DT Throwdown Round 2

Here we are again with our Design Team Throwdown entry.
The voting has changed a bit, giving the teams more time to create, 
with the voting being open Thursday and Friday ONLY.
Now we are being judged together as a team, as opposed to
receiving individual votes.

For more info you can go here.


The theme is FAUX FINISHES.

Here are our entries:



Gorgeous faux metal and rust technique on a chipboard box.
For more info, please drop by Andrea's personal blog.


Very masculine and gritty faux rust and patina techniques 
on a journal cover. 

Faux cracked glass technique.

Embossed diamond plate and riveted metal chipboard pieces.
For more info, please drop by Mark's personal blog.


Paper Mache skull with bronze metallic paint and patina treatment. 

All paper and card stock gears and cogs and such, 
given a faux rust technique.

Stamped stylized steampunk gears onto tissue paper and adhered it 
over the bronze and patina. Next time, I think I'll apply it before 
the patina step.


Good shot of the bronze and patina, and a close up of the gears and 
stuff. For more info drop by my personal blog.

The Haunted Design House team won the first DT throw down, 
and we'd love to go two for two on this round as well.
We all worked really hard on our projects and we think it shows.
If you would like to see the entries from all of the teams
and cast your vote on Thursday or Friday, here is the link
to participate and vote, but it's free and very worth signing up.
