Hope you are all good!
Ive just returned to work after the summer holidays...
sigh...its taking a while to get back into the swing of things but I think I'm getting there, slowly...
During August I watched my very talented friend Kate Crane do her arty thing with her magic hands on the Hochanda shopping channel....wasn't she good??
(if you ever get a chance to take a workshop with Kate....you must, she rocks!!!)
I told myself that I didn't need anymore mixed media stuff, I didn't need anymore mixed media stuff, I didn't need anymore mixed media stuff....
but by the end of the show I had ordered new mixed media stuff!
How good were they??
So you know where this is going right??
Yes....I'm a salesman dream!
So After running up a nice bill on my credit card I thought I best put to use some of the products I bought and share with you my latest make...
The base is a wooden plaque that I picked up from hobbycraft
I used some of the techniques that were shown on the shows....
The background stencil is a crafters workshop, I used modelling paste through it
The bolts are from Industrial Elements ( Tando creative) and are coloured with the Deco-art media grunge set from the show that Andy Skinner did on Hochanda, I love the transformation the kit goes through....its very clever!
If you are a follower of my blog you will know that I like to add my own embellishments, so I added an old rusty key and some really old telephone cord cable.....
To finish I added some rusty wire and added some stitching to the photograph.
I also added some of my favourite Remnant rub-ons and the word 'memories' from Tim Holtz Big chat words.
I'm still very new to the using the products and still have lots to experiment with (and learn!) but Ive really enjoyed the process!
If you would like to leave a comment then please, feel free....
I really appreciate each and everyone!
I will be back soon
Have a lovely weekend!
Bye for now
