February challenge over at anything but cute is grungy love. So i was at the dollar store (nothing is a dollar at the dollar store FYI) and they had foam heart for Valentine's day and an idea took route.
chipboard, deco art antiquing creams, foam heart, twine, gesso, lindy's color spray, stampendous embossing enamel, Dina Wakley heavy body acrylic paint, Tim holtz rub ons and brads, earth elements, ranger perfect pearls and Colour Arte primary elements.
SO many layers to get it where i liked it.
gears along cut out portion, wings on the back and a winders along the bottom. Use good glue all the paint layers put it through hell.
Deco Art. Next layer antiquing cream English red oxide, then titanium white, then i dusted with perfect pearls biscotti. At this point i set aside for a bit.
flourish 3- large added some twine and texture with modelling paste and stencil. On top of the flourish i added earth elements in center. Once everything had dried painted with gesso. Originally i was going to have print visible but nope that plan didn't pan out.
The flourish was colored with antiquing cream, carbon black, english red oxide and white. (just in the center on top of all that lovely texture) Layer and wipe layer and wipe until i had the coloring i wanted.
At this point i decided everything was too much the same and nothing stood out. but what to do. This is why this tag took me like 6 hours isn't that riduclous.
So moral of the story- sometimes adding more and more layers works, but remember sometimes it doesn't you don't really know whats going to happen til the end.
Happy Sunday, enjoy it, got to go to work tomorrow. My job keeps intervening with my crafting time.
