Today see's the start of another fortnightly challenge at That's Crafty Challenges and our theme is
So time to get all down and dirty and grunge up your makes.
I searched for the definition of Grunge and among other things it said "Grubby and dirty"
For my Grunge inspiration piece I have made a 5" square box canvas and called it:-
I first applied modelling paste through Tim's Bricked stencil, blending out the paste where I knew my image was going. Once dry I then applied suitable colours of paint. I used paperartsy Fresco chalk paints in, base layer Concrete and then in this order Tikka and Chutney. Finally and using a large dry brush Little Black Dress. I then watered down slightly some Decoart Traditions transparent Red Iron Oxide. Then splashed with white Indian Ink.
I then stamped my image "Christmas Angel" by Ocopode onto gesso covered book page and then coloured lightly with gelatos. I have added a little bit of torn sequined netting to her dress and rust embossed her halo (unfortunately photo doesn't really show these well) and then adhered to my canvas using ranger glue & seal.
Finally my sentiment "Fallen Angel" was typed out on my vintage typewriter and again applied with glue & seal.
so if you fancy getting all "Down & Dirty" pop over over HERE and join in with us all.
