Artful times DT have set the difficult theme of "Men" well lets face men are always difficult LOL. Now I am meant to be packing for a few days away where I will be soaking in a hot tub all week but I sneaked off to make this for the challenge, the Diamond is watching sport so I guess I am fine for a little while :) hee hee. I love using old packaging particularly corrugated type and I was inspired to re-visit this love after I viewed Craft attack Valerie blog well Worth a visit.
So I tore it up painted it, rubbed it with DI, used gold leafing and alcohol inks to get that distressed look. Layered it up with black sequin waste a tag I made out of black paper also painted and gold leafed. Added old book pages a stamped image of an engine onto handmade paper (it has a brownish fleck running through it looks really old and I think the image would have looked better if I had cut out the circle ho hum) Finished off with brads and old watch bits also some gear things which have all been rusted with alcohol inks. Thanks so much for looking and I really appreciate the kind comments. Hugs All Sandra XXX
