WIP and it may be a while!!!


Using the back off an A4 note pad I spliced the top off to make a squareish piece and then made the smaller piece into a tag.  Put some grunge paste through a couple of different stencils and then added masking tape.


Once dry I painted them with black gesso and then went over them again with white gesso using the dry brushing technique to draw out the textures. Next I randomly added some DecoArt textured sand paste.


Once that was completely dry, I painted over the sand pasted areas with paynes grey.  

Unfortunately I can't go any further with this as I need the transparent yellow iron oxide to create my rust effect, but I just thought I'd share what I've been up to!!!

I adore grey shades so am really liking your cover so far, reminds me of a very grungy chalkboard look. Hope you get your yellow very soon:-) xxx
