Sorry for the delay in posting but my computer has been nothing but a little swine! Its been playing up something shocking - ever since I downloaded Windows 10, in fact I am going to write and complain to Microsoft! I am fuming!!!!
Anyway I wanted to enter Mixed Media Worlds Challenge which is "Inspirational Image" - you have to follow the colour palette of this picture
I did a tag - first of all I painted it a neutral grey. Then added some White texture paste through a script stencil. Then I went back onto the tag with a combination of the base grey, black and white and using water and a softening brush created the background.
Then I sprayed it with inks and dropped water droplets onto it ......some people would call it putting outside in the rain!! (Try it for a few moments it gives a wonderful effect and so natural!!!)
The top picture shows a small canvas which I did in the same way as I wanted to stick it onto the tag.
Then I began with my bits and bobs.........I decided on my images and then added layers of embossing powders in both Black and a Tim Holtz colour (distressed pages or something). It needed that pop to lift it up...... I also used a stamp again with embossing powders.
The metal ephemera are from Artist Trading Post - they are great! You can also see some industrial feel washi tape, and a little bit from an old clock.
I love the colours and the way its turned out - and so enjoyed creating this and please nip over to Mixed Media World and take a look at Sara Emilys project as guest designer its lovely! Indeed ALL the inspirational items are fabulous!
Am off now to write my complaint to Microsoft - snail mail no less!! So I mean business!!!!
