I'm thrilled to be over on the Paperartsy Blog to share with you what I created for this months Topic#15...Rust!
For this Project I used Paperartsy/Tracy Scott Set #11 along with; Paperartsy Fresco acrylics, Rusting powder, Distress Inks & oxide inks and rusting paste from Prima, Finnabair Art Extravagence range.
My other little tool was a piece of textured wallpaper to help me build up my layers. I discovered this from one of Seth Apters You Tube videos where he used wall paper to print.
I started off by painting a block of MDF (rescued from hubsters garage) with slate grey Fresco acrylic paint. I added layers by painting onto the textured wall paper and pressing it onto the block. If I wanted to add a bigger area, like the large turquoise part in the middle, I painted onto a piece of plain card and pressed it on to break the pattern.
I got to this point and decided to stamp on some of the smaller stamps into the background but then I thought that the pink was too bright for this project so I repeated with the wallpaper printing using Blood Orange to warm it up and give it a more autumnal feel. I then repeated background stamping as most of the previous had been covered up. I also stamped in various places with the wallpaper using versamark, sprinkled with rust powder and sprayed with white vinegar to activate the powder.
I stamped the butterfly & flowers onto a sheet of card that had been prepared with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxides. I used a sepia ink pad and embossed with clear EP, I repeated with EP so that the butterfly had a little more texture.
I cut a fine metal bracket from my stash in half and fixed both of them to the block along with the butterfly, flowers and circles.
I used the rust pastes around the outside of my project, on the brackets and on selected areas of the flowers and butterfly.
