Howdy all and happy happy Friday !! Seems like forever since I've been able to get in my room and create something. This post is about my Compendium Challenge Project. This weeks challenge is #46 - Painted Industrial. A really cool technique that uses Rangers foil tape sheets .. cool stuff !!!
I decided to do a canvas and I picked three different texture fades to change up the different pieces. Here are the texture fades I used
I used Subway, gears and Damask. I laid my foil tape sheet on a piece of grunge paper and ran it through my Vagabond with the three different texture fades. Then I used Stacked Stars, Rickety House, on the fence and branch tree sizzix dies to cut my shapes out. Here's where is started
I'm really not sure why but it took a Halloween turn .. I must be ready for my Brach's Mellowcreme pumpkins to hit the shelves :) So I added mustard seed, dried marigold, black soot and walnut stain to dull down the book paper I put down. I also used a stamp from Tim's set spooky stuff.
SO I thought this would be it, but I kept looking at it and decided it needed more
I didn't have a die for little bats, so I had to do them free handed (hey I tried) lol. I used mustard seed distress glitter behind the windows to add a little something to the house. I had so much fun with this technique !!
