Great friends....

Hello friends

Hope you are all good!
A quickie post from me today, to share my latest make
Not one to embrace colour,
surprise surprise....Ive gone for a very grungy look
(I just couldn't help myself!)

The base is made from wood (from hobbycraft)
which was painted with gesso,
I then I added lots of layers of distress paints to it
(walnut stain, black soot)
I used an then used a Tim Holtz Idea-ology cabinet card,
applied a layer of gesso, texture paste and grit paste
through Tim Holtz Stencils 
(THS070, THS006 and THS005)

When it had dried I used distress crayons and more paints to enhance the stencil marks
The Baroque frame (Idea-ology) was painted with grit paste, when dry,
 I painted it in black soot distress paint.  To highlight areas I used a gold sharpie pen.
I then added the photograph ( from found relatives-occasions set)and stitched the outside of the
cabinet card.
To add some finishing touches I added some lace and stars (stars are from finnabair) I added some arrows and bolts from Idea-ology and mounted it all onto the wooden base
All products are available from Art from the Heart (link in side bar)
