Today is the start of a new challenge over at A Vintage Journey. Lovely Astrid is hosting this month's challenge and her chosen theme is 'Rustic Charm' and Astrid says 'Rustic describes a design that is natural, rough, aged and casual. We would love to see you create a project using these elements: think nature inspired textures and simple and earthy colours. Just remember to create your project in one of our preferred styles: vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling, industrial, timeworn or steampunk.' I'd created a decoration for Astrid's fabulous theme. I hope you like it.
I have added gesso to a piece of chipboard. Let it dry. I sprayed the chipboard with Walnut Stain, ground espresso Distress Spray Stain, and some water. Dried with a heat tool and picked up extra ink from the surface.
I added the Distress Spray Stains and water to a Glass Media Mat, then swiped an old book paper through the inks, picking up a little of color. Let it dry. I tore a piece of corrugated cardboard and applied white gesso in select areas with my finger. I've used a Tim Holts Idea-ology Lace Baseboard Frame to frame my Found Relative as the focal point.
Thanks so much for stopping by & have a nice day!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
