Hello friends

Happy Halloween!
I said in my post yesterday that I would share with you a project Ive been working on....
its a really mash up of different products.
(I will list them all at the end of the post)

I wanted to create something a little bit grungy to go with this original vintage photograph
Im still very much experimenting with some of my Tando/Deco-art purchases. 
I used lots of crackle paint for the background on the tag....loving that crackle!

I created lots of layers using modelling paste, gesso and paints,
I used a dylusions stencil to get the background circles.....

The actual base is wood, bought from hobby craft.
I stamped using Amy Tangerine alpha stamps with black archival.
The screws and bolts are from Tando creative and I was inspired by Andy skinners technique, giving them that cool/rusty look.

The stars are small wooden christmas decorations that i stripped the colour off and painted using deco-art media paints.
The word remember is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology range, framed by a book plate from Tando

I really enjoyed creating this, although I realised how impatient I am when it comes to waiting for gesso/paint to dry!

Feel free to leave a comment, I really do appreciate you popping by 

Have a very Spooky Halloween!

Bye for now
