a little bit rusty..
well here is a piece that was inspired by the talented Tracy Evans here, there are so many lovely and inspiring people in blogand that never fail to amaze with their creativity and ideas. My make is not the same but came from seeing the piece here . So here is my make :
having never really tried this technique large scale ... I dabbled here, I am loving it and know there will me more to come... So I started with a script stencil from crafters workshop and some fab studio 490 embossing paste. then when dry ...I got playing with lots of yummy idea-ology and lots of yummy goodies from my Dad...screws, washers and lots more rusty goodies! thanks Dad.x I also added some prima things. I glued them all down...and really liked them like this!
Then covered with gesso and admit it looked cool at that stage too! I then set too work creating my background colour, this was lots of spritzing, lots of water and lots of drying before it got the industrial kind of feel I wanted!I used selection of homemade sprays using re-inkers,( gathered twigs) and Dylusions sprays black marble, white linen and melted chocolate. I edged the whole board with treasure gold in onxyite.
The image is one of my favourites from the new Tim Holtz releases...love it and so many people have done such cool things with him already!I am a little late to the party...and wanted to finally ink him up!
I inked him up in black archival ad then set to work painting him with my waterbrush and distress inks and Dylusions to get a really industrial feel...I hope?!
I added him to my paperboard hanging and there you go...an word band sentiment and my make is finished! ( would have been blogged earlier if Mr Blogger had let me put my photos on!!!!!GRRRR).
