My team mates are also showing you some inspiration today so please go and leave them a little comment or two. The second team will be up a week from now so it would be great if you could show them some support too.
As long as you stick to the theme of getting messy, you can make anything you like except a card. So, come on, you know you want to get even messier than usual! Let's see paints, modelling paste, crackle medium/paste, inks, pastels, crayons, gelli plates, stencils, masks, mica sprays and powders and all the other things I haven't mentioned!
I used lots of DecoArt Traditions paints and one of their crackle mediums to make my wall plaque for this challenge, along with a few Andy Skinner Timeworn Techniques of course!
|The wings were die cut then embossed before being 'rusted' with a Timeworn technique and DecoArt Traditions paints.|
Coiled rusty wire was placed either side of the heart too.
|I think these punched flowers look like cracked china when viewed in close up. Problem is, I want to make them all the time . . . . . . . .|
|For the base of the plaque, a piece of thick card was given a Timeworn treatment and made to look like aged ivory (I hope!!) followed by yet more crackle. Both were achieved using DecoArt Traditions paints and crackle medium as before.|
Once dry, an oval was cut from the centre, a stamped and inked layer was placed under the aperture and the oval shape was raised from the background using foam pads.
|I would like to investigate the possibilities of using other colours for the peeled paint effect but these blue shades go so well with the colours used in the piece - it's hard to break the habit!|
Thank you for visiting me - it really makes a difference that you do. Off you go now and get messy - it would be lovely to see lots of you enter a piece for this challenge at Anything But A Card!!
