October challenge - Rhedd's Creative Spirit

Hello again everyone,

It's time for our October challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit! As always, anything altered art or mixed media goes (no cards please!)

I'm very fond of my make for this month, and it's going up on the wall right next to another steampunk canvas I did a little while ago!


The picture doesn't show it very well, but the background is a bronze tone (A 13 Arts paint I got in a Craft Box mixed media box) , while the different elements are all highlighted with gold (from my Rustoleum gold leafing pen. I am in love with that thing!).


The penny farthing is a gorgeous piece from Fernli Designs, as are about half of the gears. the other half and the rest of the embellishments are from Craft Box. I am hopelessly in love with the clock stencil in the background (got that from craft Box too), and a little bit of Distress ink really made it pop!


I had so much fun doing this canvas, and just love the way it came out. hubby loves it too, so it's definitely going up in our living room!



I hope you'll check out the gorgeous work done by me fellow teamies, and then come and play with us!

Have a most fantabulous day!

October challenge - Altered Eclectics

Morning all!

Time for our October challenge over at Altered Eclectics!

I did a canvas, which is a little different from my usual...


I decided I really needed to do something with some of the 250000 buttons I have, especially the ones that aren't nice enough to use on a card or anything where they'll be too visible... so I decided to use them here, paint over them, and then highlight with silver (for which I used a Rustoleum silver leafing pen). apart from the buttons, all the embellishments came from Craft Box. Did you know that aside from the normal box (charms, papers, embellishments and more), Craft Box now also do a mixed media box? I've had all three of them so far, and they're packed with awesome stuff, like the brilliant art stones I used here.

So, that's mine, now do yourselves a favour and go take a peek at what the rest of the team have made! after that, why not come and play with us?

Back in just a minute with another post, but until then, hope you're enjoying your day!
