So many things i am loving, tissue paper, chipboard, rust paste, copper micro beads, distress embossing
powder, alchemy paints, industrial stencil, and harlequin texture.
I started by covering mixed media paper with pattern paper, ripped up some tissue paper, ephemera card and adhered with gel medium. Next i swiped on some gesso with a palette knife. I allowed it to dry a little then wiped off some. I sewed around the outside.
Roughed up the edges with a distressing tool and distress ink. Added some washi tape in the top right and bottom left corners. Added color and shimmer with Prima Blooms, turquoise and blue. Dry
I took some Lindy's gold spray and flicked it on top of the blue shimmer spray. Dry.
Added some great industrial numbers and arrows with a stencil, applied the black paint with a sponge. I used the paint like a versa mark and sprinkled on distress embossing powder- black.
Added some texture with a harlequin stencil, I mixed alchemy blue/gold opal paint with modeling paste. The paint lost some of shimmer when i mixed with modeling paste so I painted over the harlequin with the alchemy paint. Added some copper micro beads mixed with gel medium and randomly applied around harlequin texture.
Next i added a bunch of chipboard gears then painted them walnut distress paint. Next rust up those gears with rust paste by Prima LOVE this stuff, dries matt and is super gritty.
