The Amazing Colours Of Rust

Hi every one hope you are all ok and busy crafting away, Today I have 
been trying to recreate rust as I think it is truly beautiful from it's 
aqua's and turquoise through to russet and copper tones.

So here we go lots of photo's

This was created with Deco Art's media range.

I have a collection of photo's of rust on my Pintrest page under inspiration.

from these photo's I have tried to recreate the natural effects of rust

I am very pleased with them.

more photo's just in case you missed any crackle!!!!!


On the second panel i introduced crackle gaze in places

With alcohol inks

more photo's

I would love to know what you all think!

Shiny Stuff Paper Artsy Challenge

Hi everyone hope you are all well! Thank you for popping over to see my work.
 Last week I made some home made tissue paper with grease proof
 paper after watching the Paper Artsy tutorial brayered backgrounds.

Please see previous blogs well I thought that for this challenge I would use them. 

So here is the paper in its original state prior to me stamping the 
script stamp on it.

Covered a beer matt with the home made paper and stamped the (barometer
I think!) from one of the Paper Artsy plates.   

Various texture pastes and stencils.

more embossing

Two clocks one a Paper Artsy stamp and one from my stash.

A bit of black antiquing cream and more treasure gold.

Lots more! 
Please let me know what you think?

Fragile Paper Challenge

Hi everyone I have been off for a couple of days as I mentioned on my last
post yesterday I think wow you can tell by the number of posts that
 I am publishing.

I did this one for the PaperArtsy Challenge it was to be 
very simple but just didn't get there.

I used torn paper from a second hand book onto a distress
stain sprayed tag.

I used Deco Art Media line white crackle paint over a random 
streaks of fresco finish stone. 

I used Tim Holtz Visual artistry stamps with black archival ink. Once the 
Media crackle paint had dried I used a tiny bit of watered 
down Phihalo turquoise over the top.

I filled in the clock face with Media liquid glass. Highlighted area's 
with oil pastiles.

Ok thats it I am going to enter it now I have enjoyed this project.
don't forget to leave a comment or two.
