic, girly layouts filled with flowers and dreamy mood...
Well, with my mood hitting red during last month and growing stronger inside, through various, complicated situations, I got inspired and made this grungy composition. I just let my emotions go free all over the page..anger, passion,
I really enjoyed it, I love the result...I hope you like it is made by my heart and soul and that's what matters the most...

p.s the quality of the dog's photo is not so good but I will replace it as soon as I buy better photo paper (Cannon-I was out and had to use HP) And of course I should mention that I was also inspired by the very talented Finnabair!

This layout is my example as a design team member for the challenge blog "Scrap For Help"!
This time, as a recycle item, I used surgery bandage (it's placed behind the photo), a bottle cap and a beer tin cap!

Don't you just love that cute little puppy????

Some close up photos...

To accomplish this look, you paint your chip. letters with black acrylic paint, you apply a thick portion of crackle accents. When it is dry and you can see the crackles, you paint it all red and wipe off right away with a baby wipe! The red color goes inside the crackles and...voila...magic happens!
 After that, you cover with glossy accents.

The vinyl cog  and heart are "Purple Pumpkin" 

The button with the mushroom is by "Eye candy magic"

The chip cog is Imaginarium designs and the red button is Purple pumpkin

This piece of paper comes from Cherry Nest and it gives the definition of a dog (like in a vocabulary).
Now...the initials "GLAC" is something I could never translate..I'm

Another ID cog!
