You have until June 15.
So, I started out with this cute, little, crooked house.
My assistant and I started rusting a bunch of things: some diecut pipes I made with my Bigshot, using my latest Tim Holtz pipes die and cardboard. A gear-clockwork thingy, loose gears. I wasn't sure what I wanted to use, so we just rusted some items, using mostly my Viva Decor Rust paste.
I gave the house a coat of greenish acrylic paint, then a coat of crackle medium,
then another coat of blue acrylic paint. I sanded it a bit, too.
Once the Rust Paste was dry, I dropped some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Brass onto some parts and rubbed some Inka Gold - Turquoise onto other parts.
I added the pipes and gears where I liked them and glued everything in place. I sprinkled some Infusions - Sleight Blue on my project and sprayed water to activate it. The black soot gave it an even more realistic distressed feel.
Using gel medium, I added micro beads in gold an black on my project here and there.
I sprinkled and dropped some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Verdrigris onto my project too, for a finishing touch. It's a wonderful copper color with turquoise.
I wrapped some wire around the upper pipe and lower tap,
and strung some teardrop shaped beads in the wire.
The text 'Memory Lane' is from a 7Dots sheet.
To the backside of the window, I stapled some chicken wire and rusted it a bit.
I hope my take will have inspired you to create something too!
