Enjoying fall, or maybe spring? It's getting colder here, time to put on our jeans again, so the color scheme of this month's 'Words & Paintery' challenge is perfect!
You can find the October challenge here. If you're as inspired by these colors as I was, please join us.
You have until November 15.
Recently I dragged Connor along, to a whole bunch of treetrunks near a farm I pass on my way to work. We did a photo shoot with him posing a little and playing a lot. Before taking pictures I already envisioned Connor in front of the tree circles, continuing those circles with the wood discs my father cut for me.
I started out with this gorgeous sheet of #Kaisercraft paper from their 'Old Mac' collection, called 'Rusty'. Using #gelmedium I adhered it to a 12 by 12 inch canvas.
Using a stencil with branches and modeling paste and the top section of an old pair of jeans from Connor, I created my background.
I cut out pieces of the pair of jeans and covered the sides of my Canvas with them.
I sprayed the branches and made some drips using #Prima #colorbloomspray "Deep Teal". This spray is very opaque.
Using black ink I stamped some text following the lines of my background.
I arranged the wood discs, both natural and smaller blue ones, behind my picture.
I added some bits of cross-patterned #woodboard too.
Behind the picture I used some circle-shaped wire.
Added some metal embellishments, wood texts and wrapped some bits of string around my picture, with a touch of jeans here and there.
Treated the wood texts with #structure paint in #cementlook, then decided they needed more #rust. I used #vivadecor #Rusty Paper and #finnabair #rustpaste throughout my entire layout to rust things.
For a finishing touch I used #7dots text stickers, #13Arts blue mica flakes and silver microballs.
Hope you like it! Questions and comments are always welcome!
Don't forget to play along!
