Rust, and its copper equivalent Verdigris, are my favourite weathered effects. It immediately gives a Vintage look to your creations and I was inspired to make a foray in the Steampunk area with this canvas. Come and see how I made this on my blog.
I am in a phase of mixing rusty elements with lighter and/or brighter colours and I am also experimenting with abstract art, so I have mixed it all up for this challenge. As always more details and photos can be see over at Bumblebees and Butterflies, but the warmer weather is definitely on it's way and inspiring my creations.
For my rust project this month I have created a tag using new Distress and Tim Holtz products. My rusty birdcage has been created using paint.
Pop over to my blog to see how I created this tag.
A very happy 1st April to you all...there will be no catching me out today on April's Fools' day because it's also my birthday..yes honestly. I will be catching up with all the family later and enjoy a meal out and cake (of course). Our theme for April is rust and I must admit I did struggle a little with this at first. However I eventually decided on a "rust" coloured and textured female greeting card. I made rusted butterflies and used lots of other textures and colours. If you would like to see some more step by step details do pop over to my blog here where a slice of birthday cake very warm welcome awaits you.
