Industrial Grunge how to.. Guest Designer for Our Creative Corner

Morning all, Sorry things have been so sporadic but I am pleased to say progress is being made on the house front, we are signing papers on Monday and hope to have our place by the end of the month so please stick with me, Ill be a little quiet but things will get back to normal.
A little while back Laura from Our Creative Corner very kindly asked me to be their guest designer for October, Now I am a fan of all the ladies over at OCC so it was a very simple yes, and when I found out the theme was Rust-ic I was even happier.
If you are new to OCC you are missing out, it is a fantastic blog with awesome artists, their projects always inspire and you will find lots of ideas with their technique tutorials.
This is my finished piece and if you follow the link you will find a little step by step for what I have done,I think I used pretty much everything in the new Decoart Media Line.
Thanks for sticking with me. xx Hopefully i'll see you over at OCC

I would like to enter this into the following challenge.
