Anything Goes Week - Time Flies

Morning everyone,

Today I've got a tag/hanging for you that I was playing with backgrounds for a while on, and loved this bright but grungy style.  I also like putting colours together that don't initially 'go', but always end up working.

The background was some red, orange and pink paint, just randomly applied to the tag.  To pull it together I used a Media Mister in Violet, and spritzed the tag all over.  I then spattered black, and then white paint on the tag, drying in between stages so they didn't mix.  A honeycomb heart stencil was used with black modelling paste to give texture, and some number's stencilled to one side.  The sentiment is a printable.

The heart in the centre was stencilled with the treadplate stencil, then given the same red and pink paint treatment as the background.  On top of this, white antiquing cream was added and rubbed back when dry.  I also spattered with black and white paint.

Cogs were added, using a very very simple rust technique, it's just two colours, Burnt Umber and Pyrrole Orange, stabbed loosely with a paintbrush and nice and wet, and then heat dried until the paint bubbles slightly.  This gives great texture and is very quick to do.

The clock in the centre was a metal embellishment with separate hands.  I first gave it the rust treatment without heat, and then used Crackle Glaze all over once glued together.  The crackle glaze helps to hold it as well.  I used White Antiquing cream again in the cracks of the glaze, and wiped back when dry.  I wanted a matt effect on this and the cogs, so used Ultra Matte Varnish to seal.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the teams design's this week :)

Thanks for stopping by.
