A blog about Mixed Media, Paper Crafts, Altered Art and bit of card making thrown in for good measure. You will also find the odd tutorial and giveaway.

Look what I did!!!
See this is what I do to keep myself out of mischief at the weekends! Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend an Andy Skinner workshop with the seriously bonkers Siobhan Brignull (aka Essex Gal) and this is what we made.
I know it's not my usual thing, but I really do like it. The class was technique rich and I'm pleased to say that I'm no longer afraid of doing an image transfer onto wood and can finally create convincing rust!!! The only thing that didn't go to plan on this project was the cracking, which I suspect was more to do with me than the product ;D However, I have to say the lack of cracking has led to a "happy accident" - I added more of the cracking solution and did indeed get more ultra fine cracks, but if you look closely it also created a rather fantastic pitting effect!
Thanks for stopping by.
I'd like to enter this project into the following challenges: Simon Says Stamp & Show - Rustification (sorry guys you must be sick of seeing these by now!)
