Rust Week: Vintage Mini Book

Hi all, Hannah here with a rust inspired project!

The cute mini book has been created as a project for the Tando Creative Retreat in Norwich 24th and 25th February. At which I will be teaching this as an evening class.

The book has been aged using several layer techniques, incorporating DecoArt Chalky Finish Paints and Media Fluid Acrylics for the washes. While many of my projects contain rusted elements such as cogs and book plates, I wanted to create something to show rust stains can be used as an effective background too.

To add to the vintage vibe of this piece, I have included lace and old photographs. These give a more feminine feel to the design.

I am looking forward to sharing this workshop and the rusty background techniques!
