Another Eleventh Hour Challenge Entry
June Challenge: Shades of Grey, Blue and Rust
I started out with a wooden embroidery hoop: Spray painted black, touched up with dark pewter acrylic by Martha Stewart. The blue porcelain effect is made with a layer of Tim Holtz Picket Fence Crackle Medium. Once dry I colored it with Adirondack Alcohol ink in Stream, then I embossed it with clear embossing powder.
I think the middle, 3-sectioned circle is from a lamp shade, but I'm not positive. It was in my stash.
The gears started out an insane bright plastic red. I spray painted them black and then gave them a metallic look by adding metallic paint, metallic rub or embossing with metallic embossing powder.
To make rust I started out with a layer of Tim Holtz Rock Candy Crackle Medium. Once dry, using a hard paint brush I stippled over it with a mix of orange and burnt umber paint. Then I set my heat gun to it and fried it until the mixture began to darken, peel and crackle. Rust!
I cut the feathers out on my Silhouette.
To make them metallic I followed the same procedure as for the gears.
