Bring on the Rust

It's May how the hell did that happen!!???!  April has been an insane month for, good insane but insane thus the lack of blog posts hopefully in May i will get to create instead of prep and package.  This month at Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog is RUST!

This month's sponsor is emerald creek, they make these amazing embossing powder that are a must have for mixed media and scrapbooking.


As usual I started with my background, creating a background is always my favorite part.  Paint pattern paper with clear gesso, dry. Start adding the alchemy paint - midnight sky first, paint on then spray with water move color around with paint brush and heat gun to get swirlly background.  Repeat with brass and paint.  Dry  Sponge greyish acrylic paint through numbers stencils around layout.


Sponge white acrylic paint through number stencil.  Lay stencil on top, slightly above and to the left of grey numbers. Now the the grey layer looks like a shadow.
Background done, now you can layer embellishments, paper layers and chipboard on top.


Final layout. I used 7 dots Studio Hazy Days pattern paper and paper die cuts.


 I like to draw around paper embellishment with charcoal then smear with fingertips, just another small detail.


For the chipboard filmstrip i embossed with Emerald Creek Baked Texture Chunky Rust- as you can see it actually looks like rust- real rust.


Here is another great shot of that Chunky Rust Baked Texture.  I also used on Chicken Wire chipboard.


I love the paper die cuts included in paper pack from 7 dots studio.  For that blue splatter I sprinkled Emerald Creek Deep Sea baked texture around this little cluster.  If you sprinkle on top of page then heat from the bottom then you don't need embossing ink!!.


Filmstrip Chipboard $7.95




Chicken Wire Chipboard $8.50
