The last challenge I did was back in January.. Can you believe how quickly this year has gone! I have spent lots of time in my study.. Me on one desk and the boys on theirs... developing both our skills, albeit in differing areas!
When I saw this challenge.. Lots of earthy, industrial colours. I knew exactly what I was going to do!!
See this awesome background... I wanted to play with organic shapes and rusty toned colours. I had absolutely no plan, I just wanted to layer up.
I loved the neutral colours in the chipboard.. but decided that they needed to be showcased. So.. loaded them up with Black Gesso and pulled out my Waxes so I could work with their metallic effects.
I wasn't confident with the orientation of the project so I flipped it!! So glad I did.. It gave way to the perpendicular lines of Corrugated Iron that is represented in the Mood board.. Not sure if its all that clear but I love the way the light dances on the metallic waxes in the Chipboard.
Who doesn't love a Work-in-progress pic!
AND... a close up!!
Thanks for checking in and having a look! Don't forget to have a look at the Dusty Attic website for all the cool grunge chipboard for your next project!
