Rustic Elements

Preped some chipboard die cuts using gesso, texture sand paste and matte medium.

Then I chose some pieces to add to my base of foam board, masking tape, cotton scrim and gesso. 

I painted some of the pieces with paynes grey.

Sprayed the foam board with turquoise shimmer media mister and added transparent yellow iron oxide media paint.

And this is the finished piece which eventually took on a blue / green tone.

A few close ups, bottom left hand corner.

The silver washers painted in gesso, paynes grey and quinacridone gold.

The lock and key made to look like rust.

And the top left corner, more rust effects and the cotton scrim through the foam board.

Cotton scrim under the frameworks die painted in ultramarine media paint.

Then I decided to add the PA words as I felt it needed a little something else at the top. When I looked back at my original layout, I forgot the heart at the top!

All products ie paints, misters and mediums are from the DecoArt media range.

It's gorgeous! Have recently started to follow, and I hope you don't mind me asking but why have you used foam board for the base?
