I started off by scraping grunge paste through 3 different stencils onto a large corner shaped chipboard jigsaw piece.
I randomly painted various chipboard die cut shapes in little black dress and pewter fresco.
Now over at the PA blog Alison was playing around with rusting powder on her 3rd project for this week. I don't have any of the PA rusting powder but I do have a realistic rust kit which I bought ages and ages ago, so thank you Alison for inspiring me to get it out and use it again!!
Close up of one of the chipboard cogs after it had been rusted.
And an arch.
And the jigsaw piece with the grunge paste.
I had to tip them so you can see the overall effects.
And the bingo numbers.
And this is the final piece using an arch and a few of the cogs that have all been rusted. I punched holes into the arch, added eyelets and threaded through wired raffia. Added chain and two chipboard cogs to the top to hang it. I put a larger cog in the open space and added an idea-ology cherish tag. I added cogs, gears, other bits of metal including a wired 'S' shape.
Our Creative Corner have a theme this month of tic tac toe - steampunk. If you check over on their blog you can see the ingredients for each line. I've gone with letters, texture, wire.
Over at Country View Crafts they have a theme of letters this month. I'm going to enter with the word 'cherish' but I'm not actually sure that it will count.
