A Grungy Layout for CCG

What a challenge this week's palette was at Color Combos Galore! Very monochromatic and with a designers recipe challenge which included creating a ledge effect on your page!

I had this photo of my son and his friend sitting on a ledge so it was perfect for the designers challenge!
The shot was one of a series taken for promo shots for their band (do you call a Hip Hop act that??) and I was lucky to get a few photos from them.
Played with gesso and mists to make my 'wall' background and I am really happy with the grungy feel it created!

Thanks for looking. Hope you get a chance to play along!


  1. Oh FANTASTIC the grunge look of it! Brilliant texture in the background of the wall, mesh & the transparency circles! Simply fab!!!

  2. Wow! Fantastic layout Karen! So glad I found your blog. I've always admired your work in the SS gallery. You do such stunning boy layouts.
    Have a great week. :)

  3. Such a cool page, Karen! LOVE the bricks in the background and the "grunge" you added. Brilliant solution for the "ledge" part of the challenge! Gorgeous design, as always!

  4. Wow! This is just stunning! I love everything about this! Awesome!
