Good morning and happy Monday. I've recently subscribed to Mixed Up , and they are currently running a 'texture' challenge. I wanted to play along but I'm a bit short of time so I thought I would recycle an old make. This is what it looks like now
And this is what it looked like before the 'makeover'
I started by adding some Powertex, cheesecloth, artballs, and texture sand to my heart.
Then I gave it all a few coats of gesso.
Time for some paint now - I started with DecoArt fluid acrylics in blues.
And followed with purples.
This is where I threw the kitchen sink at it! We have quin gold, gilding waxes, and embossing powders.
Would it have been quicker to make something from scratch - yeah probably, but not as much fun!
I'm also joining in with the 'Rust' challenge at Mixed Media Monthly.
Have a lovely week, and thanks very much for looking x
