By gosh by golly...




I'll admit that what I ended up with is completely opposite to what I had started out with which I covered with a layer of white paint to which I loved the next morning! lol Funny how that happens, but sometimes giving in to defeat and starting over can be the best thing. Other than the white paint everything else if Faber Castell, the gelatos and the PITT pens. I love how smoothly they blend over the acrylic paint.

I hope it looks rustic enough, it's a style I don't do often, at least not intentionally which made for a good learning experience.

I also got a chance to add some practice to my typography with Marie Browning, she makes it looks so darn simple. I tried using my Tombow over the acrylic paint but it didn't show up black enough so I had to go over it again with my Micron Graphic....BOTH which rub off of acrylic paint pretty well with some spit...just saying, did I mention I need practice?

The screws if you are wondering are real screws that I used as a stamp with my Stazon ink...they worked out OK I guess, but then by golly I need practice with that technique too! lol

Good for you Sandee, for stepping out of your comfort zone and producing a great piece of art. (I know a thing or two about that spit thing...LOL)

Have a great weekend.

Love this and love the screw stamp. I usually don't think creativly as such , just hit myself in the head when I see someone else do it and wonder why I didn't think of it.
