We have a new challenge at the Artist Trading Post Exchange which starts today and lasts for the next fortnight.
Our host this time is the very talented Ruth and she would like to see your rusty creations. Here's some picture inspiration for you followed by what Ruth has to say about her challenge:
'When I was on holiday I just had to take a picture of the texture on this rusty door on the harbour. So, the theme for this fortnight is based on rust. Use the lovely rusty colours of orange, brown and red. Or, maybe use rusting techniques, rusting powder, embossing powders or anything else you can achieve a rusty finish with. Perhaps you find the wonderfully knobbley texture an inspiration? Whatever you decide to use, we would like you to make a mixed media project which should feature some stamping - no digi images though please.'
Here's what I've made for Ruth's challenge:
|I decided to use rusty elements to highlight a tag which I have given a textured patina finish.
A piece of scrap mount board is also rusted for the bottom of the tag. The stamped image is applied to the tag to appear as if she is stepping out from the die cut.
I do hope you enjoyed reading how I made this tag. It's often difficult to gauge how many photos to add and I always leave out loads but I do want you to stay awake!
You must pop over to Artist Trading Post Exchange and see the work by the rest of the hugely talented team. It would be lovely if you found time to join in with us and post a piece of art. We are a very new challenge blog but if you love mixed media style work then ATP Exchange is the place for you. You never know, you may even end up winning the £10 voucher kindly donated by our hosts at Artist Trading Post (full of sooo many goodies!).
Thanks for visiting. I'm back from holiday and hoping to join in much more now.
