Live your dream...

Hello friends

Hope you are good and that you've had a great week!
Easters hols are nearly over...
Its back to pay the bills job next week for me so this weekend I crammed in some precious
 inky time....

Here's what I did......

I used distress paints with a brayer to create the background, lots of layers!
I then used my splatter brush  to add random splats all over. 
I then stamped the image using Rangers Archival ink and the Tim Holtz/ Stampers anonymous Evolution stamp set ( I just LOVE this set!)
The layers of paint from the brayer gives the image a really cool slightly textured look
I also stamped in red archival ink, using the Mixed media #2 set
Next I added Rangers texture paste through Tim's Herringbone stencil and left it to dry
While it was drying I stamped the quote using stamp set "Perspective"
Once the texture paste was dry I used distress crayons over the top, I really like the look they give on top of the texture paste.
I then painted up the Idea-ology cogs with distress paints and glued them in place using distress matte medium.
This was one of those makes that I could of kept adding to..... but in the end I had to tell myself to stop and walk away!

As always feel free to leave a comment, really appreciate each and every one!
have yourselves a great week

bye for now
