Hi everyone - it is time for a new challenge at That's Crafty and it was certainly a challenge for me! The theme is to use Gold and Silver in a project. Using one I can do - using both was interesting.
Once I finished putting this together I decided it was time for a craft room overhaul - when there is so much clutter on the worktop and floor (eeek) that is cluttering your mind too - it is time to sort! So I am currently mid sort - it looks worse than when I started - but will be fab when complete. Frankie the cat wasn't too helpful and found empty boxes great for sitting in and happily emptied some on her own...
Anyway back to the project! I used an MDF base (That's Crafty! Surfaces) and added various Deco Art Media Fluid Acrylic paints - Cobalt teal hue, phthalo blue, cadmium red and green gold) building up my background. Some stencilling with That's Crafty Dinky stencils and some random stamping added to this.
I used my finger to rub some metallic silver (Deco Art again) in patches over the background - not really visible on the photos and added gold for the bottle top circles.
I took three of the smallest That's Crafty MDF hearts and sponged with either cadmium red or phthalo blue. I then sponged a little white before sponging metallic silver over the blue hearts and metallic gold over the red one.
Back to the tidying for me!
Lots happening at Addicted to Art next week with the new release for PaperArtsy.... just saying - do pop back on the 19th and 20th! Here is a sneaky peak...
