Grunge Master Board Inspired by Jo


Over on the PA blog, Jo's been making a master board, to see what she did click here. I decided to use a piece of corrugated as my base and instead of text paper used a napkin.


Once dried, I gave it a coat of watered down vanilla fresco to tone it down a bit.


I then added the green and blues until I was happy with what I had, and added some stamping using the PA minis.


The centre piece I painted with Baltic blue and added guacamole by scraping with a credit card and distressed the edges and coloured with Hyde park.


I used some TH dies, some arrows, a wooden heart and a piece of embossed stencil to create the centre pieces.


And this is the assembled finished piece.
