Hello all and welcome to my crafty blog.

My Mojo came back for a visit this week and the paper and paints came out ot play .

My post today is an A4 sized  distressed, rusted effect creation. I had tried to make the rust effect some time ago, but I had lost  the 'touch' and I needed to get practising!

This piece started out with a rough cover of structure paste on a 220gsm piece of paper to create a tectured surface, which when completely dry, I washed over with an orange coloured paint.  I followed that with stencil from Plaid 'Folkart'' to buld up a nice design and more texture. This was then treated with a wash of green paint, wiped over to allow the orange to show through. I then build up the layers with blue, brown and orange paint mixing in some medium grain gel to create the crumbly rusting.

I do like the finisned result!
Now on to the next project while my Mojo is in town.

Thanks for stoping by to visit and don't forget to leave me a comment.  I love to hear from you.

Take care.
